When it comes to working out, everyone has their fitness niche. Cardio addicts can go for hours running, biking, or using the elliptical, while others prefer to spend their hours at the gym lifting weights and toning muscles. Either way, with the roads a slippery, wintery mess, it is unlikely anyone is getting their fitness fixes outside the home. Whether you want home conditioning exercises, a free yoga class, or streaming videos, here is your guide to at-home fitness.
Exercises you can do anywhere
Sometimes, you need a go-to movements that you can do anywhere. You can repeat any of the following five moves as often as you want and anywhere you want.
Side Lunge: This move is a way to mix up your traditional lunges, working your glutes, thighs, and hips. The American Council on Exercise (or, ACE) says to start with your feet parallel and hip-width apart. While maintaining good posture and keeping your base engaged, step horizontally to the right, with your weight on the left heel. Place your right foot on the floor and bed at the knee until your shinbone is vertical to the floor, and your bent knee is aligned over the second toe. Exhale and push off with your right foot to return to starting position. Repeat on the left side. For an advanced version, do the move while holding free weights.
