Is home fitness for everyone?
If you’re trying to look better and feel better, home fitness is for you. It doesn’t matter what your age is or how much you can exercise, you should focus on putting together a plan with three important components if you want to see results. Start off with cardio, then do some strength training exercises and then finish it with stretching to cool down.
To do cardio you don’t need to use machines or have huge space in your home. You should go for morning jogs or may be use a treadmill or skip or engage yourself in various household chores. So get a treadmill or go for jogs, gliders and rowers.
Strength training can be done using various movements done by body weight and or getting some weights and using them. To make sure your home fitness is effective, have a dedicated session of weights at least once a week. Body weight resistance exercises include squats, push-ups for basic workout or for intense once you could make use of a weighted vest or a pull up bar. Use barbells or weights and do a flat bench workout. If you don’t have much space and want to invest less then get adjustable dumbbells. Include variety in your schedule to get maximum benefits of strength work out.
Stretching is another important area that one must not ignore. When do stretching exercises at the end of your workout program or simply keep one day for stretching exercise, you prepare your body to get relaxed and cool down for the next day’s work out. Include yoga in your stretching program for maximum results.
Diet and Other Areas to Consider:
Having nutritious food is an essential component of home fitness and when implemented properly can help you get lots of energy and also relieve you from stress. Plan your diets weekly. Have a combination of small meals and healthy snacks every day. Include lean meat, vegetable, fruits in every meal to get good amount of required nutrients. Don’t eat bad snacks and ruin your diet plan.
Drinking enough water helps in effective weight loss and lack of it can bring down the performance of your workout plans. Drink water before, during and after the workout and also throughout the day. Drinking lots of water helps in various processes of the body and helps them in functioning properly.
Rest is important to lose weight too. It allows the body to repair itself for the next workout program. Workout only five days a week and have a rest day after two or three days of workout. Rest replenishes energy and also fixes damaged tissues which help in getting stronger and bigger muscles. Sleep at least for seven hours a day.
A home fitness will give you same results just like a commercial gym. If you’re focused you can achieve your goals even at home.
