13 Tips for Home Fitness
Home exercising and you.
Where, weights and bands to help.
- When home exercising choose a room in your house that can easily be used. Wooden floors can be slippy. Mats can also slip on wooden floors, but tend not to on carpets. Roll up rugs.
- Anywhere where a mat will fit, will be fine.
- Open doors/windows because you can get hot!
- Get your water and weights (if using) ready.
- Are you going to wear trainers, bare feet or yoga socks? Wear what suits you best. A slippy floor may lend itself to bare feet.
- Check your internet will travel outside, if that is your preferred space. Make sure your device is steady. Nobody wants a broken device 🙀 because of wind.
- Working outside is lovely, but can be weather dependent. Rain, wind, cold. Some people love it all!
- Use a thick mat. Sit ups etc are much more comfortable to do and if working outside on the patio then you have a little cushioning.
- Boot Camps using just body weight only are available on-line. Joe Wicks at https://youtu.be/oIfsyYkGMfc. He has free classes.
- Phil at: email@example.com is a great bet. Phil offers lots of on-line classes, with or without weights. These offer community, friendship and he watches to make sure your exercises are safe.
- Muscle helps your immune system to be stronger*. Add weights into your fitness plan. I am going to buy these: https://www.jtxfitness.com/6kg-dumbbell (when back in stock!)
- Bands are also a great idea for training and will help both with rehab and general strength. Working against a resistance will increase your muscle strength. I don’t have these, but looking at the JTX website, they look strong and wide, which is what you need. https://www.jtxfitness.com/fitness-bands-pack
- Remember there will be great days and not so great days so any work out is better than non. No self-berating and aim to do 2/3 a week, you will feel the difference.
