Winter is approaching and many of us want to retreat, hibernate, and comfort ourselves with delicious food. This can and should happen, but of course in moderation.
Don't use the changing season as an excuse to not exercise. Here are a few great tools that will help you maintain your active lifestyle in the comfort of your own home so there really is NO EXCUSE to not SWEAT. For optimum results, exercises should be paired with a good nutrition program. If you need guidance or just a change in your routine, JOIN THE TBW CLUB TODAY.
1: RESISTANCE BANDS (W/HANDLES)
These bands are perfect for standing or seated upper (shoulder press/raises, bicep curls, triceps extensions, rows, etc) and lower (overhead squats, donkey kicks) body workouts without heavy weights. The resistance challenges your muscles beyond your own body weight, which stimulates muscle growth.
4: PULL UP BAR
Pull ups are a great complex upper body workout engaging multiple muscle groups (biceps, deltoids, shoulders, back) at once. You can also use the bar to do hanging core workouts by extended leg raises, knee ups, or a controlled jog. If you can't do a pull up, use a closed loop resistance for assistance and work your way off it.
