Great Ideas for Excercising at Home

55 Having a gym membership these days can be to expensive for some household budgets so I was trying to find great exercise tips you can do at home and still burn a few calories. Below is some diagrams of exercises you can do at home with full demonstrations. But there are also exercise ideas for things you can do from your home with little to no equipment to buy.

1-Walking: this is the easiest form of exercise that you can do from your home. Get outside in nature and go for a long walk, and check out the scenery and meet a few neighbors in the process. Of course it is cold outside or raining you can still work out from home like I do by making laps inside your home. When the weather is bad outside I will make like a walking track through my kitchen, dining and living room and back and I will just keep walking it over and over again. Great way to still be active while the weather outside is not cooperating.

2-Stairs: Do you have a set of stairs in your house or maybe even a few stairs outside of your home to get in your front door. You can use these stairs to get a good workout, by going up and down them like you are on a stair climbing machine.

3-Pushups: While pushups may not be an ideal form of exercise for everyone remember there are many ways to adjust a pushup to fit your body type and your exercise routine. If you cannot get down on your knees you can push off of a wall with your hands and do a mock push up that way. There are many ways you can change this up to fit your fitness levels.

4-Jumpin Jacks: Back in elementary school I remember these were one of my favorites to do as a kid, but they can also be a great way for you to work on your cardio at home while not needing to use any exercise equipment.

5-Leg Lifts-These are great way to really stretch out your lower body and also work on your strength in your legs. If you have a hard time with certain exercises remember you can change this exercise up to suite your needs, for example you could try bending your legs slightly to make it easier.

6-Crunches: As many of you know crunches are like the holy grail to work on your core muscle area your abs. And there as many different versions of doing a good crunch that you can find one that will suite your fitness level.

7-Jogging In Place – Jogging is a great exercise for your heart. You can jog in place at home while watching TV or listening to music. The only equipment you will require is a good pair of shoes, to eliminate any stress to your legs.

8-Squats – These are wonderful exercises for your legs and buttocks. You can even just try these by sitting and standing up again from a regular chair, if you’re finding them to be too difficult. As long as you’re able to do a few repetitions, you will be providing some benefit to your body.
