TIP OF THE WEEK
Can’t get to a gym? No problem. So long as you have a body, you can exercise.
I often hear how some people don’t have the time to get to the gym, or can’t afford a gym membership. Fair enough. But while these may be reasons not to go to a gym, they are not reasons to not exercise.
It’s possible to work every major muscle group of the body without lifting a weight or pulling on a cable. By using your bodyweight as resistance you can eliminate the need for equipment as you tone your muscles and enhance your health.
Between pushups and chins you’ll find no better 1-2 punch when it comes to working the entire upper torso and arms. Scissor kicks, crunches and lying leg raises are excellent abdominal builders. Deep knee bends, walking lunges and wall sits are excellent for building thighs. Single leg raises off a step work the calves and the plank, a Pilates movement, is excellent for developing the core muscles.
Now you have no excuse for not exercising!
