5 Simple Home Workouts For Busy Ladies

So we all know its wonderful to eat right and get to the gym and burn the calories, but life doesn't always allow time for that. Sometimes you have a day where you can barely make it to the toilet, so who can find time for gym. Between children, cooking, work and whatever else we are busy with, it may prove hard to find time to train.

 

So lets discuss some very basic but effective exercises that can be done at home in the kitchen or lounge or wherever you fancy. You can do them quickly in ten minutes if need be.

 

I would recommend starting slowly and maybe each day add a few more reps so that you are constantly pushing yourself a little more each day. Start with squats. Simple standing squats legs apart the same width as your shoulders and go down until your legs are parallel to the floor. The benefits of squats are vast and work your whole body and core, including strengthening your lower back. Start with 20 on the fist day and try go up by 10 reps each day. Push yourself.

 

Next up the dreaded burpee. Start standing, drop your body down into a squat position and place your hands on the floor in front of you. Jump your feet back so that you are in a push up position, keeping your body straight from your head to your toes. Jump your feet back so that you are back into the crouching squat position. Reach your arms up and jump explosively into the air. Land and then go back into the squat for your next rep. These are hard and tiring so start slow with 10 reps and increase each day by 2.

 

Pushups are great cardio and keep the chest toned for bikini season. Down to the floor arms straight only your hands and balls of your feet touching the floor. Body straight from your head to your toes. Down until your upper arms are parallel with the floor and then back up again. Start slow with 10 reps and try increase by 2 each day.

 

We must add some more core work so the ever popular plank is a necessity. Place your forearms on the ground with your elbows aligned below your shoulders, and your arms parallel to the body. Keep your body straight from your head to your feet, balls of your feet on the ground. And hold. This strengthens and work your core and muscles you did not know that you even had. Start for 30 seconds and increase by 5 seconds daily.

 

We want to always keep our legs toned and well shaped so standing lunges are fantastic whether at gym or at home. From a standing start, step forward with one leg lowering your hips so that both your knees are bent at about a 90 degree angle. Then push back up to a standing start using your front leg. Alternate legs and do 10 on each side. Increase by 1 on each leg daily.

 

These are excellent basics and will do perfectly to help u stay toned and firm. Anything is better then nothing and these will help you get started. We can always do something, even when we can not find time to make it to the gym. Be proactive. Let's get started. 5 basics exercises to work up a sweat!
