Life can get busy, and oftentimes we find ourselves busy going to work, school or just living our daily lives. This can make eating healthy challenging not mention going to a gym to exercise. With my busy schedule I found it difficult to go to the gym on a consistent basis. Therefore when I’m at home for an extending period of time I like to exercise. These can be done anywhere, anytime to help us get in shape. Here are seven exercises anyone can do at home.
- Chair dips:
Where there’s a chair, there’s a way! Chair dips are great for strengthening your triceps and can be done just about anywhere. Like other exercises, there are varying techniques that can either increase or decrease resistance.
Because you’re using your own body weight, lunges both strengthen your lower body and increase overall flexibility. Lunges can be done anywhere: You can lunge when you walk to the kitchen; you can lunge to the driveway as you get the paper in the morning, and you can even lunge when you walk from your desk to the water cooler at work.
- Hip Raise:
Lie on your back on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Place your arms out to your sides at a 45-degree angle, your palms facing up. Now try to make your tummy as skinny as possible and hold it that way—this gives you a tight core—while breathing normally.
- Side Plank:
Lie on your right side with your knees straight. Prop your upper body on your right elbow and forearm, which should be directly below your right shoulder. Place your left hand on your left hip.
The most high-intensity exercise on this list, burpees are often referred to as the cornerstone to any workout because they are guaranteed to produce results. This aerobic exercise helps strengthen your entire body by utilizing almost every muscle group. There are many different ways to perform a burpee, but the easiest one is quite possibly the best. As with every other exercise, proper form is a must.
