The gym can be expensive and many people sign up but rarely visit, while some people simply prefer home workouts.
Working out at home has its advantages, for instance you wont have to wait to use your favourite machine, nor will you have all the strangers looking at your body or your form.
Home workouts can be just as effective with many different exercises available without the expense of buying your own gym equipment.
Here are a small sample of some simple exercises you can perform at home for a killer body.
Simple home exercise #1: The push up
Push ups have long been used both in home workouts and at the gym, with both men and women choosing this exercise as a form of building muscle and getting into shape.
You don’t need to do hundreds every day to see results but they are a great way to tone up without expensive equipment and loads of floor space.
Simple home exercise #2: Sit ups
Sit ups or crunches are a great way to strengthen your core (stomach and back). Just remember you are not going to be able to see your six pack if your diet is not up to scratch.
Simple home exercise #3: Yoga
Yoga is a great form of exercise for the home as it takes up minimum room and can be both fun and relaxing. Helping to rid your body and mind of the stresses of everyday life.
Simple home exercise #4: Stationary bike
Although we mentioned earlier how you wont need to buy any equipment, well you can certainly get a good workout without expensive equipment.
However, one piece of equipment you may think about buying is a stationary bike, which will enable you to burn off calories even while you are in front of the TV watching your favourite show.
There are loads of exercises you could perform in the comfort of your own home, it is best that you experiment to see what works best for you.
Never stick to the same routine as your body will adapt. Change it now and again to give yourself the best results possible.
Just remember exercise is just part of the weight loss equation. Your diet will need work if you want to see real changes to the scale.
Certainly cutting back on those takeaways and junk food will help, but think about adding more fresh fruit and vegetables to your daily diet.
Lean protein is essential for a healthy diet too, and plenty of water to help keep your cravings at bay and to flush out those toxins.
