Why Body Weight Exercise?
As you guys know that in todays lifestyle, we get very less time for going to the gym, yoga classes, outdoor games or sometimes even for a walk. So, the key to be fit is “at home workout”. You just need your body and shape.
There are lots of content about body weight workouts out there, but in this particular blog, I am going to explain some basic movements/exercises that everyone can do within a small amount of time.
Is warmup needed?
The answer is yes, you need to warm your body up for any kind of exercise so that you wont tear or damage any ligament or muscle tissue. These are some basic warmup exercises that you should be doing before starting working out:
1. Dynamic stretching: This kind of stretching wakes up your muscles for the workout which helps avoid any kind of cramp or muscle tear. Here you stretch the muscle for around 2-3 seconds and then release it and repeat the same for three to four times per muscle.
2. Shoulder circles: Stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart, extend your arms parallel to the floor, draw circles with your finger tips slowly. This will warmup your shoulder cuffs.
3. Neck circles: Draw simple circles using your nose tip, 10 secs or 10 reps in clockwise and 10 anticlockwise directions. This will warmup your neck muscles, ligaments and nerves.
4. Wrist and feet circles: Make a firm fist and rotate your wrist in clockwise and anticlockwise directions for 10-20 reps. Do the same with your feet but without folding the toes.
