How to train at home?
Surely everyone who plays sports at home wants to make the most of this business. To train outside the gym to be most effective, the coach advises you to adhere to a few simple rules.
Do not forget about warm-up and cool down
Every workout, without exception, should begin with a warm-up warm up and finish with a full body stretch. This will help you develop your muscles correctly and reduce the risk of injury.
Yes, even at home. Always practice with shoes! You can not train in an apartment barefoot - this can easily injure your joints.
Keep track of your meal times
Try not to eat at least an hour before training, otherwise you may experience digestive problems. Give preference to a serving of long carbohydrates 1.5-2 hours before exercise: this will provide you with an energy boost. Eat protein + carbohydrates half an hour after training. For example, cottage cheese with honey, fruit.
Observe the water-salt balance
Drink a glass of water 20 minutes before training. Quench your thirst every ten minutes throughout the session, but in small sips. After training - another full glass of water.
Whole body in 30 minutes. Effective Home Workout
Just four simple exercises that will work great for different muscle groups.
When can you drink water: before, after or with meals?
Here's how to balance your drinking and why it's important.
What equipment do you need to workout at home?
Some exercises require dumbbells. If you don't have them, fill 1-1.5 liter plastic bottles with water.
Use furniture as a handy tool to lean on. A table, wardrobe with shelves, an armchair, or other object that is comfortable to put your feet or hands on will be useful for stretching or swinging your legs. The chair is almost a universal exercise machine. It is used to perform reverse push-ups, hyperextension and various exercises for the buttocks.
How many times a week should you exercise?
Three or four workouts per week - the optimal schedule for both beginners and advanced sports enthusiasts. On such a schedule, your muscles have time to recover between sessions, and training does not seem like a daily duty. Therefore, the chance that you start to evade and look for an excuse to skip class decreases significantly.
If you think that daily training will allow you to achieve a faster effect, you are wrong. Exercising every day with full dedication, you will feel like a squeezed lemon in a week, maximum two weeks.
