Here at Genesee Nutrition, we fully believe that achieving your best self is attainable for everyone, and we’re here to help! While it’s safe to say that many of our plans and activities (worldwide) have been cancelled, postponed, or reconfigured due to COVID-19, this doesn’t mean that your quest for health and fitness has to be put on the back burner. In fact, this is actually the perfect time to focus our energies on looking within — figuring out what works for us and what doesn’t. Thankfully, fitness isn’t only confined to public gyms; there are ways to utilize your home resources/spaces to make the most out of your daily routine.
Our team is committed to bringing you natural hemp extract-infused energy products and providing you with the appropriate resources to get the most out of your body’s potential. Keep reading as we talk about some choice at-home workouts to get you feeling fit, energized, and ready to take on any obstacle.
First Things First: Stretching
We cannot stress enough how important it is to make sure you are stretching properly before beginning any workout. All it takes is one awkward move to set your fitness back, so be sure to to give your arms, neck, shoulders, legs, calves, and other important joints a good stretch. Your body will thank you!
Workout Tip #1: Cardio
Desiring to “Feel the Burn”? Well, a good cardio workout can get your blood pumping without the use of any weights. And, while weight training has its own merits, a cardio workout such as the full body cardio and four minute burnout is ideal to get your stamina up while also taxing your abs. By implementing jumping jacks, bicycle crunches, squat pulses, inchworms, and forearm planks, you’ll surely be getting a great bodily jolt all within the privacy of your own home.
Workout Tip #2: Abs
We all want that perfect 6-pack when it comes to our abs, however, getting there is trickier than we may think. Maintaining the drive to keep going with your workout routine depends much on how effective and fun you make your exercises. Starting your at-home ab workout is easy! With techniques such as side hip bridges, reverse crunches, air chops, shoulder taps, and more, you’ll be feeling the changes in no time.
Workout Tip #3: Arms
Using weights at the gym isn’t the only effective way to build strong, great-looking arms. Why not use your own body to help you? Whether you’re working on your biceps, triceps, or forearms, you can certainly get to your fitness goals — all without ever stepping outside of your house! With techniques such as bodyweight dips, the crab walk, press-ups, body-ups, and incline pushups in your arsenal, your arms will be looking stronger before you know it.
Workout Tip #4: Legs
Focusing on our legs may seem like a daunting task at first, but the importance of having strong leg muscles cannot be overstated. Footwork and stamina is crucial to any activity, whether in sports, or simply getting around in our daily lives. Why not give yourself a “leg-up”, the natural way? At home, and without any weights, you can effectively use air squats, hip bridges, reverse lunges, single-leg deadlifts, and more to get your legs feeling strong, limber, and looking great.
Workout Tip #5: Back
A strong, healthy back is undoubtedly one of the things that helps your body achieve its potential, and a weak, unhealthy back can be disastrous in our youth and will get much worse later on in life. Avoid discomfort! You can easily take care of your back at home with the help of such great techniques as hip hinge holds and hollow holds (along with some workouts using a dumbbell).
