I feel the exact same way, but look no further than your own home for the workout you want and your body needs. Curious? I was too. Turns out there are a plethora of acceptable workout equipment items lying around all our homes. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? It is quite true and almost shocking how some of the typical household items we all have stored up can actually be used for multiple purposes, one being tools to aid your home workout. Ready to be amazed? Let’s unlock the potential of your new at-home workout options!
There’s no room at home that can welcome more stuff or more clutter than your kitchen. In terms of workout equipment, you probably have no idea just how many items in your kitchen and pantry can actually aid you in your home workouts.
Your laundry room can add some new “pick-up” to your workouts with items that might just surprise you.
Your linen closet can quickly become an aid in your workout routine at your home gym.
Chair - A folding chair or any kind of good chair seat can be used as a weight bench where you can practice your tricep dips, bicep curls and other arm weight reps
Couch cushion - Your couch may be where you typically find yourself just lying around, but you can take the couch cushions off and use them for seated bicycle crunches or stand on the cushion when you do deep squats
Appliances, Walls & Etc.
As you are beginning to see, so much of what’s already in your home can make it your own personal home gym. Here’s some more crazy workout aids you might not have thought about.
It’s That Easy!
Creativity is truly an amazing and useful thing. Who would have imagined that everyday items that you have just lying around your home could be put to another use and help you in your home exercise and workout routines? It really leaves us no excuse to put off exercising anymore. If you can pick up a jug of laundry detergent and climb your stairs a few times, then do it! As always, don’t try any new or vigorous exercise until you’ve spoken with your doctor first and have their permission to move forward into a fitness routine. There are a lot of great resources and videos out there that can show you the proper way to perform these exercises and how they are intended to be done safely. Make sure the ones you choose are in line with what your physician has said is safe for you to do. Anytime is a good time to start taking care of you!
