4 Easy “At Home” Exercises When You Can’t Hit the Gym

Posted by Amina AlTai on

Moving your body everyday is essential for staying well and energized. And it’s great for our brains too. Did you know our brain stops producing neurons around age 30?! That’s alarming considering most women in the U.S. will retire around 62! But we don’t have to be shuffling around in bathrobes, mumbling incoherently just yet. Aerobic exercise has been found not only to stop the loss of neurons, but to help build new neural connections to keep that brain sharp!

Obviously, It’s great for our bodies too. Resistance, strength and weight training keeps bones healthy, while deep stretching prevents injury and improves posture.

What’s more, a study by the journal of labor research, found that people who workout get paid more! Yes, you read that correctly. Workers who exercise more are paid an average of 9 percent more than employees who don’t workout. Not that money is everything, but just saying. 

However, an hour-long trip to the gym, complete with commuting time, can kill your day. Especially if you're trying to go a few times a week. But, that doesn't mean you need to skip workouts altogether. If time and space are you nemesis, these quick, yet effective workouts should be your go-to.  Remember to check with your healthcare provider before beginning a new workout or nutrition plan.

 Do each more for 30 seconds and then repeat the whole series four times:

Option 1:

  • High knees

  • Mermaid crunches

  • Mountain climbers

  • Squats

  • Box jumps

Option 2:

  • Burpees
