When you rushed to the stores to stock up on essentials, you didn’t realize you were gathering at-home gym props as well. Now that you might not be able to visit your local fitness center, here are some creative, at-home exercises to keep fit.
Do you need a two to three-pound weight for strength training? Head to the pantry because you probably bought a can or two of beans. The medium bag of rice you totted to your house is an excellent four to five-pound weight. Did you know a gallon of milk weighs eight pounds?
There is no need to lament the fact you can’t travel to your athletic facility or studio. Let’s use that time to sweat and stretch at home.
If you live in a high rise, ditch the elevator and start climbing those stairs. If you have a basement at your home, start there and walk to the top floor of your house. Repeat three times, and you’ll feel that heart rate increasing. Try these other quick and easy cardio exercises.
It’s time to return to the groceries. Be sure to gather your spouse, children, or grandparents together as you gain muscle tone that you’ll show off when we venture outside again.
Be sure your doctor approves of any exercises you plan to tackle. These simeple, at-home exercises to keep fit won’t just tone and strengthen your body, it also releases endorphins – the body’s feel-good chemicals.
