These are quite scary and uncertain times we are living in and our heart goes out to those directly affected by the coronavirus.
If you are one of the many gym-goers looking for ways to keep fit without leaving the house due to covid-19, here are five exercises for your at home workouts during self-isolation..
Whether you’re already working from home or the prospect of being forced to work from home is looming – it’s likely that you’re normal routine will be disrupted for the foreseeable future and your fitness goals could take a serious hit.
If this situation has you worried about the impact on your physical and mental health while practicing social distancing, avoiding public transport, or no being able to make it to your usual group fitness classes because gyms have closed, we completely understand.
Working from home can create extra stress, and this global situation is not making it any easier, but keeping your body fit and healthy is so important during tough times and can even help with the mental health impacts of being isolated for long periods.
Even short bursts of exercise can help release pent up energy, relieve stress, loneliness and improve your mood and not too mention boost your immune system.
The Gravotonics Aerial Yoga Swing & Exercise System!
Today we want to share with you a quick and simple over all workout that you can do without having to leave your house!
Here are 5 simple exercises for your at home workout from our Aerial Fitness Workout Video:
The chest press works your chest muscles, shoulders, and triceps. If you don’t have a yoga swing, this closely mimics the dumbbell chest press, so dumbbells can be used, or you can just do push ups.
The lateral pull, similar to the lat. pulldown, is a compound exercise that works some shoulder muscles and muscles through the back – latissimus dorsi in particular, making it a staple in many strength-training routines.
Suspended Lunges (Bulgarian split squat)
Lunges work the quads, hamstrings and glutes which is so important for over all strength and well-being. Using the swing also requires a lot more stabilization, activating the small pelvis stabilizing muscles and also activates the core muscles such as your abs.
Squats are a key exercise that everyone should do. Squats primarily work the quads, glutes, hamstrings, as well as the adductors and calves.
You can do simple air squats without the swing, however with it you can really angle your body to build resistance and engage your core muscles, shoulders, upper back, and chest muscles as well.
A great alternative to crunches, planks can help improve core strength and stability. Planks require your arms, your legs, your abs and more, making them an all-encompassing workout and a great way to finish holding for 30 secs to a minute. You can use the couch to elevate your legs if not the swing.
We really hope this at home workout is beneficial for you during self-isolation while we are all in lock down!
Most of these resistance exercises can be done without any props however if you want to spice things up a bit, for a limited time, we are offering FREE World-Wide Postage on our Yoga Swings, Aerial Hammocks and 20% OFF our downloadable Exercise Video!
