The Lazy Man’s Guide To at home workouts

Last Updated on January 13, 2023 by admin

At home workouts are becoming popular, and there has been no slowing down since the 2019 COVID pandemic. Despite the readily available vaccines and elevated protective measures, people have found solace in home workouts which are much more convenient in incorporating within the busy schedule than taking out time for gyms.

There is no need to make an effort to change into gym clothes, having to drive to the gym and wait for your turn to come in rush hour. You can begin at home. Thanks to technological advancements, you can now experience the camaraderie and excitement of fitness classes from your home.

Advantages of At Home Workouts

The following are some of the advantages of at home workouts:

  • Saving your time
  • Saving your money
  • Giving you privacy
  • Offering you flexibility
  • Keeping you on track with healthy living

Important for a healthy lifestyle is the inclusion of regular full-body workouts, which strengthen muscles, promote stronger bones and stimulate optimal blood circulation, develop a healthy functioning immune system against acute and chronic illnesses and also protect against mental issues, including depression and anxiety.

The most effective At Home Workouts

  • Bridge

A bridge exercise isolates and strengthens your gluteus, which is the buttock muscles—the gluteus maximus, medius, and minimus—and your hamstrings, which form the posterior chain. Using a bridge, activate your core and posterior chain. This is an excellent warm-up exercise. Lay down straight on a yoga mat and stretch your body muscles without moving the body. Once stretched, put your heels on the ground, and as you tighten your abdominal and buttock muscles, lift your body, starting from the lower part and going up to the shoulders. Lift until your knee makes a 90- degree angle with the floor. Hold for 15-30 seconds and then release to the original position. Rep 8 to 10 times more. Perform 1 set as a beginner, and gradually increase to 3 to 4 sets as your fitness improves.

  • Lunges

A well-planned exercise session always includes some exercises that push you through increasing your balance by putting a challenge it can achieve through. Lunges are a perfect pick to include while adding an exercise. Lunges target the glutes and leg muscles in particular while providing an enhanced movement function. Begin by standing shoulder-width apart with your feet and arms at your sides. Take a step forward with your right leg, bending your right knee until your thigh is parallel to the ground. Make sure your right knee extends within your right foot. Return to the starting position by pushing up with your right foot. This is one repetition. Three sets of ten reps are ideal for performing.

  • Pushups

Because of the number of muscles that come into play while performing this exercise, pushups are one of the most basic yet effective bodyweight moves you can perform. It focuses on the muscles of the chest, arms, and shoulders. Begin in the plank position. Your core should be tight, your shoulders should be pulled back and down, and your neck should be neutral. Bend your elbows and start lowering your body to the floor. When your chest brushes against it, keep your elbows close to your body throughout the movement. Perform three sets of as many reps as you can.

  • Squats

Squats improve lower-body and core strength and flexibility in the lower back and hips. Because they engage some of the largest muscles in the body, they also burn a lot of calories and help you lose weight. The tendons, bones, and ligaments around your leg muscles are strengthened as you exercise. Begin by standing straight, feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, and arms at your sides. Brace your core and, while keeping your chest and chin up, push your hips and back and bend your knees as if you were sitting in a chair. Make sure your knees aren’t bending inward or outward, and drop down until your thighs are parallel to the ground. After a one-second pause, extend your legs and return to the starting position. Perform three sets of 20 reps for effective results.

At Home Workout Precautions

At home workout has many benefits, and there are a few points to keep in mind while exercising. A 5-10 minute warm-up session is required before performing specific muscle exercises. Always remember to begin slowly and gradually build up your workout for effective results and avoid running the risk of injuries. Begin by walking, jogging, and running, followed by a stretching session to activate and prepare the muscles before a full-fledged workout session. When your workout is finished, make sure to cool down. Just 10 minutes of slower-paced exercise can allow your body to cool down, flush lactic acid out of your system, and prevent muscle soreness.
