The Wall Workout: Full-Body Exercise in 30 Minutes!


I can’t believe I haven’t shared a wall workout sooner! When you add a wall as a prop to bodyweight exercises, you’re able to activate your upper body and core muscles in a more effective way. Plus! You can adjust the intensity, depending on things like how far you stand away from the wall, how deeply you go into the poses, etc. making this a workout for all levels of exercisers. So, yes, seniors (you teachers’ pets you ❤), this one is totally appropriate for you, too!

 

This follow-along workout is all standing, so it’s all the more convenient for when you’re working out at a campground and using your RV as your wall like I’m doing in the vid. I chose exercises to train your functional fitness, so the goals of this workout were to not only improve your strength, but also the quality of your joint movement (aka joint mobility) as well as the range of motion of your joints (flexibility) AND of course, improving your posture. Good posture keeps us young!

Camping World sponsored this workout, so a big thanks to them for that. I very much appreciate their support of a healthy and fit RV lifestyle for us all. We’ve been inside loads of Camping World stores over the years, and find them so handy for picking up anything RV-related we need when we’re on the road.

There are more workouts and fit tips here on the website, so feel free to stick around and check things out! Stay healthy, and be strong, fit friends!

Love,

Trainer Stef

      Love this workout! Had to figure out how to wedge tablet into window frame on my Travato so I could follow along. Love how whole body it is while being easy to adjust difficulty. I hope you do another one that’ll work on inside of EKKO’s for yucky outside days, without needing any extra equipment. 🙂

        That’s a great idea; perhaps I’d call it a ‘small-space’ workout! Thanks for that suggestion; and I’m glad to hear you’re giving the Wall Workout a thumbs up, too! xo

      I’m doing MY FITNESS PAL app. Have started your utube senior beginning resistance band workout. About how many calories do you think we use?

        I’m a big fan of MyFitnessPal, glad to hear you’re using it! Calories as you likely know vary widely based on one’s weight, age, fitness levels, metabolism, muscle mass, etc and also varies based on how much intensity you’re putting into the workout. But! Perhaps a comparison will help you guesstimate more closely. Harvard Health states that for someone 155lbs, 30 minutes of walking 3.5mph burns 149 kcals, walking 4.0mph burns 167 kcals, and dancing 30 mins burns 205 kcals. Compare your own intensity in doing this workout to the intensity of those tasks, and hopefully that helps you come up with a close guess. And if you weigh less, subtract calories! People who weigh more, burn more. Hope this helps!
