Let's face it, the pandemic has hit the fitness enthausiast's the hardest, as gyms across the country are either shut, or people are reluctant to join the gym due to the ongoing pandemic. While working out at the gym is extremely convenient, the same cannot be said for those working out at home. In such a scenario, many get disheartened and give up working out altogether. So what can you do if you want to continue working out from the comfort and safety of your homes? And do you need to invest in overpriced home workout kits? Let's take a look.
Doing bodyweight exercises:
One of the best and most effective ways of working out at home is to opt for body weight exercises such as squats, push-ups, pullups etc, and is the best way to restart your fitness regime. In all likelihood you have been away from the gym for months at end, choosing simple body weight exercises will let your body adapt to a new regime and will help you get into shape.
Using resistance bands:
If bodyweight exercises are not your cup of tea, then investing in a set of resistance bands is the way to go. Not only are they extremely cost effective, but unlike dumbbells, they do not occupy a lot of space. You can use these resistance bands to perform various chest workouts at home, and you can look up the internet to understand how to use them to perform various leg workouts at home as well.
Don’t skip out on cardio:
At the gym, you may spend a fair amount of time on the treadmill or cycling, but that does not mean that you cannot perform the same exercises at home. If you have a cycle at home, then going for a morning or evening ride will help you get in shape and will also strengthen your cardiovascular system. If you do not own one, then going for a morning or an evening jog or run will help you achieve similar results.
Working out from home needs to be convenient, in order for it to be sustainable and once you have a routine going for yourself, then hitting your fitness goals should be a cakewalk for you.
