In this time of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our lifestyle has changed and been limited to mostly sitting at home. This leaves us all with not much space for exercise, especially affecting those who go to the gym. 

Without us leaving the house, our bodies will slowly become less flexible and our fitness may not be in perfect condition. However, there are many solutions for this that you can partake during these strange times, one of them being Home Workouts. You can do home workouts throughout the week in order to keep your body healthy and to keep your mind occupied during the lockdown.


Importance of Home Workouts


Benefits of Home Workouts

Home workouts save a lot of time, regardless of the current situation we are all facing. You do not need to go to the gym, or invest in expensive equipment. You can work out at any time of the day with no restrictions, and you do not need to worry about getting to the gym on time! 

You can workout privately from home, making the exercise a little more comfortable, and without having to feel self-conscious about anything around others. However, the most important benefit in our opinion here at Essential Wellness is that you workout at your own pace. You do not need to be rushed or to push yourself beyond your limits. You can workout calmly.

What types of Home Workouts are they?

There are many home workouts you can do, some being more intense than others. With that in mind, it is important to find what you’re comfortable with doing. Choose a workout akin to your fitness level, your health and your age. 

Here are some links to some Home Workouts that are recommended by the National Health Service:

Home Cardio Workout (10 Min)

Home Toning Workout (10 Min)

Home Legs, Bum and Tummy Workout (10 Min)

Home Abdominal Workout (10 Min)

Home Upper Thigh and Bum Workout (10 Min)

Home Upper Arms Workout (10 Min)

There is also a Warm Up and a Cool Down that is also recommended if you want to keep your body afloat: 

Home Pre-Exercise Warm Up (6 Min)

Home Cool Down Routine (5 Min)


What is the best way to recover from a Home Workout?

Recovery is a vital and important part of working out. As mentioned above, a warm up and cool down is recommended, but what is really needed is a massage of the muscles to prevent (or cure) an injury. 

OurMuscle Massage Gun can help provide relief to body stress after a workout session and will give your body a calming aura of relaxation. It is available now on our website at a discounted price.
