Move Your Butt: 5 At-Home Exercises

This article is brought to you by our very own HeWe Co-Chair, Emily Chen.

Been potato-ing in front of the laptop all day? You ain't the only one. It's time to get up and move your butt! You'll be a hot mess afterwards, but it'll feel SO. GOOD.

"But I'm too lazy to go all the way to the gym!"

We feel you... so we cooked up this workout that you can easily do in the comfort of your home. You literally have no excuses now. 😄

Introducing Team HeWe's favourite at-home exercises...

1. Le Butt Kicks

Wake up and kick some butt. Literally. Do as fast as you can for 1 min. 

(Bonus points if you can be as happy-faced as Michael here!)

2. High Knees

This is running on FLEEK! The higher you lift your knees, the more fly you'll feel.

Do as many as you can in 1 min.

3. Squat Jumps

Squat like you mean it, and then REACH for the stars! #inspiringAF. Do 15 reps (30 seconds).

4. Jumping Jacks (aka The Happy Sea Star)

Keep yo arms n' legs controlled. No floppy sea stars here. Do as fast as you can in 1 min.

5. Side Plank (aka The GIMME OBLIQUES!)

Side abs FTW! Give your obliques some love by holding this for 1 min each on your left and right side (pro tip: it helps to contemplate the meaning of life during this mother of a minute). Be careful not to dip your hips down, and remember to savour that delicious feeling when you start shaking.


Repeat this five-exercise sequence for 3 times (or as many times as you like). Make us proud, and don't forget to stretch and hydrate!
