No Need To Go To The Gym, You Can Build Your Muscles At Home!
Having great body and muscles sometimes makes a person more confident for who they are. This is the reason why there are lots of people who go to the gym not minding the money they have to pay just to get the body shape and structure they want.
Here are some of the workouts you can do at home without the expense of going to the gym.
1. Work your upper body and core
• Do push ups
This is a great workout for your arms and chest. Make sure your form is good to make the most out of it. There are two kinds of push-ups : incline push-ups and decline push-ups. Incline push-ups works out your upper muscles. Do this by positioning your arms higher than your feet and making sure your spine is straight and then perform the up and down of your body like the normal push up. While on the other hand you can do the decline push-ups by putting your feet higher than your arms making your spine straight before starting. Do this repetition in sets of 8 or twelve.
• Do headstands
This act is not for the faint hearted. By doing this you are building a strong shoulder and back. To start, crouch with your back to the wall and plant your hands on the ground while walking your feet slowly up the wall. You can also cheat this kind of workout by placing your feet on a high table with your thighs and torso hanging over the edge enough for you to place your hands on the ground.
• Do planks
This is a great work out for entire core. To do a plank, position yourself like you are doing a push up. However, instead of placing your palms on the ground, use your forearms. Tighten your butt muscles while straightening your spine. Hold to this position for one minute and take a rest.
2. Work your lower body
• Do wall sits
Place your back on the wall for balance like you are sitting on the imaginary chair by bending your knees 90 degrees. Hold to this position for one minute and rest for 30 seconds. Repeat the process as desired.
• Do squats
Put your hands on your hips or straight out in front of you then lower your body down into squat as if you were sitting on a chair. Keep your spine straight and focus on dropping your butt. Do this 10 times and take a short rest. Repeat the process as desired.
• Do donkey kicks
Position your hands and knees on the floor and kick one leg out and up keeping it in 90 degree angle. Do this process in 12 repeats on each leg.
Discipline yourself with eating the right foods for your muscles such as low-fat chocolate milk, fruits, vegetables and meat. Avoid oily foods and drink a lot of water. Create also a work-out plan schedule and stick to it to gain the expected result in a period of time.
