For those of us who are practicing safe social distancing, it's important for us to get the exercise we need, especially as many of us fight our bouts with cabin fever over the coming weeks as we figure out how life is going to proceed. Below, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over a few ways to get your exercise in at home, which will help you reduce anxiety and stay in shape.
Use Your Body Weight
Do body squats, push-ups, and, if you have the means, break out a pull-up bar that you can install in your doorway easily. You'll be able to get a total body workout as a result. Kettlebells are also a great investment and there are countless lifts/throws you can do that will incorporate your core muscle group.
Run in place, do jumping jacks, or jump ropes if you have a floor surface and space that permits. This way you can get a good cardio workout as well as a strength-training workout indoors.
Stretch it Out
After your at-home workout, make sure to get a good stretch in. Incorporate some yoga poses in order to help your body relieve the tension that is sure to come about from this adjustment. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to learn about how our treatments go hand in hand with an active lifestyle.
