Having an ideal and athletic body is certainly everyone’s dream, both men and women. To make it happen, of course you must have a healthy lifestyle; eat regularly, get enough sleep, and exercise diligently. Being able to balance these three things, certainly makes it easy for you to have an ideal and athletic body.
However, what if you are only able to qualify for regular meals and get enough sleep, in a time of busy time so you can’t take the time to exercise? Do not be discouraged. You can do fitness at home as an alternative to achieving an ideal and athletic body shape
Here are the stages of home fitness that you can do to shape the body you crave:
1. Heating (Warm Up)
Before starting training, always warm up first. Why? When warming up, the muscle temperature will increase, blood rich in nutrients and oxygen will flow to the muscle so that it can contract faster and increase muscle strength and speed. Warm up with mild exercises, such as light jogging, light aerobics, jogging in places, and others, until our bodies sweat, and feel hot. More or less takes around 5-15 minutes.
Did you know that heating and stretching are two different things? Stretching is done after you warm up. The goal is to make the muscles more flexible when the muscles are “hot”.
Aerobics is an exercise or exercise that is carried out continuously with the help of music. This exercise is divided into 3 forms, namely:
• Low Impact
It is a low intensity, low impact movement that is done with the help of soft music while doing light footsteps but without lifting legs. Usually, low impact is done by people who have high obesity, beginners, and also old age.
• High Impact
In contrast to low impact, high impact movements are carried out with high intensity. The way to do it is with fast-paced music and accompanied by dynamic movements and loud beats. Usually, high impact exercises are carried out if you are getting used to high intensity exercise.
• Mix Impact
As the name implies, mix impact is a combination of low and high impact training. Mix impact exercises are mostly done because the movements are more varied so they don’t make you tired and bored.
4. Lift the Load
After doing the above exercise, you can do weight training. You can use a tool or just use your own body weight.
5. Cooling (Cooling Down)
After doing all the exercises, don’t forget to cool down, huh! After spending a lot of energy and sweat, the body needs to rest and return to relax. Cool down along with stretching. You can walk for 5-10 minutes, keep quiet and stretch your legs.
Well, that’s all home fitness tips that you can do on the sidelines of your busy life. Besides saving money, you don’t need to take the time to go to the gym again. Good luck!
