Exercising at Home
Exercising at Home
It's in our culture to constantly have
open houses, tea parties and gatherings with a wonderful spread of local
delights that's sure to tempt even the strongest willed. So make sure
you take out the time to get some exercise at home because the battle of the
bulge begins at home, from moderation and wise food choices to following
an exercise regimen, it all adds up. Being busy or on a tight budget
means that you will probably not have access to a gym, but this does not
mean you can't do a self styles workout at home. Here are some basic,
easy to do, exercises that will go a long way towards helping you stay
fit all year round.
- Stretching - Start your workout by
spending a good 15 minutes stretching. Concentrate on the muscle
groups that will be used on that day's workout regimen. For example,
stretch your legs if you are going to walk and jog that day.
- Walking - A good 45 minute walk
can be highly effective not only physically but also mentally as
with strolling in a garden or on the beach. This does wonders for
those who are really stressed out. Remember that the body only
starts burning fat after 20 minutes, so take a normal or moderate
brisk walk for the first 20 minutes then increase your pace or jog
for the rest.
- Push-ups - The toning and firming
of your muscles is also very important and without some free
weights, push-ups are the next best thing. Ideally if you are fit
you should be able to manage a couple of hundred if not try 3 sets
of ten push-ups each. Remember to space yourself out reasonably and
to start by going up as much as you can manage with at least some
- Stomach Crunches - Everyone knows
what these are so don't pretend! And yes we all hate doing
these but face it everything comes with a hidden price even that
blueberry cheesecake you paid for during your mid-journey stopover.
Lie flat with your legs arching and knees vertical, press your upper
back forward. A burning sensation in the abs means you're doing it
right, breath in as you press and release as you go back. This
should ease the burning sensation.
