The start of the New Year often means the beginning of resolutions - work harder, eat better, live healthier, just to name a few. But resolutions can be tricky to stick with and most people fall off the bandwagon after a few weeks. If your New Year's resolution is to live a healthier life through better eating and regular exercising, we've got some great blogs coming out this month that can help! Today, we're looking at the top 5 exercises that you can do at home, no gym membership required!
Yoga might not be the first thing you think of when asked about exercise, but did you know that yoga is proven to help reduce chronic low-back pain and offer a plethora of health benefits such as reducing heart rate and blood pressure. Since there are so many different practices of yoga, you can easily find one that suits your pace and health goals. To kick things up a notch, we recommend trying out your yoga routine on your Springfree Trampoline - in fact, there are specific yoga moves designed around a trampoline and yoga mat!
One of the more difficult exercise moves, burpees work out your entire body in one fluid motion. Start standing straight, then lower into a squat position with your hands on the floor. Kick your feet back into a pushup position, then touch your chest to the floor. Jump your feet back to the squat position, then jump as high as you can into the air. For bonus jumping height, try out a burpee on a Springfree Trampoline!
3. Push Ups
Push ups are a classic exercise move that work your arms, chest, back, and shoulders. We recommend starting with a small number and working up to a larger one over time, by adding one extra push up each day. The great part about push ups is that you don't need any equipment and most of the time, you don't even need to wear gym clothes! So take 5 minutes a day to try out a handful of push ups!
4. Sit Ups/Crunches
There are a wide variety of sit ups and crunches positions, so find what form works for you. Similar to push ups, you can build up to a longer workout over time by starting small and adding three to five more sit ups a day. You can do these on your Springfree Trampoline to aleviate back pain from a harder surface.
Jumping isn't just for the kids! There are a wide variety of jumps that you can do on a trampoline and it really is a full body workout. Did you know that 10 minutes of jumping is equivalent to 30 minutes of running? So get your heart racing and try out a jumping routine on your Springfree Trampoline today!
