When working out at home, there are many effective ways that you can build strength and muscle without investing a heavy dumbbells, weight bars, and kettlebells. While these are remarkably effective at helping you reach your fitness goals, they can be expensive and dangerous if used improperly.
The COVID-19 crisis has made working out at home more of a necessity than just an alternative to going to the gym. With lockdowns in place and social distancing guidelines being enforced, most gyms and fitness centres are closed. This can make it more difficult than ever to stay in shape and avoid the dreaded COVID-19 weight gain.
As lockdown measures begin to lift, you may find that you’re still in a groggy and lethargic state from staying at home. This feeling of exhaustion is completely understandable – the last few months have taken a physical and mental toll as we adapt to a new normal. Furthermore, studies show that the anxiety, stress and information overload from the lockdown can cause fatigue and tiredness.
With routines in disarray and an unexplainable feeling of lockdown lethargy, it can be so hard to maintain your fitness levels or to keep striving towards any fitness goals you had before lockdown. This is especially true when you’re used to working out at the gym or with a group of friends. So, how can you stay motivated to keep moving and working up a sweat when you’re stuck inside the confines of home?
