Doing exercises at home
If you want to stay in shape but do not want to join a gym, you can exercise at home.
5 Fitness Items
An effective fitness program has five components, each of which you can do at home:
- Warm-up exercises.
- Aerobic exercise or also known as cardio exercise.
- Strength and resistance exercises.
- Exercises that increase flexibility.
- Relaxation exercises.
- Warm-up exercises
You can warm up by walking outside, on a treadmill, or on a stationary bike at home.
You can follow a video to do cardio exercises correctly and stimulate your heart and blood vessels. Skipping rope may also work well in this case.
Strength and resistance exercises
This part is very simple. Squats, chest presses and abdominal exercises can be practiced. Exercises can also be done with small dumbbells or light weights.
Exercises that increase flexibility
You can increase your flexibility by doing yoga and stretching exercises.
Cool-down exercises are somewhat similar to warm-up exercises. The goal is to restore the heart rate to a normal, resting position.
