3 Ways to Spice Up Your Home Workout Routine

Most gym-goers around the country are finding themselves in a frustrating situation right about now. With gyms closed, workouts can become difficult and home workouts can become repetitive and boring. Most of us are used to big authentic clubs with every piece of equipment at our fingertips to now being sequestered to our kitchens, garages, and living rooms. Despite this fact, you can still achieve a very challenging and successful workout. Below are three ways to spice up your home workout routine, making it more enjoyable and worthwhile:

Use Your Surroundings. No gym equipment, no problem! Look around your home and try to find heavy objects, household items, or furniture to incorporate in your workouts! Did you know that a gallon water weighs about eight and a half pounds? That sounds like a great alternative to a dumbbell, if you ask me! Ever considered stuffing a backpack with heavy objects and strapping around your back for weighted workouts? These tips will change your home workout routine for good and provide you with a proper pump!

Utilize Your Neighborhood. If you are lucky enough to live in the hills, or even on a flat lands, you can use your new knowledge of a weighted backpack and go on walks or jogs around your neighborhood. You can also consider buying a weighted vest! This will give you a killer leg and cardio workout, especially with those living in hill-top neighborhoods. You can also incorporate lunge squats, punches, and side steps in your neighborhood cardio workout!

Include Isometric Workouts. The term isometric refers to a type of exercise that helps maintain strength. During isometric exercises, the muscle doesn’t noticeably change length and the affected joint doesn’t move. Our favorite type of isometric workout is a plank. You can spice up your isometric home workout by choosing a wall sit, side bridge, or various yoga poses. Yoga incorporates many isometric exercises such as tree pose and static lunge and it is an incredible home workout that lets your mind escape and sets your intentions for the day ahead.

With hard times like these, it is crucial to keep up with your home workout routine daily and sticking to it. We can understand how home workout can be repetitive and boring, which is why we hope this list has helped you brainstorm and think of some new ideas to spice up your routine! A consistent workout schedule will not only improve your health and physical shape, but also your mental wellbeing.
