Constantly browsing through social media channels and staying at home can be boring and mentally draining. But staying home during this time is a critical intervention to reduce harm from the spread of the COVID-19 in our community.
So we have prepared some home workouts which you can try out to keep your body and your mind in the right direction.

Strength Home Workout

Strength training is an inevitable part of a training plan. Irrelevant of your fitness levels, strength training allows an individual to prevent injuries and maximize performance. With the unavailable access to the gyms, strength training can be done at home. Many strength training exercises can be done in the comfort and privacy of your home, using just your body weight or basic low-cost equipment’s. Just you, your mindset, your living room and you are good to go.

Working out at home provides quite a few benefits.

  • Working out indoors keeps you away from all the distractions.
  • Keeps you away from groups.
  • Training indoors helps you manage time better.

Strength training (also known as weight training or resistance training) is a type of physical exercise which uses resistance to oppose the force generated by muscles through concentric and eccentric contractions. Strength training benefits the body in numerous ways. It is an effective method for burning the body fat. Practicing regular physical activity is essential to reducing muscle loss and maintaining strength as you age.

So, if you’re new to this type of training, you can take it slow and get used to it.

Moderate exercise can provide antioxidant protection and promote blood flow, which can protect your skin and delay signs of aging. Regular physical activity, regardless of whether it is aerobic or a combination of aerobic and resistance training, can help you sleep better and feel more energized during the day.  If you are looking to lose weight, we recommend you consult a qualified nutritionist and work a diet plan around your exercises.
