Simple Exercises to Get Fit Right at Home

One of the top reasons why a lot of people do not exercise is that the gym is too far away. Having a fully equipped fitness center in your apartment sometimes is not even enough motivation. Never fear as there are many simple exercises that you can do right inside your home for rent in Cayce, SC and get all the fitness benefits of going to the gym.

Here are some of our top recommended home fitness exercises that you can use to stay in shape even if you don’t want to stray too far from your apartment for rent in Cayce, SC:

1. Stability ball crunches

All you need for this exercise is a large, inflatable ball that is very cheap. It is light and fits into small spaces. This ball is especially effective when working out your abdominal muscles and aiming for those six packs you dream about. Sit on the ball and move your feet forward while leaning back. Put your hands on your thighs or on your temple and then crunch your abs while raising your head and shoulders off the ball. Holding this position for some seconds (you can do a countdown of 10-15 seconds) and then lower your head. Repeat this several times and feel your summer body come to life!

2. Pullups

You can do this at anywhere in your home for rent in Cayce, SC. You don’t need any equipment except a doorway. Simply hang for a few seconds and pull yourself up about 10 – 15 times for a set. After you are done, you can rest for a bit and repeat it at a faster speed. You can buy a simple pull up bar that fits into any doorway for a more effective workout if it is something you find quite effective for you. This exercise is excellent in working your abs and upper body effectively with minimal use of space.

3. Jogging and jumping jacks

This literally requires just standing space. You can choose a nice groovy playlist of songs to jog to right there in your home for rent in Cayce, SC without moving from the spot. You can even jog in place in front of the television to a music video and work out your cardiovascular system. Include some sets of jumping jacks to work out your arms and abs in the process. 20 – 30 mints of jogging in place could have the same benefits as walking for an hour.

4. Pushups

This is another exercise that helps to exercise your heart and build endurance. It also helps your arms and tones your chest muscles. If you get tired, you can start your pushups on your knees instead of straightening your legs. You can even do pushups standing up against a wall to make it more effective and make use of your home space.
