Self-isolation: 5 simple workouts for indoors
Self-isolation and staying indoors for prolonged lengths of time does mean it's important to stay active as much as possible.
That’s why I wanted to share with you some exercises you can follow from the comfort of your own halls. They're free and can be done in no time at all.
Burn fat in bed
If you struggle to get up in the morning, try this 5-minute fat-burning workout. Not only will you burn fat but it'll wake your body and mind up for the day ahead too.
Keep in shape at your desk
Whilst you're getting in some extra revision or listening to the latest podcast, you can still keep moving with these simple exercises you can do at your desk in only 10 minutes.
Workout watching TV
No doubt many will be getting around to watching that series you've always wanted to watch. Well, why not try working out whilst watching your favourite shows! This one is particularly good to do if you want to have fun and tone up.
Increase the intensity
If you go to the gym a lot and want a high-intensity workout, or have been doing some other exercise videos in your room but want to test yourself, follow this Joe Wicks HIIT workout. With no equipment needed this simple yet effective workout will definitely get your pulses racing.
Stretch it out
Although this may seem like a warm down, stretching is actually really good for you and it's something most of us forget to do. Whether it's on its own, after a workout, or before bed, this is a great activity to add to your daily routine.
Being so quick and easy to do and with nothing much else to get up to, there's no excuse not to!
