When going to the gym isn’t at option, you can still workout in the comfort of your own home.
Here are five home workout routines that you can do at a time that’s convenient for you.
Morning start: Jump out of bed and do this fat burning routine in your pjs. It’s not as intense as a HIIT workout, but it will help to get your blood flowing and promote the release of your natural feel-good endorphins to help you start your day feeling good.
Mid-day blast: This workout gets your heart rate up and challenges your body. It has lots of athletic style moves that promote muscle strengthening. And because it’s high-intensity, you’ll burn calories for a few hours afterwards.
Just a second: When you really don’t have a lot of a time, this quick one-move, one-minute challenge will help you get some activity into your schedule.
Tone that tummy: This 20-minute core abdominal workout is sure to make you feel great. If you have little ones at home, this routine is great for when they’re taking a nap.
Stress relief before bed: If you’re wound up at the end of the day, consider spending some time before bed doing this yoga-inspired routine. It’ll help you to connect your mind, body and breath. Stretching at the end of the day may help clear your mind and slow your energy down to help you get a good night’s sleep. It’s not a big calorie burner, but the relaxation and muscle stretching benefits feel great.
A home workout can be highly effective. Even if you only have time to squeeze in a few minutes of exercise, it can make a big difference with how you feel. Getting your body moving each day can build your self-confidence and your muscles, too.
