The summer is the season to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. While there’s nothing like the fun that can be had during this season, plenty of people struggle when it comes to feeling confident for putting on a swimsuit or going outdoors with little-to-no clothing on.
For example, I have plenty of male friends who refuse to take their shirts off at the beach. They don’t want their Dad-bods on display for the world. While this is perfectly understandable, albeit a little superficial, there are quite a few steps we can take to improve our health, confidence, and self-esteem, even while quarantined at home.(more…)
Quarantine is tough on our minds and our bodies, and if you aren’t lucky enough to have a home gym, staying in shape while stuck in the house can seem nearly impossible. Food is constantly at your disposal, and it is easy to fall into some pretty unhealthy habits if you are not careful.
As part of our quarantine series, perhaps you are already trying to exercise daily, but it’s not quite enough. Here are some easy things that you can do to boost your at-home workouts for quarantine and achieve maximum health benefits.(more…)
You can always go do your thing somewhere outside, like in a park, or by a river, or up on a rooftop of an apartment complex, if you have access. However, some days going outside is not an option. Maybe the weather is horrible, or maybe people stare at you. Many folks report embarrassment as one of the biggest reasons why they hate going to a regular gym, and you can read all about these different mind blocks here.
So, a home gym might be the way to go! But in the comfiness of your own home, it can be really hard to keep your motivation up. So, we prepared some tips for you to help solve that issue!(more…)
We all know that exercise makes us healthier, stronger, less stressed, more energetic and also helps us live longer. Yet we neglect to work out as often as we should. There is the difficulty of getting on with it, of complying with the exercise on a daily basis since we all have a busy life. As such, getting a membership to the gym isn’t an ideal choice for all of us.
For others of us, we may be suffering from a temporary injury. If you suffer an injury and are scared to perform any physical exercise or go to the gym, visit a physiotherapist. A qualified physiotherapist can design a workout plan for you minimizing the risk of injuries. Healthcare centers like Pillars of Wellness provide client-centered physiotherapy to restore flexibility and movement and maximize strength.
Some people see the gym as a second home. Whether for music, atmosphere or equipment, fitness enthusiasts like to meet to train hard. But what if you are not comfortable in a gym or just do not want to put money every month to train? Don’t worry, we have good news for you.
A gym is not the only way to keep yourself fit!(more…)
Build Upper Body Muscle & Strength At Home
Pull-ups are simply one of the finest body weight exercises that can be carried out for your upper body. Pull-ups workout your core, back, arms, and shoulders working out almost every muscle in the upper body. Pull-ups can be performed virtually anywhere that you can locate a bar to cling from.
We all know about the normal pull-up; how tough they are! This exercise in itself demands great power, and if you cannot perform at least 20 standard pull-ups in a row, then I suggest you do not attempt any of these advanced pull-up versions until you can.
