As times are difficult and most of the time we are at home due to lockdown we need to take care of our health. Do remember not all exercise means a traditional workout. Here are 4 exercises that you can perform without you even noticing that you are doing exercise.
The Wall Sit
For those of you who are not familiar with the wall sit, this is an exercise done over a period of time rather than a specific amount of repetitions. Try it against any open wall. Stand with your back against the wall, bend your knees and slide your back down the wall until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold yourself in a seated position, (hence the name) for a certain amount of time, normally between 30 to 60 seconds.
Doing it for 5 min daily has amazing benefits. It helps you improve your muscle strength, improves stamina. It helps you develop thigh muscles and helps in relieving stress. It also helps you strengthen your calves.
The most fun part of doing the wall sit is that it can be done anywhere and you will simply enjoy doing wall sits
Always take the stairs
Stair climbing increases leg power, increases the strength of the leg, thigh, and hip muscles. It also helps build muscle mass in the lower body. Climbing stairs helps you improve your heart rate. It is one of the best cardio exercises.
Pelvic floor squeezes
Exercising your pelvic floor muscles for just 5 minutes, three times a day can make a big difference to your bladder control. Exercise strengthens muscles that hold the bladder and many other organs in place. These can help prevent incontinence in old age and improve sex for men and women.
The Heel Raise
The heel raise (also called heel lifts or calf raises) is a simple exercise, usually performed without weights. The exercise primarily strengthens the muscles of the calf. Do 10 to 12 repetitions in 2 or 3 sets, with a short rest in between. It can be several times during the day. Stand with your feet about 10 centimetres apart, with your hands lightly resting on a counter or chair in front of you. Slowly raise your heels off the floor while keeping your knees straight.
You may feel the tension and then some tiredness in the muscles in the back of your lower leg. After getting used to the exercise, you might find that your walking feels easier. This exercise can help with your overall fitness.
Please Stay Home, Stay Safe. Just have fun, and spent time with your loved ones. Do walk as much as you can.
