As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, millions of Americans are finding themselves at home, away from their regular fitness activities. But just because the gyms are closed doesn’t mean that you must sacrifice your physical fitness.
Keep reading below to see five great exercises you can do while staying home.
50 Pushups Throughout Your Day
Pushups are the go-to work out for millions of Americans, and they’re at top-of-mind for a reason. Pushups work out a broad group of upper-body muscles, including biceps, triceps, shoulders, and the lower back.
3 Sets of 10 Tricep Dips
Looking for an exercise to do first thing in the morning? Well, you’re in luck! Once you’ve shaken the sleep out of your body and stretched your limbs, try doing tricep dips off the side of your bed to give your arms the burst of energy they need.
15 Minutes of Shadowboxing
Shadowboxing is an excellent workout for those who practice the sweet science and is a fun exercise for those who are stuck at home as well! By combining fast footwork, heavy punches, and weaving away from imaginary blows, shadowboxing is a great way to support your cardio health and tone your muscles.
10-15 Mountain Climbers
Wanting a hiking experience without leaving your front door? Clear some space and get on the ground for some mountain climbers! Mountain climbers are done from the classic push-up position then raising each leg to your chest, giving you the same cardio workout you would find on a hike.
3 Sets of 10 Lunges
Plenty of workouts are dedicated to upper body strength, but core and legs are just as important for your stay-at-home health. Lunges are a great way to strengthen your quads, build up your core, and improve your overall sense of balance.
