Narrow space is not your reason for not exercising, Svargans.
Because exercise is one of the best ways of healing that can make you more productive and healthy for sure.
This time, Svarga has some tips for those of you who want to workout even in a tight space.
1. Push Ups
Svargans, can you try the push-up movement for a workout in a narrow room? To make it more optimal, you can use a mat as a base for Push Up and an auxiliary tool, namely Push Up Stand. Because the Push up stand functions as a tool that makes it easier for you to do push up movements by reducing pressure on your wrists.
When having trouble doing a full push up, you can start with your knees pulled in close to your chest rather than with your legs extended. An alternative posture as an adjusted push up using a push up stand and bent knees gives good results compared to regular push ups.
2. Sit Ups
Second, you can do Sit Up movements.
To make your Sit Up easier, you can use Sit Up aids, namely Sit Up Stands.
Because Sit Up Stands can increase abdominal muscle strength, form a firmer stomach, improve posture, and improve balance and coordination.
Here are some steps you can follow to use sit up stands:
First of all, make sure that your sit up stand is properly assembled and safe to use.
Lie down with your back on the cushion and place your feet on the leg supports.
Place your hands behind your head with your fingers spread out. Make sure your fingers don't pull your head up.
Lift your body by bending your stomach. Make sure that you don't pull your neck forward.
Hold this position for a few seconds, then lower your body back to the starting position.
Repeat this movement as many times as you can.
Surely you are already familiar with this one movement. Yes, squats.
Squat exercises with a hip resistance band can help increase hip muscle strength, which can help prevent injury and improve posture. In addition, this tool can also help reduce tension in the joints and increase body flexibility, you know.
The following is how to do squats with a hip resistance band:
First, tie a hip resistance band around both thighs above the knees.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and ensure that the elastic band of the hip resistance band is taut around your thighs.
Then, bend your knees and lower your hips toward the floor, as if you were going to sit on a chair.
Make sure to keep your knees over your toes and not over your toes on the way down.
Hold the position for a few seconds before returning to the standing position in a slow, controlled motion.
Repeat this squat movement for several times.
4. Mountain Climbers
The mountain climbers workout is ideal for increasing your overall strength and endurance, as well as helping burn fat and calories fast.
The following are the steps for mountain climbers training:
- Stand with your body straight and feet shoulder-width apart.
- Bend forward and place your hands on the floor in front of your feet.
- Straighten your legs back so your body is in a plank position.
- Bring your left knee toward your chest and then return to the plank position.
- Perform the same movement with the right knee.
- Repeat this movement alternately with both legs, as if you were climbing a mountain.
So, there's no reason not to workout even in a tight space right? Hihii
Happy workout, Svargans!
