Cannot go to thegym for exercise? Do not worry. Here is a complete body workout that you can do in your own room.
Don’t get me wrong! I am not against going to gym. In fact, I highly recommend you to join a gym. A gym not only provides you a complete set of equipment to exercise your body but also motivates you and gives the energy to do so.
But here comes the reality. There are times when you just cannot go to the gym, and this can happen due to a number of reasons. Muster up your courage. There are ways to exercise your, almost, complete body without stepping your foot into a gym.
Start with a warmup before any exercise. I personally prefer brisk walk or rope jumping. As you might not have space to walk or a rope to jump, let us talk about alternatives. You can just imitate the rope jumping movement without a rope, quite simple. Do this for 5-10 minutes. If you take one-minute breaks, do some stretching instead of standing of sitting. Try to touch your toes, and then make an arch of your back to stretch it in the opposite direction. As you are not fully warmed up, do not try to push the limits.
Chest and Triceps
To train your chest and triceps, do 3-4 sets of pushups. In the last two sets, try to reach muscle failure. Muscle failure occurs when you are not able to complete any more repetitions.
Crunches are great for upper abdomen. Lay down with you back on the floor with knees bent. Raise your head and chest moderately to feel the stress on your upper abdomen. To train lower abdomen, lay down with your back on the floor and raise your legs.
Squat is a great exercise for legs. It is most effective when done with weight on your shoulders. However, your body weight is often sufficient to keep your thighs in a good shape. From the standing position, lower your hips to a sitting position until your thighs are parallel to the floor, and then stand up again. Keep your back arched at all times during squats.
