Make Your Home Workout As Good As Any Gym Workout
Many of us make resolutions each year committing to exercising. But how many make it through the first month without giving up on our workout plans?
And how much of that is because we think of gym membership as a fix-it-all option for exercising? If you want to bulk up or lose weight but do not have the time or the money or both to hit the gym five days a week, then a home workout might be the solution you have looking for. The following details will make it easier to work out from home.
Schedule it, same as a gym workout
The best way to make working out from home work for you is to make time for it in your schedule. Sure, you have to balance between all your chores and your job, but make a workout a priority as you make your to-do list for the week. If you are moving from a gym scene to the home scene, the best thing to do would be to dedicate the time you went to the gym to your new home workout regime.
Get the equipment you need, and if you can’t, improvise
Nothing makes it more worthwhile to work out from home than the fun factor that comes with it. You work out on your schedule and, get this, you can work out with anything. In the gym, you have equipment which might be present at home. Before starting your workout, grab a mat, put on professionally-fitted workout shoes and the workout clothes you need (no cotton please). Need weights but have no dumbbells in sight? There are always the cans in the kitchen cabinet. Once you have the equipment, you’re ready to begin.
Record it all
Put down everything from the periods you worked out, the workouts you did, their effectiveness (your measurements will tell you that) and note when you need to switch things up. Ensure your workouts cover a warm-up and cool-down session. Keeping records keeps you motivated and accountable for your home workouts.
