Q:

Tone-up Tuesday❤️

Hello beauties..Let's talk about how to get fit at home....

 

Spending lots of money on a gym membership is not the only way to get fit; a great workout is also possible in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a little bit of time and space to yourself, and a basic workout plan. And even if you miss a day or two, there are plenty of ways to sneak fitness into your daily life....?

 

1-Always warm up. Warming up increases the blood flow to your muscles, improving mobility and reducing the risk of injury..Do jumping jacks, leg and arm circles, or dance to music to loosen up..

 

2-Do some dynamic stretching- As opposed to static stretching, where you hold a stretch for several seconds, dynamic stretching is done through slow, controlled movements. Studies suggest dynamic movement is best to do after your warm-up and before the main part of your workout. Aim for several repetitions of 30 seconds each.

Lift your knees high or kick them out straight in front as you walk. For a spine stretch, twist your upper body in the direction of the leg (i.e., right leg up, twist to the right)

 

3-Include a cardiovascular segment- This is also known as the aerobic part of your workout, during which your heart rate should increase. Beginners should try for 30 minutes of cardiovascular workout for a minimum of 3 times a week..

 

4-Do resistance exercises- These exercises build strength. Aim to do resistance exercises 20 to 30 minutes 3 times a week; a good goal is to do 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions of each exercise. Try to include strengthening for all the muscle groups. There are hundreds of exercises out there, but here are a few to get you started..

 

5- Stretch- Now's the moment for static stretching. Try to do at least 3 15-minute sessions per week. Stretching is a great stress reliever. Remember, though: breathe, don't bounce, as you hold a stretch. Try to hold positions for 30 seconds. Stretching should never hurt! Go gently!!

 

6- Cool down. Your cool-down segment should be similar to the warm-up - a short, easy walk, jog or cycle that lowers the heart rate.....????
