The Covid-19 pandemic and the eventual two-month-long circuit breaker has gotten all of us accustomed to working out at home. But unlike the gym, we might not have access to the necessary exercise machines or weights. But fret not, with a little bit of creativity, there are some common household items that you can use as workout equipment.
For instance: Estelle Low, editor of Shape Singapore, tried out the “TP workout” that went viral during the height of quarantine season. 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.
