Home Workout – Working out when you’re stuck at home or when you’re traveling away from your home gym can be frustrating. Maintaining your daily fitness routine is important both for your physical and mental health! The good news is that, with a few simple tools, working out at home or on the go doesn’t have to be hard at all!
What is our biggest home workout must have? Resistance bands! Resistance bands take up very little space in your home, or in your suitcase (and weigh very little as well!). There is a vast variety of resistance band exercises you go try that will work out any part of your body. A quick internet search will help you put together a complete workout in no time at all!
Bringing dumb bell weights with you anywhere is pretty much impossible. They are heavy and awkward to luge around. Introducing: water filled weights! These inflatable weights are filled with water to reach your target weigh and then emptied when you’re done! These are a great choice if you have limited storage space or if you travel frequently and want something you can easily tug in your suitcase and go!
Body weight exercises, meaning exercises that don’t use any equipment, are a great way to start for beginners but if you are no longer a beginner and need something a little more challenging, adding a balance board to your body weight exercises is a great choice. A balance board can be used for balance and muscle training, helping to strengthen and stabilize your ankles, knees, core and shoulders. This durable balance board is lightweight, making it easy to carry and store between workouts!
If you’re looking for a serious core workout that’s a little more challenging? An abdominal wheel, when used correctly, can be a great tool for home workouts! It is important to ensure you are completing the moves correctly in order to strength rather then harm. Men’s Health shares 3 great exercises you can do with the abdominal wheel and shows you how to do them correctly as part of your home workout here!
When it comes to creating a home workout and finding the right equipment, pieces that can have multiple uses, take up less space or make use of equipment you already have are a great choice. This Adjustable Kettlebell Handle is a great example. Using weight plates you already have, you can adjust the weight to your desired weight quickly and easily – without having to store kettlebells in multiple weights!
