Exercise is known to be effective at reducing the risk of heart-related death. A study shows that by doing exercise regularly, you cut the risk of death by about 40%. But, the frequency of an exercise did not seem to matter.
Same goes for the people who have cancer, those cancer patient doing daily exercise lowered their risk of dying by about 18% to 20% compared to those cancer patients who didn’t exercise.
There are loads of machines that can help people exercise and get sculpted and slim, but there is actually one that we overlooked and did not see: “YOURSELF!” Yes, yourself. According to NYC personal trainer Amanda Russell, “Your body is the best piece of equipment you have”
You, yourself can make any workout without stepping your foot into a gym and waste a penny paying the gym instructor.
Try this routine in your home for two or three times per week.
a. Step your left foot forward and lower into a lung.
b. Swing your arms forward & switching your legs in midair like a scissors and land in a lunge with your right leg forward.
c. That’s one repetition
Cross- Body like Mountain Climber
a. Get into a push-up position with your arms straight. Bring your right knee towards your left elbow.
b. Return to start and then bring your left knee to your right elbow.
Stacked-Foot Push Up
a. Get into a pushup position while placing one foot on top of the other so that only the lower one supports your body. Lower yourself until your chest nearly touches the ground or floor
b. Stop at the bottom, and then push back to the starting position.
Squat then Kick
a. Stand up with your feet shoulder-width apart; put your hands behind your head, and elbows out to the sides. Bend your knees and sit back as far as you can.
b. Push back to the start, then kick your right leg in front of you, foot bend
c. That’s one repetition. Repeat by kicking with your left leg, & continue alternating.
In long run, it’s clear that doing this simple home exercise can make you stay fit and healthy and away from illness. So, start seeing yourself as equipment. Remember to equip yourself since health is wealth.
