With gyms closed and group workout activities cancelled for the next few weeks due to new “circuit breaker” measures, at-home exercise is the way to go for the time being. Thankfully, creative folks have come up with fun ways to workout indoors with household items, such as using the much-coveted toilet paper.
Estelle Low, editor of Shape Singapore, tried out the viral “TP workout” herself and posted it on Instagram. The mum-of-two, who is in her 30s, says that all you need are about four rolls of toilet paper (which you probably have well stocked at home, let’s be honest here) as well as an exercise mat.
The easy workout entails alternating between 20 seconds of movement (as many reps as possible) with 10 seconds of rest. Estelle suggests repeating the circuit two to four times for optimal effect. Each rep includes using the TP in various ways, from single leg lifts with a TP tower to hand-to-foot TP passes.
