Exercise is essential for leading a healthy life, especially after undergoing a body enhancement procedure. A moderate workout routine will help you maintain the visible results of a Fat Transfer or body sculpting treatment. Unfortunately, going to the gym isn’t always convenient—and because of current events, it’s not even possible right now.
Thankfully, it’s easier than you think to get a full-body workout at home, and you don’t need your own equipment. You can work out all of your major muscle groups with items you have around the house. Here’s a list of at-home exercises you can do for each part of your body:
All you need to work on your abs is a gallon jug of milk or water. Here are the exercises:
- Kneeling Hay Balers
Start by kneeling on your right knee. Lift the jug from the floor and hold it straight out in front of you. Repeat 10 times, then switch legs and do it again.
- Vertical Toe Touches
Lay on your back with your knees bent. Extend your legs into the air and reach for your toes with your hands.
Increase the weight by switching from water jugs to paint cans.
- Walking Lunges
Hold a can of paint in each hand. Take a long step with your right leg and move into a squatting position. Bring your left leg forward and stand up straight again. Then repeat with your left leg.
- Calf Raises
Stand up straight, holding the paint cans. Slowly move up onto your tiptoes, then down again. Repeat 10 times.
Chest and Back
All you need to exercise your chest and back is your washing machine or a sturdy table to support yourself.
- Incline Push-Ups
Place your hands firmly on a stable surface. Lean forward slowly, then push yourself up with your arms. Repeat 10 times, moving slowly.
- Reverse Incline Push-Ups
When you finish your regular incline push-ups, turn around so that you’re leaning back, supported by the surface. Lean back farther and push yourself back to the upright position repeatedly.
Use two soup cans as weights to get lifting done right in your kitchen.
- Bicep Curls
Start with your arms down in front of you with your palms facing upward (holding the cans). Slowly bend your arms and pull your hands to your chest. Repeat 10 times.
- Triceps Extension
Hold your arms straight up, with your hands together. Bend your arms backward so the weight goes behind your back, and then lift them again. Repeat 10 times.
It doesn’t take a lot of time or hundreds of dollars of equipment to get a great workout. You don’t even need to leave your house. With these exercises, you can get a complete, full-body workout at home with stuff you already have.
