Technology has provided humanity with a lot of conveniences such as minimizing menial labor, like robots in factories, vacuums, remote-controlled appliances and a lot more, which limits people’s physical activities and movements. Aside from this, most people simply don’t have the time or luxury of dropping by the gym and burning of some calories and flexing their bones.
Discussed here are daily home workout routines that anyone can do in the comforts of their own abode. It requires no gym, no equipment whatsoever, but with proven results.
To start off, you must construct a plan, a layout of the daily activities that you would follow. The main thing to remember is that you have to make sure that you would be able to stick to that plan 100%. It’s important because every time you set a task and you’re not able to meet it, it pulls down on your morale and lowers your confidence, unlike if you set realistic goals and you’re able to finish them, you can gain a sense of accomplishment and inspire you to keep on working out.
In 20 minutes, either in the morning or in the evening, you can create your own fitness regime. Of course you should always be certain that you’re properly warmed up before you begin. You can also play some upbeat music to keep you invigorated and to help make that 20 minutes run by very fast.
First, work on the upper torso. With this, you can stimulate the blood in the middle section of the body before tackling the lower torso and lessen the chances of getting ‘sleeping muscles’. Perform some table push-ups for about 2 minutes to get the blood pumping to the extremities of your upper body. This can also minimize sagging arms people get from aging. Just do however many you can in two minutes and do not force yourself too much.
However, you should keep track of its count everyday and make sure that it’s consistently increasing. Next you should work on your midsection. Try some curl-ups, partial or full, or sit-ups, whichever you’re more comfortable with. The main thing is to be able to make your abdominal muscles and your back at work. Do this for about 4 minutes and also keep track of the count.
To warm up your thigh region, do some forward lunges, where you thrust forward with one leg while keeping your back straight. Start of with a minute for each leg for about 4 minutes. Then, follow up with arm divers. You do this by stretching out both arms in front of you while you’re in upright or starting position for the lunge and make them converge or join up in the middle as if you were going to dive in a pool and you drop your hips downward instead of forward. You do this for about a minute a leg as well and make it last for about 4 minutes too.
When it’s time to really get your blood pumping, perform jumping jacks for about three minutes and follow up with a jog in place for another three minutes. After you complete your 20-minute routine, be sure to cool down your body by doing some stretching to make sure that you don’t get muscle aches later on.
It takes a great amount of discipline and determination to be able to stick to daily home work out plans since there are a lot of distractions and excuses that can be used to put them off, but it is always handy to use daily home workout routines. This says that you don’t need to stay in the gym for hours and pay for their equipment because you can simply develop your own strategy for exercising at home.
