Home-workouts are a great way to keep up with your training regime when you find yourself stuck indoors – and can be just as effective as an equipment-fuelled workout at the gym
The Wordrobe spoke with team Grenade® to give you tips to keep your body moving and your mind focused – whether you’re an avid gym bunny or a complete beginner.
• Invest in some key pieces of equipment to really enhance your home-workout sessions – whether it’s a kettlebell, skipping rope or resistance band, get your hands on the little bit of kit you’ll need for your type of workout.
• Make the most of your environment by using furniture where you can to assist your training – it could be a chair to help you hold your balance, the stairs for some simple step ups, or the floor for those push-ups!
• Make sure your exercise space is clean and tidy as well removing potential hazards and keep your head clear – a bit of laundry can even count as a part of your workout if you include some lunges and squats in there too!
