Spending your days at home? Fitness can be a great way to blow off some steam during times of stress and uncertainty.
However, with public places being closed we all have to adapt to doing things a bit differently. For gym-goers and fitness enthusiasts this means navigating unchartered territory.
Unless you have a gym in your home, your fitness routine will drastically change. To many, this is may be frustrating. We see it as an opportunity!
This is your chance to revamp your old style. A new routine can help you discover things about your body. New form… Better flexibility… The power of meditation and cardio…
There is so much to be accomplished and learned from working out at home. Knowledge is power, use these tips below to help you crush your at home workouts!
Sustain Good Nutrition…
Nutrition is still a key element to fitness, even at home. Your body needs hydration along with vitamins, minerals and protein for performance.
In addition to dieting, supplementation can help you fill in the gaps. Multivitamins for Athletes are great for covering your bases. Your Pre Workout and Post Workout regimen is still as important as before.
We also recommend Thermogenics & CLA to set your workout on fire. This can help you match that same intensity you had while working out with your gym buddies!
Dedicate Some Space…
This is a crucial part of the process. If you can’t fully extend your body or stand firmly on the ground, you won’t be productive.
Designate a comfortable area as your “fitness space.” You may have to make some adjustments and move things around.
Dress the Part!
Wear your normal athletic outfit. If you’re wearing your lazy outfit, your workout will be lazy…
Dress like you’re still trying to impress at the gym. Your mind will instantly get back into “work mode” and you can be motivated.
Lose the Distractions…
Block out all potential distractions from the room. This means all forms of media, people and work that will keep you from staying motivated.
Do your Homework…
This is a learning experience. Any time you’re new to something you should take notes. Watching videos and reading articles can help you to learn:
- Unique Workouts
- Better Form
- Stronger Focus
- Mind/Body Connection
- Goal Orientation
