In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, people can hardly get to the gyms or fitness studios. However, there are still some ways to keep fit. Considering we now spend most of time staying at home, doing some indoor workouts can still improve your overall health and also, beat off the anxiety. Virmee is offering you some simply training options with no equipment required that you can put on your daily routine.
Unlike the switch, human body can’t be toggled on or off as you wish, especially when you’re ready for an exercise. So, a good and sufficient warm-up is very necessary. Warming up before starting your workout help to speed up the blood flow, raise the overall body temperature, increase the flexibility of muscle and all in all, prevent you from potential injury.
Get down into a quadruped position with your hands beneath your shoulders (or slightly wider) and make sure your body keeps a straight line from head to toe. Bend both arms to lower your body until your chest is close enough to the floor, stay in this position for a while before push up quickly by fully extending your arms.
Prepare your plank like doing push-ups, bend elbows and place your front arms on the floor while separating your legs a little bit and raising yourself on tiptoe. Again, your body should form a rigid line from your head through your spine all the way to your butt. Hold this position as long as possible.
Just imagine you were flying like a Superman, you’ll know how you can do this.
3.1 Lie face down with your hands and legs completely outstretched.
3.2 Slowly lift your hands and arms off the ground while keeping breathing at the same time.
3.3 Hold for several seconds and back to the starting position.
4.1 Stand still with your feet shoulder-width apart.
4.2 Lower your body to a squat position and put your hands on the floor at the same time.
4.3 Kick your feet back while extend your arms as far as possible.
4.4 Jump them back and make sure your feet land outside of your hands, then immediately jump up into the air.
4.5 Ready for the next round.
One last thing to say: For your safety, if you have high blood pressure, heart disease, you’re strongly recommended not to do above workouts.
