So, you are stuck at home and you don’t know what to do? Why not try out some fun and simple exercises? These exercises shape your body and don’t bore you. So, would you like to know what they are? Continue reading this post!
1. Jumping Jacks:
There is something so nostalgic about jumping jacks. Jumping jacks or star jumps help keep you fit and are great fun to do. They help enhance your balance and stamina. The best part is this is a great warm up routine and you can begin any routine after performing jumping jacks.
Walking is one fun activity that is best enjoyed outdoors. However, the weather does tend to be lousy sometimes, and during such times you have to adapt to the situation. Walk up and down a flight of stairs if you have one. Otherwise, you can take a circular path and trace it around the house. If you don’t have a lot of space at home, think about getting a treadmill and going for a walk on it.
3. Leg Lifts:
Leg Lifts are excellent for building your leg muscles. They will help you tone your thighs and strengthen your calves as well. If keeping your legs straight is straining, you can consider bending them slightly.
Crunches are the best exercises for building and toning your abs. Getting into the proper position is not so important when you are just starting out. As long you feel your muscles stretch, you will derive some benefit from the exercise.
5. Jogging On The Spot:
Jogging is one of the best exercises you can take up. You can either jog in place or jog on a treadmill if you have one. What’s more, you can even tune into your favorite music or watch your favorite sitcom while you do the routine. All you need is a decent pair of shoes.
Squats are one of the best exercises you can undertake and are quite effective in toning your thighs and lower body. If squatting isn’t an exercise you are keen on, you can even consider sitting down and standing repetitively to mimic the motion. As long as you do some repetitions, you will benefit from this routine.
7. Light Weight Lifting:
Don’t get bogged down by the word ‘weight.’ You don’t really have to go and buy those expensively calibrated weights for this routine. Begin with a light weight before you gradually move onto heavy stuff. You can even use a can of peas and gradually move onto milk jugs, detergent bottles and water jugs.
8. Step Exercises:
This is one of the best exercises to perform and is immense fun. You can perform many routines using the staircase at home. You can jump on and jump off the step or even run up and run down quickly.
Perhaps the most exciting and easy exercise on this list, dancing is great fun. Moreover, it is a good cardio workout and is especially good for your heart. Moreover, dancing makes you happy and lifts your mood.
Although this isn’t the most interesting exercise for many, and isn’t as fun as performing a star jump, you don’t need to go all Rambo and perform one-handed pushups. Do what works for you. For instance, if you have trouble doing pushups with your legs straight, you can consider keeping your knees bent. You can also perform pushups leaning against a wall .
