3 Workout Routines to try at Home!
Whether you are a beginner or are used to training regularly, in this quarantine season, one of the most important things you can do is just move. It's good and healthy for the body and mind.
Exercising at home is something everyone should do, especially at a time when the recommendation for social isolation is the order of the day.
Therefore, we reveal three simple training routines, for beginners, intermediate and advanced athletes, which can break with the monotony of the day.
Don't use the excuse that you have no space at home, because we bet that if you just move the table or the sofa, you can easily find a safe place to exercise.
Also, why not call the whole family and make this a special moment together?
Certainly, the exercises may not be taken so seriously, but, at least, it will be a very fun time that will help you forget that you’re stuck at home.
Before starting a workout at home - What should you do?
Before starting your home workout, you should make sure you have free space to move around comfortably and safely.
If you have an outdoor space, such as a balcony, terrace or yard, then perfect.
Otherwise, not everything is lost: you just have to make some changes to your home decor - calm down, it's only temporary!
Then, you should wear appropriate clothing, just as if you were in the gym, as well as, wear training sneakers and not the casual ones to go for a walk.
Finally, keep in mind that you should always start by warming up to prevent injuries.

If you want, you can make the exercise even harder by doing it with a pair of dumbbells.
