Staying healthy and fit is as important as breathing. Nowadays people have surrounded themselves with gym equipment and trainers. What if you can afford a gym membership or what if you do not have enough time to go to the gym?
Keeping yourself fit and healthy is something that does not limit just to gyms. Those who want to stay fit will find a way carry out exercises and workout regime while staying the house.
Here are some of the easy exercises that you can try at your home and are super effective.
1. Jumping Jacks
Stand in a firm position with your feet and shoulder apart and your arms on the side of the body. In one motion jump, extending your feet out to the sides and raising your arms above your head. Come back to the original position with a jump. Do it continuously while keeping a count.
2. Side Plank
Side planks help in burning the extra fat. This workout sparks the profound stomach muscles which are difficult to reach through regular workouts. All you need to do is lay down on your side keeping legs stretched one on the top of another and elbow directly in the line with your shoulder. Lift your hip slowly above the ground till your body comes in a straight line form from ankles to shoulders. Stay in the same position for 30 seconds and repeat the process.
3. Seated Rotation
This exercise is kind of warm for the body. It should be done in the beginning. It prepares the body for a tough workout. For seated rotations, sit calmly on a chair or on the floor. Fold your arms and elbows just below your shoulder height. Smoothly turn from your waist with hips forward, without stressing your body. Hold in that position for 10-20 seconds and repeat on either side five times.
Breathing is an exercise in itself. It tones the abdomen. All you have to do is just sit with your back straight in a chair. Start taking deep breaths, contract your abs as you inhale and relax them as you exhale.
Walking for about 15-20 minutes a day powers up your lazy muscles.
