Easy workout to do at home
If you need some tips to add extra exercises that can be done in the same time as a Curves workout, follow the guide!
1. Take the stairs
Turn on your favorite song and walk or jog up and down your home’s stairs. Raise your heart rate and continue this exercise for the duration of the song.
2. Commercial break wall sits
While watching your favorite TV show, squeeze in exercise during the commercial breaks. Instead of sitting on the couch, sit against your wall! With a 90-degree bend in your knees, keep your back straight and flat against the wall during commercials. You’ll start to feel your thighs burn!
3. At-home circuit training
Complete several repetitions of your favorite calisthenics. Easy at-home exercises for a circuit include squats, push-ups, lunges, crunches, and planks. Build on several reps of each exercise for a complete circuit.
4. Chair dips
Are you wanting to tone your arms without hitting the weight-lifting machines at the gym? Try chair dips to target your triceps. Keeping your feet flat on the floor, place your hands on the edge of the chair and bend your elbows 90 degrees to lower yourself toward the ground. Push yourself back up, being careful not to lock your elbows when straightening your arms. Do several reps to sculpt your arms into shape.
5. Morning stretches
Just as you get out of bed in the morning, take 15 minutes to breathe deeply, stretch and perform simple yoga poses. Positions like the downward facing dog, the pigeon pose and the tree pose improve balance and strengthen your muscles. You’ll also relieve some stress before the day begins.
