6 apartment friendly workouts to lose weight

Too lazy to hit the gym? Here are 6 apartment friendly workouts that could help you lose a few inches.

During my college days, I was marred by the thought that I could never be a regular gym person and hence would only waste my money in annual membership.

Back then, I had limited knowledge and relied on diet and Yoga. Although now I am a regular gym person, due to time constraint I still frequently engage myself in equipment free work out at home.

So, this blog is all about apartment friendly workout which you can do without any excuses:

1. Squats:

One of the best apartment friendly exercises for you, whether you’re trying to build muscle or lose weight (or both.) Make sure to keep your entire body tight the entire set. Keep your back straight and spine neutral with your upper body (Chest & Shoulder) upside. For better concentration, you can keep a spot on the wall to lose balance.

2. Lunges:

It is a single-leg bodyweight exercise that helps your hips, glutes, quads, hamstrings, core, and the hard-to-reach muscles of the inner thigh to work the best.Β  Engage your core to take a step forward with the right leg and move your weight frontward so the knee can touch the floor. Make sure the right thigh is parallel to the floor and drive back to the standing position. Keep repeating the same with the left side.

3. Push Ups:

This no-equipment workout is sure to build your strength, there are many variations to this so a beginner can always start with the easy version where you can have your knee rested to the floor. Lying down on the ground place your hands at the distance wider than the shoulder, with your knees adjoined to the floor. Now take a deep breath and push your body up and back down. Tighten your butt and get your core engaged.

4. Reverse Crunch:

You can either try this workout on a bench with your arms holding the bench overhead or by lying on the floor on your back with your hands folded.

Lie on the back and rest your palms down to help give you the balance for the lift. Bend your knees at 90 degrees and lift your legs up which is perpendicular to the floor. Do not let your back arch off the ground as it can cause injury.

5. Plank:

Engaging your core muscles hold the body stiff by taking the support of your hands on the ground. And stand still in the position for 15,30, or 60 seconds basis your strength and control. Try to focus on the core muscles and do not let your back strain by pushing the lower back upside as it is a wrong way to do the plank.

6. Mountain Climbers:

This is a little intense workout as it gets your heart rate up fast, but it is the best workout engaging muscles like deltoids, biceps, triceps, chest, obliques, abdominals, quads, hamstrings and hip abductors. It is a complete body workout starting with a plank position and pulling your right knee toward your chest.
