5 Easy Home Workouts

Are you too lazy to follow your gym routine? Do you think heavy lifting is too tough for you? Worry no more because there is an easy way out for everyone who needs to keep their health and body fit. Exercise is essential for us to let every part of the bodywork without any dysfunction. For some people, it does not always have to be a heavy work out session that eventually stresses them out at the end of the day. But for those who need to gain some muscles, it becomes necessary to go to the gym and do some heavy exercise. If you don’t have enough time to go to the gym, there are home workout options you can follow. You can plan a daily schedule by keeping aside some time to exercise and do it right in your home.

Some of the easy home workouts you can do every day include:

Body weight squat

By standing tall and spreading your feet a bit wider than your shoulder, you can keep your arms straight right in front of your body at shoulder length. You can do this exercise by keeping your arms parallel to the floor, your torso straight and your lower back a bit arched. Then you have to brace the abs by lowering your body as much as you can and then push your hips by bending the knees. Now try to get back to the original position and repeat this exercise for at least 12 to 20 times a day.

Inclining pushups

First keep your hand on a raised platform like a box, ottoman, a bench or even on the stairs. Keep your body straight and firm so that it forms a straight line. Your upper arm should dip beneath the elbows. Now try to push you up and then come back to the original position. Also, make sure you repeat this process at least 10-15 times a day for the best results.

Raising the hip

Raising your hip may seem like an easy job to do, but you need to lie on a flat surface by keeping your knees bent and placing your feet flat on the floor. You can lift yourself up just with your elbows and your feet facing sideward.  Do it at least 10 times a day.

Y Raise

You have to lay on a flat surface with your body resting on the floor and then slowly raise yourself with your arms and the tip of your feet with your thumb facing up. Do this 8 to 12 times a day.

Side Plank

This is just like raising the hip exercise, except you need to fold your legs, keep your one arm on the hip and raise your upper body with just your elbows and forearm. Stay in this position for at least 25 to 30 minutes to get the best results.
