It’s the New year and you may be thinking about a new trimmer, fitter you for 2022 but you aren’t quite ready to venture out to the gym.
Many people will want to shed a couple of pounds and tone up their bodies especially after being in lockdown for so long, but not everyone can afford a gym membership. Home workouts are the easier way to achieve good results, and you do not have to wait longer for the devices that are occupied in the gym.
By doing a home workout, you can concentrate better on your body and get the right moves to achieve good results. A daily workout of 10-15 minutes has many positive effects on you. By exercising you reduce your stress levels and happiness hormones are released; regular exercise may improve your sleep quality, immune system, and blood circulation level.
The best thing about these workouts is that you don’t need equipment at all. Here are five exercises you can do in the comfort of your home that will help you tone up and get trim.
1 High knees:
Stand shoulder-width apart on your mat. Lift your right leg; then raise your right hand above your head and then bring it in front of your body. The right hand should now meet the right knee. Put your leg back and repeat the process on the left side. The faster you get, the more effective it will be!
2 Squat jumps:
Squat jumps are a popular warm-up exercise. For doing this exercise, stand wide on your mat. Get into the squat position and put your hands in front of your body. Keep your back straight, bend your knees and squat down. Now jump out of the squat as high as you can. Land in the squat position. Repeat this process for the 30s.
It is a great all-rounder exercise. Lie flat on your stomach, position your hands under your shoulder and push yourself away from the floor. Keep your body under tension. Your body should form a straight line. If this exercise is too strenuous for you, you can keep your knees on the floor and try a simplified version.
Put your arms on the floor and lift your body to form a straight line. Hold your position, and that is it. Instead of using your forearm, you can also support yourself only with the palms of your hand or the side of your body.
5 Mountain climber:
Start with a plank position. Now slowly pull your knees up to your chin, one after the other. Carry out this movement in a controlled manner, and do not stress yourself. The slower you do this exercise, the more you will feel it in your abs.
The exercises mentioned above help you lose weight at home and do not need any equipment. It would help if you had a regular workout with total concentration and consistency to achieve your ideal weight.
If you want to get fit and stay fit, eating a well-balanced diet with regular exercise gives you the calories and nutrient intake you need. Not everyone exercises to lose weight but if you want to lose weight, you must remember to be in a calorie deficit. You must take a balanced diet and the right type of foods to burn calories.
Healthy eating and regular workout go hand in hand toward living a healthy and productive life.
