Indoor Workouts To Get You Through The Summer Heat
Is the outdoor heat impacting your workouts this summer? Well, you can move your workouts indoors and they will be just as effective! Not only does indoor training protect you from the elements, it is also suitable for people of all ages and lifestyles, as well as being extremely convenient and highly versatile.
There are many outdoor exercises that can be recreated indoors with some home gym equipment like dumbbells, kettlebells, and resistance bands. But if you don’t have equipment at home that’s fine too! There are always equipment free alternatives. Depending on what you have at home, here are some workouts to try.
1. Resistance Training. If you do have a dumbbell, kettlebell or resistance band at home, utilising this equipment to contract your muscles is a great way to tone and burn fat.
2. HIIT Workouts. HIIT (or High-Intensity Interval Training) workouts refer to exercises that involve short bursts of intense exercise, coupled with rest periods or lower-intensity exercises. HIIT workouts can be easily performed at home with no equipment and are ideal if you want to lose weight, support your heart health or boost your metabolism.
3. Bodyweight Training. Bodyweight training is one of the most cost-effective ways to workout indoors. It requires no equipment as all it involves is resisting your weight against gravity; at most you will need an elevated surface or something to hang from. You can easily accomplish a full body workout with just bodyweight exercises. And there are many alternatives to cater for people across all fitness levels!
Being able to train indoors is convenient and affordable but it is important to ensure safety before you start. Make sure there are no obstructions in the area you plan to do your workout and that you are always warmed up well before you start your session. Remember to stay hydrated, especially if you’re doing high intensity workouts and if you require additional support, always consider our curcumin supplement Flexofytol which has been developed specifically to support mobility.
