5 Easy Exercises to Do at Home When You Aren’t Able to Go to a Gym

Winter has arrived; it’s cold outside and you don’t feel like going to the gym. Here are 5 easy exercises you can do at home to keep you in shape and warm up your body.

*Each exercise should be done 3 times for 15 reps.

The squat

Stand with your legs just a little wider than hip-width apart – you want to make sure your knees are wide and in line with your toes – and sit down, and then stand up again squeezing your glutes at the top.

The lunge

Stand with one leg back and you want to bend the back leg and go up and down holding the core with each rep.

The plank

A great core exercise. On a comfortable surface, go down on your elbows, straighten your legs and engage the abs and glutes and stay for 30 secs-1 minute.

The push-up

You can do it on your knees or toes. Keep the abs engaged and bend the elbows and go down with the chest to the floor. Then push up again through the hands and chest.

The bridge

Lie on your back, knees bent and feet firmly on the floor, then squeeze your glutes and bring the hips up and down.
