5 Easy Exercises To Do At Home
Got that #BodyGoals just in time for summer? Or merely doing it for health reasons? No matter what your purpose might be, exercising is a vital part of our life. The good news is that staying active while you’re at home is possible even without using any equipment or weights. Well then, here are some indoor exercises that you can try. Read on and get those muscles soaring real good!
1. Push-ups and/or Baby Push-Ups
If you’re feeling like a couch potato, here’s a little push. Probably not little, though.
Doing push-ups helps build strength in your upper core, affecting entire parts of your body, particularly your back and core. For starters, do baby push-ups as you slowly move your head and get on your knees and hands. Once you get the hang of it, you may use your feet pointing against the floor with a planking position.
Make every push-up count. We’re here cheering you on!
2. Chair Dips
Before you dip the nachos into the salsa, make some chair dips first.
Also called tricep dips, chair dips work the forearm muscles on the back of the upper arms for some arm extension. Let’s begin by placing your palms on a chair and facing away from the chair. At a 90-degree angle, bend your knees enough so that your elbows are at the same angle as well. Do this to improve your upper body strength and build shoulder muscles.
Perform this on a daily basis for those toned arms you’ve always wanted.
3. High Knees
High five ‘cause you’re getting your knees high! We hope that you’re not tired yet.
Performing high knees strengthens your leg muscles and enhances physical balance, flexibility, and coordination. You may bend your knees at a 90-degree angle and lift them up to the waist level.
Did you know that you can get abs with this exercise, too? Go on and feel the burn!
Lunge, and not lounge. Apologies but there’s no room for the latter in this type of exercise.
Lunges aid in strengthening your legs, gut, and back muscles. Begin by standing straight with your feet and take your right foot forward, then stretch it a little. Bend your knees forward while you keep your back straight then pull it back and repeat alternately with the other leg.
It’s time to be up for a leg day, then!
5. Side Plank
Side planks keep the muscles strong to lessen the risk of a back injury. To reap the benefits of this simple exercise, lie on your side with your knees bent and maintain your forearm directly below your shoulder and then push up. Afterward, raise your hips and try to maintain this position as long as you can or up to 4-6 seconds.
Let’s go and we’ll be side by side doing this kind of plank!
Oh, that was fast! You’re already done!
At least 30 minutes of exercise a day will bring wonders to your well-being. While doing all these suggested indoor workouts, try wearing a proper outfit as it could contribute to your daily dose of perspiration. Plus, a cute outfit paired with our stylish and comfy socks from Dr. Motion could bring out the best in you.
