Well, today we are going to be sharing with you a few easy exercises you can do at home! You can implement these exercises into your daily workout routine and see the amazing results.
Another benefit of these exercises is that you don’t have to spend too much time. Maybe you have a tight schedule, or you are a stay at home mommy but you still want to stay in shape. If that’s the case, then these easy exercises are just for you!
Here is the program in a short version:
- Warm up
- Jumping jacks
Don’t get afraid! I promise that the exercises are easy and fast. So without further ado:
Easy exercises you can do at home!
1. Warm up. (pre-exercise)
It’s important to warm up your body before you start working out. You can take a 10-minute walk around the neighbourhood, a jog, or maybe to a 5-minute warm-up routine. Either way, you want to make sure that you always warm up your body before you start the exercises. You can damage your muscles if you don’t warm up your body before any exercises. The best way to warm up your body is to take a jog or a walk around the neighborhood. After that simply do some easy stretches and you will be good to go.
2. Jumping jacks.
Now we are getting into the actual exercises. Sure, many people can argue that jumping jacks are a warm-up exercise, but I would argue on that. Jumping jacks can prepare your body for the following exercises and it will boost up your heart rate.
- Start by doing 15 jumping jacks.
- Take a 1-minute break.
- Do another 15 jumping jacks.
Squats are the best exercise you can do for your legs and butt. If you want to shape and tone your legs and booty, then do squats every day! Your body will thank you for it!
- Start by doing 15 squats.
- Take a 30-second break.
- Do another 10 squats.
- Take a 1-minute break
- Finish off by doing 15 more squats.
Sidekicks are another great exercise aimed at the lower part of your body. They can greatly impact your butt size and they are easy to do.
- Do 15 sidekicks on one leg.
- Without pausing, move on to the other leg and do 15 more.
Now we are moving on to arms. I know, I know. Push-ups are not the easiest thing to do and quite frankly, not a lot of people can do them. You don’t have to do an actual pushup when you are just starting to work out. In reality, the chances for you to make a push-up when you just start working out are very small. That’s why you can watch the video below to get a clearer understanding of how to do push-ups for beginners.
Do 10 push-ups.
(If you can’t do 10 at a time, just split them into 5 push-ups with a little break in between)
And now, the time has come to do the dreadful abs workout. We all know that abs aren’t the most favorable part of a workout, but nonetheless, they are very important. Doing the basic abs workout will do you just fine.
- Do 10 repetitions.
- Take a 1-minute break.
- Do another 10 repetitions.
If your muscles feel sore after the first day, take a magnesium vitamin and rest for a day. Don’t push yourself on working out every single day when you just started working out. It will do more bad than good.
After a while of doing these exercises, you might feel that these numbers are just not enough for you. In that case, just bump up every exercise for +5 reps. Just add 5 more reps every week and you will notice a difference.
The most important thing you should keep in mind when you start working out at home is that you shouldn’t bring yourself down if you miss a day of working out. Keep yourself motivated and don’t get off the tracks.
