How to Exercise Safely and Comfortably at Home

September 22, 2021

The Implementation of Restrictions on Community Activities or PPKM, requires us to reduce activities outside and do work from home. Work, study, take care of business, even exercise at home.

Muscular endurance, muscle strength, cardiovascular ability, body composition, and flexibility are 5 components of fitness that you can improve while at home. How do you think we can keep exercising with limited space and equipment? What needs to be considered so that home exercises are effective, safe, and not boring? Check these tips out!

1. Use your body

You can use any type of exercise that uses body weight as weight or intensity. For example, squats, push-ups, pull ups. Vary and modify the moves to increase the challenge.

2. Use existing tools

You can use household tools as a tool to train your body. Examples: a gallon of water, a water bottle, a backpack filled with things to add to its weight, a small or large towel, or even a chair in your house. There are so many variations of movement that can be done with these tools.

3. Pay attention to rest time

In sports, there are small rest breaks, usually between sets or circuits. Because at home there is a lot of distraction from the environment, often your rest time becomes too long. We recommend using your stopwatch or timer so that the time between sets you do is ideal, not too long or not too short.

4. Ask your family to join

It can be more exciting to exercise if you do it with friends or relatives. Invite your family to join your exercise program.

5. Take a Live Class from Gold's Gym

Gold's Gym provides online class facilities at https://live.goldsgym.co.id/ which you can take at home. Of course, the movement and intensity provided in the Live Class are very useful and make home workouts effective, safe, and not boring.

Happy exercising!
