Now that you may be spending far too many hours staying safe indoors, make sure that you have adequate activities to keep your muscles moving and enough calories burning. Grab your yoga exercise mat and add your workout regimen to your routine. It might be easy to quickly slip into the habit of missing your workouts, but once you get things rolling and you feel the energy pumped up, you will definitely make sure you squeeze this into your schedule.
Find a time slot to add the workout to your schedule
Your workout schedule will depend on your preference. If you are a morning person, or a night owl, you may have certain preferences on the best time of the day that your body is perfectly fit for a workout routine. May it be the first thing in the morning when you wake up, or the last activity when evening strikes, it will depend on what you feel is best. What’s most important is that you selected a schedule that will work for you best, and you will stick to it.
Grab your exercise mat and find a spot in your home
Having limited options on where to spend your workout routine outside your home, you must now choose a spot indoors where you can lay out that mat and start crunching with your workout. Make this your constant workout place, so this will set the vibe for your workout scene.
Find the perfect workout moves
This is a good workout if you want to tone your core. Do a forearm plank and hold for one minute. Rest for a moment, then repeat.
You can do this by repeatedly jumping your feet wide while circling the arms overhead, and then back again. No special equipment is needed, so just make sure you are comfortable with your feet by wearing a good pair of shoes.
Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart. Engage your abdominal muscles. Pull your shoulder blades towards each other to open and expand your chest. Bend your knees to push your butt and hips out. In this squat position, make sure your thighs are parallel to the ground. Straighten your legs to release and return to standing.
These are just some of the indoor workouts you can try, but there’s a variety of options out there that you can check what might be best for you.
As with any workout, it’s important for you to cool down. Let your muscles relax and stretch them out. Spend a couple minutes adjusting your breathing while stretching. This easy indoor workout will help you clear your mind and will definitely give you the energy boost that you need.
