There are many home exercises that can be done during this lockdown period. If you are already a gym junkie or a fitness lover, you probably miss going to the gym where there are many equipment used to assist your training and help create the whole workout mood. With a little bit of creativity, you can still recreate the mood of being in a gym and perform your exercises. Create weight training equipment from items you can find at home like a bag of rice, heavy tires, mineral water bottles or even carrying someone else like the children safely. It’s all in the power of creativity and how motivated you are to keep fit.
For cardiovascular health, you can simply walk around the house or up the stairs for a mild exercise. For more intense activity, grab a skipping rope and skip continuously for 5 minutes or longer, depending on your capability. Another fun way to increase your heart rate is by dancing! This is an amazing activity that you can even include your children or partner. Blast up your favourite music and sweat it out while you execute your best moves. It is suggested that you exercise at least 30 minutes a day, five times a week for good cardiovascular health.
Besides those mentioned above, there are other interesting physical activities that you may try. These include yoga, tai chi, pilates and so on. These will build your flexibility, stability and also strength. You may also build your muscle strength by doing resistance exercises with your resistance band if you have one. Otherwise, you can just perform your squats, lunges and hip thrusts with only your weight.
