Spicing up your fitness routine is a great way to keep you motivated and get you excited to get up off the couch and get active! Here is a workout routine of 4 simple exercises that will help workout all areas of your body so that you can get a full body workout from the comforts of your home! Check it out:
Planks are super easy workouts that anyone can do, well, anywhere! According to many fitness enthusiasts agree that this exercise is hands down the best all-around body toning exercise out there. Simply rest in a push-up position on your elbows and toes while keeping your body parallel to the ground. Hold this position for your desired amount of time (generally a minute) for a full body workout.
- Squat Jumps
This is a two-in-one leg and cardio workout that is extremely simple. Jump squats are generally used for lower body/leg toning, but it can also get your heart beating for a great cardio exercise as well. Start off in a squatting position, then spring up off the floor and straighten your legs in the air, and finally land once again in a squatting position.
- Jumping Jacks
For full-on cardio, jumping jacks are the simplest, yet highly effective, cardio workout that you can easily do at home! This workout is a sure way to get your heart pumping fast. Just make sure to raise your hands all the way above your head and keep at it for at least one minute to make sure your heart gets started!
For this simple upper body workout, all you will need is a chair! Hold onto the chair’s seat and push yourself forward so that your legs are extended, and your bottom is suspended over the floor. Once you are in this position, bend your arms to drop your hips to the floor and extend them out again like a push-up. Repeat this in two sets of ten reps!
