Even if the gym is open is worth going
We have been wary of gyms for months now because they are the perfect breeding ground for a pandemic. I know that some gyms are open but is worth risking your health and future health? Did you know that this virus that has lock downed the country can leave you ailing for years because of complications during the infection period. The virus can damage the lungs, heart and brain, which increases the risk of long-term health problems. So here is a great workout to burn lots of calories and build muscle while staying safe at home.
Why you should work out
Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lung health improve, you have more energy to tackle daily Task. You will have more testosterone and feel better.
It is simple and easy, but most people skip this step. It will make you workout easier and you will be less sore the next day. A great and full body warm up is jumping jacks just do them until you start to break a sweat. Once you have a sweat going the harder workouts will feel just a bit easier because we already have the blood flowing.
Body weight exercises
Push up plank- Start in the pushup position and do one push up. Then lower into a plank and from that plank position do a push up with your arms narrower than the first push. Do 15-20 repetitions
Suitcase crunch- Begin by lying down with the legs extended. Raise the legs off the ground approximately 2 inches. From this position, perform a crunch by bringing your knees towards your chest and your elbows towards your knees. Touch your elbows to your knees and return back to the starting position. Do the 30-50 repetitions.
Spider Man pushups- As you lower into the push up bring one knee up to your elbow. Make sure to switch sides. Do 10 reps for each leg.
Jumping squat lunges- Start in lunge and jump switching legs in the air. Go right then left and then get into a squat do one squat jump. Reset after squat jumping and repeat 10-15 times.
Sprinter lunge- Bring your knee and opposite arm up as high as you can like you are sprinting. Then drop down into a lung and come back up opposite leg and arm. Try to be explosive and balanced with this exercise. Do 10 reps each side.
Repeat these workouts 3-5 times and within a few weeks of doing them you will realize that you never really need the gym in the first place.
After every work out you do take 10 minutes to stretch. These 10 minutes will be invaluable in your fitness journey and life leaving you feeling loose and strong. Skip the sore ness and so some of your favorite stretch to reduce chance of injury and increase chance of working out the next day. Consistency is key to not only seeing the results but feeling the result!
