Exercising at Home
Now that the gyms are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be finding it challenging to get in a good workout. While practicing social distancing and staying at home may limit your workout schedule, there are still things you can do to stay fit. Here are some suggestions you can try.
Take Your Workout Virtual
Not only can a good workout keep you fit but, in times like these, it’s also essential to take care of our mental health — and exercising is an excellent way to stay mentally fit! While there are plenty of online fitness classes that may require a monthly subscription, you can always try YouTube. Youtube has an abundance of workout videos from yoga and Zumba, to full-body workouts, and more!
Take Your Workout to The Backyard
Did you know that doing yard work is good exercise? If you’ve been putting off that backyard project, now is the time to do it! Not to mention, gardening can get you moving, too. If you have a pool, take a few laps each day. Rummage through your garage and look for outdoor sports equipment that can get you moving, such as a basketball or whiffle ball and bat.
Dust off the Home Gym Equipment
You may have some workout equipment that hasn’t been used in a while. Why not take this opportunity to start using the treadmill or stationary bike that you have at home? You can take your workout up a notch by incorporating weights. During your treadmill workout, try incorporating bicep curls and tricep extensions.
