In these difficult times, many of us have sacrificed our lifestyle to keep our communities, families, and ourselves safe. One of the things we should not give up is our own health. Although most of us are not comfortable risking going to the gym and many gyms are temporarily closed, we can still get a workout in every day. The best part is that we can do these workouts while binge-watching all of our favorite shows. Consider moving your workout from the gym to in front of your Roku with these great workouts:
Ever noticed how gyms always have televisions placed right by the cardio equipment? That’s because watching TV while doing cardio decreases boredom and provides a distraction from discomfort. Watching television while you do cardio can actually help you work out at a greater intensity and for a longer time, getting you closer to your fitness goals. If you have a treadmill, a stationary bike, or an elliptical, it’s time to dust it off and move it in front of your TV. If not, try doing jumping jacks, running in place, or even dancing!
2. Weight Training
Weight training is a great at-home workout. Weights are extremely affordable—you can get a basic set of hand weights for less than $10. They can be integrated right into your favorite workout routine, but they can also be used while you are just sitting on the couch streaming a new show. If you don’t have weights, there are some easy household items you can use instead, such as soda cans, bags of dry rice or beans, and bottles of laundry detergent. Look around your house and you’ll be surprised what you can find to use for weight training.
3. Circuit Training
Circuit training is the perfect home workout. It doesn’t require a lot of equipment, and it gets you in shape fast. Circuit training is a great workout to do while watching your favorite shows. You don’t have to take your eyes off the screen for some of the best circuit workouts like lunges, squats, and crunches. My online program Take Back Your Life teaches you five different circuit training workouts you can do anywhere, including in front of your favorite show.
While you’re at home, you shouldn’t neglect your nutrition as well. Following and sticking to a healthy and well-balanced nutrition plan will boost your mind and body, which is something we all need more than ever these days. Bright, colorful, and natural foods will leave you feeling equally bright, colorful, and naturally good!
I know that in these unprecedented times, it’s hard to stay motivated to keep active. However, working out is really important right now. Working out boosts the immune system to help ward off illness, and it releases endorphins that can help us manage stress and anxiety. It’s a critical component of self-care because it keeps us strong physically and mentally, so we can overcome any challenge we face. So get up, get moving, and get active, which is completely possible even if you’re just spending your day binge-watching Netflix!
