9 Super-Easy Ways to start Workout at home in 2017

Most people (including me) freak out with the thought of working out. But if you want to remain in shape, you have to work out no matter what. The amount of workout depends upon the physical appearance and health of a person. Try to remain fit and healthy in the year 2017 by following these simple ways to workout at home.

Learn to get up early

First things first! If you want your workout to be effective and you wish to see the results as quickly as possible, then you should train yourself to get up early. Make it your habit to wake up early and go for a walk. This may seem minimal but it has huge impact on your overall health and fitness.

Make measurements 

Before starting the workout, you should measure a few things to have an idea about your fitness and body health. As you are starting this workout at home, you should be careful with these calculations and consult an expert if you think it’s necessary. Measure your waist size, calculate your pulse rate after running a bit, calculate the number of pushups that you are able to do at a time. After writing down everything, start analyzing what type of workout you should be doing.

Plan

It is a very important step to plan and then stick to it. Make a guideline or a schedule for your daily routine and stick to it without any exceptions. Search for some motivation if you need. You can also take some help from a fitness trainer in making a proper workout plan according to your daily routine and bodily health.

Start small

If you are a beginner, then you should start small. You can start with a 30 min walk or jogging. And then slowly, when you start building up the stamina, you can add push ups along with running and then after a while, you can start lifting dumbbells. Always start small and gradually increase the intensity of your workouts.

Your couch can be your workout buddy

At home, you definitely have less equipment as compared to a gym. But there’s no need for expensive equipment. Your couch can be your perfect workout buddy. You can use it as a base for a number of workouts like planks, couch cardio, pushups and arm flabs etc. Therefore, even if you don’t have a single equipment at home, you can still start a progressive workout with the help of your couch. Remember, it’s all about willpower and commitment. If you wish you can work out in a single room and lose enough weight.

Dumbbells

Dumbbells are always a good option because they can be easily used at home or even at your office. Wherever you are, you can keep a set of adjustable dumbbells that will also save a lot of space. In addition to that, dumbbell workout is very easy to do and it doesn’t involve much of an effort as a beginner. The best part is that you can simply buy a set of dumbbells and start your workout at home right away.

Focus on a balanced diet

Along with working out, you should also focus on the diet that you are taking. Try to eat healthy foods and balance your diet. A balanced diet means that it should have all the forms of food for example proteins, fats, fiber and carbohydrates in a proper amount. Try eating a variety of foods including fresh vegetables, fruits and animal based products to achieve a balanced diet.

Set rewards and punishments

If you plan on starting workout at home, then you have got to be hard on yourself. You are the best judge of yourself so be very critical about your choices and your habits. Set some particular rewards and punishments in the course of achieving something. A number of theorists say that human beings tend to learn more if they work to get some reward or avoid a punishment. So, you should also try out this method as it is going to work really well.

Do what your body says

As a beginner, you should let your body decide which way to go and what ways to adopt. If you are starting new, it is important to remember that your body is not habitual of all this and it will take some time to accept the changes. You have to wait and do what your body says.

To sum up the discussion, you should properly plan everything before starting the workout at home. If you follow the steps mentioned above, you will develop a successful workout routine and will be able to achieve your body goals in no time. But you should also learn to have patience side by side as no one gets into the perfect body shape overnight but you earn it with consistency and dedication. Also, you can consider setting up a gym in your home, if you are looking to do more advanced workouts.
