So, here are my top tips to stay active in quarantine.
1. Body weight workouts
The best thing about body weight exercises is that the options are limitless. You don’t need any equipment, you need very little space and you can make them as low-intensity or high-intensity as you please.
Here is an example of a body weight cardio workout that you can do in your living room:
- Mountain Climbers
- Shoulder Taps
- Split Lunge Jumps
- Squat Jumps
- Alternating Leg Lowers
I like to do 40 seconds of each exercise with 20 seconds of rest in between. Aim for 4 rounds for a solid 28 minute workout.
2. Online training programs
Online training programs are awesome if you are trying to build or maintain your fitness at home. Good online programs from qualified professionals will provide structure and ensure you are able to continue to progress no matter your goal.
Spending longer than usual at home often means more couch time, working from bed and far less physical activity throughout the day. Ensuring you are regularly taking the time to get up, move around, have a big stretch and ensure you’re not falling into poor posture habits is key to prevent aches, pains and injuries.
4. Be open minded and get creative
I always tell my 28ers to focus on what you can do and not what you can’t. There are plenty of brilliant online programs and resources to help you keep moving at home. Full body HIIT workouts (like my program), at-home yoga or pilates and even dance cardio are just some things to try to keep you active, healthy and sane during quarantine.
Stay strong, stay healthy, stay safe and stay active.
