Exercise equipment is great at the gym, but if you don’t want to shell out the money for at-home workouts, you can just make your own. There are a bunch of products already in your home that can double as exercise equipment. See if you have these three everyday items for getting your sweat on in your home gym.
Instead of: handheld weights
Use: canned tomatoes. Soup or other dense canned foods may not be skinny in the middle like dumbbells, but the ridges on the side will help keep your grip. Choose two of the same weight to work your arms.
How: use canned food in place of any handheld weight exercise you would do for your shoulders, biceps, or triceps. If you have options in your pantry, use the lightest cans for your shoulders and triceps while using the heavy set for biceps.
Instead of: resistance band.
Use: the tie from your bathrobe. Many exercise classes are swapping out resistance bands for cloth karate ropes. A bathrobe tie works just as well as its black-belt counterpart.
How: this waist tie is great for stretching your legs. Use it while lying on your back to stretch your hamstrings, IT band, or calves by simply extending one leg into the air and hooking the strap around the sole of your foot. This is also a unique weapon for ab work. Try ab exercises where your legs are suspended out in front of you and your back is off the ground. You can loop the belt around one or both of your legs for more support and to take the strain out of your neck.
Wanting flat abs is a seasonless pursuit. While we may ramp up the action in the Summer, wearing a bikini isn’t the only reason to want flat abs. So if bundling up isn’t deterring you from wanting to look your best for the holidays, here are five daily must dos to get flat abs!
I don’t think I’ve ever met a runner who doesn’t suffer from tight hips, hamstrings, or a lower back. The receptive movements and strengthening aspect of running can cause tight muscles that need extra attention. Of course you should never skip the stretching session after a run, but here are three lower-body stretches you should do every day – even on the days you don’t run.
What it stretches: sides of the hips and hip flexors
How to do it:
- Come into a lunge position with the right foot forward and the left leg extended behind you, toes relaxed. Make sure there’s enough distance between your feet so your front knee is at a 90-degree angle. Lower your hands to the floor to the left of your right foot.
- Keep your front foot where it is and slowly lower your right knee outward, so you’re resting on the outside of your right flexed foot. Keep your arms straight, pressing your chest forward just like in Upward Facing Dog; this will help encourage your hips to lower, increasing the stretch.
- Gaze forward and enjoy Open Lizard for 30 seconds and then switch sides.
Keep reading to find out how to do the above stretch and one more that will target your hamstrings.
