Gym in Your House

Written By Sambasivarao on Monday, January 7, 2013 | Monday, January 07, 2013

Creating gym at-home can be affordable and easy, and you don’t have to spend big bucks on bulky treadmills and weight machines! With just a few small pieces of equipment you can get a toning, calorie-burning workout without leaving the house. 
  1. Jump Rope 
  2. Exercise Mat
  3. Dumbbells
  4. Exercise Ball
  5. Resistance Bands
  6. Foam Roller
  7. Jump Rope

The skipping rope is great for a full-body cardio workout and even better for fat burn. Not only are jump ropes inexpensive but you can do all sorts of interval training with them too. For an intense workout, Jump hard and fast for two minutes, drop and do push-ups for one minute, then burst right back up and do two more minutes of hard jumping. Do at least two or three sets, eventually building up to more. Jump ropes are also great if you travel a lot, since you can just throw one in your suitcase

The great thing about dumbbells is that no matter what your fitness level, you can choose the right amount of weight for yourself. Available in a wide range of prices, shapes, sizes and weights, dumbbells can be included in many types of strength-training exercises. They offer great resistance and engage all the stabiliser muscles. Try lateral raises, dumbbell bench presses, overhead triceps presses, curls, overhead shoulder presses and lunges with weights.

No Equipment Needed

Exercises utilizing your own body weight, like push-ups, require no equipment at all. Other examples of exercises you can do just using your body weight include planks, crunches and squats.  Jog in place for one minute, do jumping squats for 30 seconds, regular squats for 30 seconds, wall or full push-ups for 30 seconds, plank for 45 seconds, bend-downs for 45 seconds, calf raises for 30 seconds and alternating lunges for one minute. Repeat one to two times, two to three times per week.
