You know they say summer bodies are built in the winter. But it can be really hard to pull yourself out of bed on those dark, cold mornings sometimes. And maybe you haven’t quite committed to that gym membership just yet. Thankfully, fitness experts at Breaking Muscle have put together a list of the best at home exercises.
Breaking Muscle recommends starting with push-ups, and starting with 10 reps. You’ll lower the reps for each set until you’re at one. This should be 10 sets overall. Next will be the bird dog holds. Aim for 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps on each side. Then you’ll move on to the air squats, then hold squats, and end with the jump squats. The goal is three sets of 12 to 15 reps. The ultimate goal is to complete three sets before taking a rest.
Fitness Goals Don’t Need A Gym
A spokesperson for Breaking Muscle points out a common misconception when it comes to fitness goals:
“It’s a common misconception that the gym is the only way to complete a successful workout and reach your fitness goals. Our workout suggestions reveal that it is in fact possible to target multiple areas in your body with a workout that you can simply do at home. It’s much more flexible for those who find a membership too much of a commitment, as well as those who struggle to find the time in their day to make a trip to the gym. Movement is extremely important for not just our physical health, but our mental health too – so we encourage everyone to implement exercise into their everyday routine, especially now with the opportunity to do it from home.”
A great reminder that you can still get a great workout without gym equipment. But also an excellent reminder that movement isn’t just about our physical health. Our mental health needs it just as much!
