Not everyone has the time to spend hours working out at the gym each week but you can still stay in shape. All you need are a few good workouts that you can do at home. There are plenty of ways to get the exercise your body needs to be healthy, even if you don’t own exercise equipment.
Here are three workouts you can do at home to stay in shape:
- Do 10 minute cardio workouts to get your heart rate up. These include everything from dancing to interval training that requires you to rest in-between doing short bursts of intense exercises.
- Walk or go for a jog. Walking and/or jogging regularly will help strengthen your muscles as well as your heart and lungs. The fresh air can improve your mood and combined with a proper diet, going for a walk or jog can help you maintain a healthy weight and tone your body.
- Combine squats, crunches and lunges together for a quick 8 to 10 minute workout that burns fat while toning muscles. These exercises will help firm your thighs, glutes and abs.
If you’re serious about getting in shape, you can achieve amazing results right in your own home. Combining a healthy diet with one or more of the workouts above can do wonders for your health and your waistline.
