A Fun Way to Workout with Popsicle Sticks!

A Fun Way to Workout with Popsicle Sticks!

Sarah

Are you ready to work out?

Great! Grab your Popsicle sticks and head outside, into the living room, or into the studio! You don’t have any Popsicle sticks? Well, let me show you how to make them!

Materials:

  • 6 Different Colored Permanent Markers or Paints
  • 2 Cups
    • 1 for used sticks, 1 for the unused sticks
  • 35 Wooden Sticks
    • Write 5 exercises for each of the following
      • Legs, Back, Chest, Shoulders, Biceps/Triceps, Cardio

 

Directions:

  • Paint your sticks! Pick a different color for every 5 sticks. Let them dry.
  • 5 Leg Sticks: Pick your exercises and how many you’d like to do!
    • Ex: Lunges, Squats, Step Ups, Box Jumps, Leg Extension, Leg Curl
    • If you want to build muscle, do heavier weights for 12 repetitions. For endurance, do a moderate weight for 20 repetitions.
  • 5 Back Sticks: Pick your exercises and how many you’d like to do!
    • Ex: Lat Pulldown, Pull Ups- wide grip or close grip, Rows- cable, bent over, one leg one arm

    • If you want to build muscle, do heavier weights for 12 repetitions. For endurance, do a moderate weight for 20 repetitions.
  • 5 Shoulder Sticks: Pick your exercises and how many you’d like to do!
    • Shoulder Press- neutral or overhead, Lateral/Frontal Raises, Shrugs, Push Press
    • If you want to build muscle, do heavier weights for 12 repetitions. For endurance, do a moderate weight for 20 repetitions.
  • 5 Biceps or Triceps or both: Pick your exercises and how many you’d like to do!
    • Bicep Curl, Hammer Curl, Frontal Bicep Curl, Tricep Extension, Overhead Tricep Extension, Tricep Dips
    • If you want to build muscle, do heavier weights for 12 repetitions. For endurance, do a moderate weight for 20 repetitions.

When you get to the gym or are ready to start your workout in your backyard grab your cup or sticks! Make sure you do a proper warm up before you being your workout. Grab a different colored stick after every exercise. Try to do two sets of each stick. For example, 2 sets of 12 reps of lunges right leg and left leg. Remember to alternate sticks so you don’t do too many of each muscle group! Or, focus on legs and shoulders with cardio one day and chest and back the next day. Mix it up!
