Even if exercise is something you enjoy, you may not be a fan of the traditional gym environment. While working on your physical health, it’s also important to keep your mental health on the radar, and it starts with honoring your preferences. The good news is that your inclination to skip the gym could save you some big bucks over time. To begin or continue working out from the comfort of your apartment home, use the following household items listed below. We guarantee that you’ll have an excellent workout, and you will be happy to save on those credit card payments down the road.
One person’s towel is another person’s resistance band! Use a towel to help with stretching or for a killer arm workout. Looking for a leg challenge? On a smooth floor, assume the plank position with a small towel under each of your feet. Then, in a very slow and controlled manner, try gliding your legs apart and then back together again. Feel the burn — just remember to take it slow and be careful!
A sturdy chair without wheels can make an excellent addition to your workout routine, whether you’re trying to perfect your squats or practice some leg raises. Throw a second chair into the mix and practice some tricep dips, positioning yourself in-between both chairs. With a chair workout, you’ll certainly get your share of strength, cardio, and flexibility training.
Wall or Countertop
Walls provide stability when you’re practicing some stretching or working your quads and glutes. For example, wall sits are a great exercise that allows you to feel the burn. You can also strengthen your arms and chest by practicing several sets of countertop push-ups. These are great activities to sneak in while you’re waiting for water to boil or the oven to pre-heat. See, what we mean by the endless convenience home workouts hold?
