Bummed by the fact that you can’t go to the gym? Here are a few workouts that you can do at home without any equipment.
Start in a plank position—your body should be aligned from head to ankles. Gradually lower your body toward the floor, pulling one knee toward your elbow.
Return to the starting position and repeat with the other leg. Continue to do 15 to 20 reps in succession.
Stand upright with your feet shoulder-width apart. Take one step forward into a split stance.
Squat down and jump into the air as high as you can, pushing up from the balls of your feet. Switch legs midair and land in the opposite stance. Do 5 reps.
Stand with your back against a wall. Lower to a seated position—your thighs should be parallel to the floor.
Keep your arms at your sides. Hold the seated position for at least 20 seconds before rising back up to the starting position.
Start on your right side with your feet together. Your right arm should be directly under your shoulder.
Contract your abdominal muscles and raise your hips while exhaling. Your torso should be straight in line. Hold this position without letting your hips drop and repeat on the left side.
Start in a plank position. Make sure that your shoulders are pulled down and back—your core should also be tight.
With your elbows in a 45-degree angle to your body, bend them and lower your body until it nearly touches the floor.
Pause and push yourself back up. Focus on keeping your elbows close while you’re moving. Complete 5 sets.
Lie on the floor with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor. Squeeze your glutes and push through your heels to raise your hips up.
Hold the position for five seconds and repeat. Do not pull yourself up using your lower back.
As you can see, there are a number of home workouts that you can do while you’re under quarantine. What better way to spend time than by improving your body, right?
