Spring is in the air… and so are viruses and pollen. If you’re one of the many people avoiding exercise to dodge these airborne contaminants, you’re going to be adding on a few pounds. According to research, even steadfast dieting won’t stop you from gaining weight if you’re not working out, too.
But what can you do to exercise when options are so limited? We’ve found a solution that lets you stay home and stay healthy. The best part about it is that you won’t even need to leave your bedroom to get ready for the swimsuit season.
Forget the treadmill. Drop the kettlebell. All these workouts require is your A-game and internet access.
We adore these streaming workouts and know you will, too. Try out one (or more) of these amazing workout sessions to improve your health and knock people out with your new and improved figure.
1. Low-Stress Streaming Workouts
There’s no shame in taking it easy when you’re starting off your in-home workout sessions. With the low-key exercises found in Eccentrics online classes, you can take things at your own pace. These workouts are great for beginners, for those who may be trying to get back into the workout routine, and for when you need a low-key workout.
If you got hurt at work, you’re going to want to contact a workers’ comp doctor before you get started to make sure you’re ready to start these sessions. Once you know you’re in the clear, you can start rebuilding muscle strength so you can vamp up to the more intense workout sessions.
2. Find Inner Zen
There’s nothing more soothing than a good yoga session. Even if you’re a bodybuilder or professional athlete, adding yoga to your workout regimen will ensure your body is nimble enough to avoid injuries caused by overly tight muscles.
