4 Fundamental Modified Gym Exercises You Can Do in the Comfort of Your Living Room
1) Bench Press
This is a classic horizontal push exercise, that works your chest, shoulders and triceps. Place your hands out wide on the armrest of the couch, (wider than your shoulders) and your feet on the floor, lock in your core, keep your neck straight and in line with the spine and do a slow push up to work those same muscles at home.
