Can’t afford a Gym membership? Make your own “SOLO” workout and watch the inches melt away! Here’s how. . .
This is a great desktop workout plan if you happen to have a desk job. The point of this workout is to get you up and moving several times per day, throughout the day. This keeps your metabolism boosted and keeps your energy levels up.
Craft Sticks/Popsicle Sticks (You can get packages of these at the dollar store)
2 Solo Cups (or any other cup you can write on)
Write an exercise on each popsicle stick and place it in a Cup marked “Get off your Butt”. Each day, make it a point to complete at least 5 of the exercises in the cup, randomly drawn.
We recommend that you color code them per muscle group. Just run a colored highlighter over the end of each stick depending on the muscle group the exercise works.
Red- Arms- Biceps-Triceps
Green- legs, Hamstrings, glutes
Here are some examples that we use in ours:
- 25 Jumping Jacks
- 50 Jumping Jacks
- 50 Stair Climbs
- 25 Push-ups
- 25 Abdominal Crunches
- 25 Nasty Abdominals
- 25 Side Bend Abdominals
- 25 Speed Skates
- 25 Heismans
- 20 Glute Kickbacks
- 15 Jump Squats
- 15 Single leg squats
- 20 Standing Side Squats
- 25 Reverse Crunches
- 20 Leg Raises
- 60 sec jog in place
- 15 Mountain Climbers
- 10 Burpees
- 20 Supermans
- Plank – For as long as you can hold it- 3 x’s
- Wall Sit- for as long as you can hold it 5x’s
- Plie Squat
Here are some additional exercises you can use
While these can be used as your entire workout, this is just a boost in addition to my daily workout plan to keep my metabolism boosted and energy levels high. If you want this to be your complete workout, be sure to include exercises for all of the muscle groups.
So what are you waiting for? Go Grab your Solo Cup!

this sound great. i home school 2 children, sometime we get wraped up in desk work and forget when the bell rings to move around. so I ‘m going to set my timer for classes and when we are done with a class we will draw a craft stick.
this is a cute idea! it’s good to put it out in the open so that others can see it and join in. 🙂
