Ten Ways To Exercise At Home When You Cant Leave The House
Iso fitness feels.
We're all stuck inside, gyms are closed, and our bodies are beginning to complain.
Here are ten exercise ideas for people in self-isolation who are starting to feel a bit stir crazy!
Let's take it back to your primary school days and get yourself jumping! You just need enough space around you that you won't be hitting anything with your rope, and then you can go for gold. You may need to order a new skipping rope online - but luckily plenty of places are still doing delivery. Once you've got the hang of it, you can tackle some of the jump rope workouts on YouTube.
No Equipment Workouts
First of all, if you've got enough exercises up your sleeve you can do star jumps, squats, crunches and lunges until you're feeling all tired out. However if you need some guidance, there are plenty of home workouts on YouTube that don't need any equipment. Just you and a bit of space!
