My favourite exercise that involves no equipment
It would have to be a squat! They best way to do it is, sit on a chair that isn’t too high and stand up straight and then back to a squat position with your glutes touching the chair, but don’t sit down completely! 2 to 3 sets of 20 – 30 reps throughout the day is a good amount. The squat is an essential primal movement as it engages all the big muscles in the body, covering lots of areas all in one. As lots of people are now working from home, people will find themselves sitting for a quite long time so this move is perfect to maintain your glutes and quads strength as well as other things like your lower back and your core.
One price friendly piece for home workouts
The thing I would recommend most is the Wellness ball by Technogym. It firstly, if you are going to be sitting a lot during the day, helps you to sit more actively by keeping your pelvis and lower back moving and balancing during working hours. On top of this it can also be used for a number of exercises such as crunches, squats, side planks, inverted push-up and many more! If you have the ball and manage to download the Technogym mywellness app, you can scan the QR code on the handle of the ball, which is where I always choose between plenty of strength, balance and stretching exercises, for a quick at home workout.
Home workout advice
In my opinion, the most important thing is to focus on yourself and that means avoiding extensive exposure to the daily news, get enough sleep, have a routine and get your exercise in, even if it is at home, it helps boost your immune system and reduce the impact of stress in these uncertain times! Don’t focus on what is going on around you, especially if you can’t control it, focus on yourself!
