Exercise Equipment for Home
Many of you shared that you have various workout equipment at home which are mostly used for hanging clothes :P. Guess the only reason, we mostly feel demotivated to use the home workout equipment, is the monotony. This may be also due to our unawareness about various innovative and challenging usages of those equipment. Ahaan, we can have variety of fun and challenging workout with a tread mill too.
As an example let me take tread mill. Now there are two types of training called Intermittent training and interval training. Both of them are excellent for weight loss and we can design different workout using either of them. First let me discuss these two types of training specifically for treadmill. Then I will give an example workout.
Intermittent Training for treadmill: Fix two speeds and alter between these two speeds over a period of time. Just that these speeds should not be very high or low. And there should be a good variation of intensity. for eg if you decide to run for 10 minutes then make 5 sets of 2 minutes each for 5-8 or 6-9 or 4-10 etc. i.e 1 minute run on 5 and then 1 minute run on 8 and this way do 5 sets.
Interval Training for treadmill: Again fix two speeds and run alternatively on each of them for a period of time. The difference is in the two speeds. In this case 1 speed is very high and other very low. The very low period is like recovery period. So you sprint and recover and so on eg run on 11 for some 1 minutes and walk on 3 for 2 minutes and so on ..
You can either do only running using any of these training or can incorporate other exercise to it. For eg check out on of my exercise chart below.
1. Intermittent training 10 minutes (5 – 9)
2. Jumping jacks 1 minute
act as a warm up
4. Interval training for 10 minutes (2 – 10)
5. Squats 30 seconds
6. Crunches 1 minute
7. Push ups 1 minute
8. slow walk generally on 3 for 5 minutes for cool down
Similarly, those who have workout cycle at home can try spinning. Share what exercise equipment you have at home, I will tell you some fun ways to use it
I found this very good home workout video. It is just of 5 minutes but really grilling and any one can catch it.
