7 Easy Exercises To Do While Social Distancing
Having trouble sticking to a routine during these times of self-isolation? Me too. Don't worry; your 2020 body goals don't have to stop just because your gym is closed for a few more weeks.
Using some of my favorite travel products, plus a couple of weight-adding books, I have created 7 easy exercises to keep you active and moving. Watch the video below to see my favorite luggage lifting exercises!
1. Start small. If you don't have a household scale to measure the weight you may or may not be adding, you should practice the exercises with little to no weight. See how you feel and where your comfort levels are before engaging in a full workout.
2. I perform each exercise for 30 seconds, and then move on to the next. Once I have completed all 7 exercises, I rest for 2 to 3 minutes. Then, I repeat the exercises once more.
3. Because these exercises focus on multiple muscles throughout the body, they are not meant to be done everyday. You should give your body time to rest, and only perform these exercises every other day.
4. Carefully monitor your heart rate throughout your workout, and slow down if you ever feel lightheaded or short of breath. Stretching is a great way to warm up and cool down!
