It can be difficult to stay fit if you don’t have a home gym, and you are stuck at home during this time. Exercising is a super important part of staying healthy. Luckily, there are some easy exercises you can do at home to keep fit without fancy equipment or a lot of space. A lot of these exercises are versatile and can easily be customized as well. Here are some ways to stay fit at home:
Jumping rope is an easy way to get cardio in without needing too much space. There are many great workouts to follow online, and it’s a fun challenging way to get fit. If you do not have a jump rope at home, you can use any rope you have on hand with some weight to it, or you can follow along to exercises without a rope.
Yoga is another great way to get some light exercise and stretching in. Plus it helps reduce stress as well (which we all got a lot of right now!) If you’re new to yoga, you can follow a beginner’s video on YouTube to get started.
Push-ups, Sit-ups & Crunches
Pushups and Situps are classic easy workouts that you can do at home without too much space as well. You can make them more challenging by adding some weights. There are different variations that can help you work out different parts of your muscles as well. These 3 exercises are great for working on body strength without any equipment.
Another great way to work on those core muscles is with planks! Planks are easy to do, and there are many variations if needed. They also don’t take up much space, and you don’t need equipment to do them.
Dumbbells don’t take up too much space, and if you already have dumbbells on hand, there are so many great workouts you can do. If you don’t have dumbbells at home, you can often find makeshift weights in your home such as jugs of milk, canned soup, or water bottles.
Resistance bands are another option for getting some exercise in. There’s also a lot of great videos for resistance band exercises. The best part is that they’re inexpensive, light-weight, and don’t require a lot of space.
You don’t have to be good at dancing to have fun and get exercise. Dancing requires no equipment and can be a great workout. Turn on some music or follow a video online to get some fun cardio exercise in.
Squats are also another easy exercise that you can do at home. It is a simple and great exercise for building strength. You can make squats more difficult by using weights or resistance bands. Again, if you do not have weights, you can always try looking for something in your home that has some weight to it and is easy to hold.
These are painful, but they are also a great workout. They also don’t require equipment or too much space in your house. There are different variations of burpees online to adjust to your fitness level or if you want to switch things up.
When in doubt, consult YouTube. There are so many great workouts on YouTube that can help you stay fit even if you are not able to leave your house. You can follow different kinds of videos or just stick to one that you really like. There are so many great options that can keep you motivated and having fun during this time.
I hope you’re able to try out some of these exercises and stay fit during this time. Stay safe and healthy!
