How To Get Fit Through Home Workouts

Thousands of people per year try to lose weight and get fit, enrolling in expensive gyms with high fees, hiring personal trainers, or running endlessly on treadmills. However, there are ways to get really fit–without even leaving your home, if you have the equipment. By following these simple tips, you can get fit without venturing out of your door.

Tip: You should always stretch if you are going to be exercising. Stretching is necessary after any workout to help ensure your muscles grow properly and give you the results you desire.

Stretch well before beginning a workout. If you have ever participated in organized sports, any team stretch will do. If not, begin my stretching down and touching your toes, then standing up and stretching to each side, standing up between. To prevent hurting your back, stand up and stretch down to each side. Then, sit down and stretch to each side, then stretch forward. Afterward, put the soles of your feet together and bring them in by wrapping your hands around your toes and pushing your calves down with your elbow. Look online for additional stretches. Hold each stretch for at least 15 seconds. Breathe deeply as your stretch.

Tip: You should build stronger abs not just to show off, but to increase your level of fitness. Performing sit-ups every morning will help you with this.

Start a cardiovascular workout just to get your heart beating faster. This can include walking (quickly) on a treadmill, running up and down the stairs, jogging or running on a treadmill, or doing jump rope. Be careful while running, even if on a treadmill, and be mindful of where your feet are landing and how you are breathing.

Tip: If you want to get more fit, walk more. For increased effort, walk by pushing off your heel and going to your toe.

Do push ups, pull-ups, and crunches to work your upper body and upper abdomen. These do not require any kind of equipment, however, you’ll want to bear in mind while doing pull-ups that you do them on a sturdy bar or surface. Coat racks in closets, door frames, and balcony railings are not safe places to do pull-ups or chin-ups.

Tip: Lifting weights is one way that people try to become fit. All you need are six exercises.

Do squats, lunges, and jumping jacks to work on your lower body and legs. These are particularly easy to do indoors, and so you can take care to do them every day, regardless of your environment. Mind that you don’t do them in an office while wearing your work clothes, though, as they can easily split your pants.

Tip: If you have injured a limb, continue to exercise the rest of your body while your injury is healing. This will not only keep up the strength of the “good” limb, but also continue to energize the muscles and nerves in the opposite one, preventing shrinkage of muscle fibers.

Do crunches, leg raises, and reverse crunches to work on your abdominal muscles (abs). These are also very easy. Be mindful of not pushing your head up with your hands while you do crunches, as this can cause neck strain.

Tip: Use an array of different exercises to keep from getting into a workout rut. This will help avoid routine in your fitness plan and keep you motivated to come back to your workout the next day.

After working out, stretch thoroughly. Though the jury is still out of the effects stretching after workouts has on weight loss, you should be careful to stretch after workouts regardless, because it will prevent injury.

Drink water all day, and during, before, and after your workouts. This will help you to lose weight, and stay hydrated and healthy during your workout.

If you work hard and push yourself, you should be able to see some results without even leaving your home. If you feel self-conscious while working out in front of others, working out at home can be a great way to build muscle and trim fat, without worrying about the prying eyes of others.
