If your gym has been closed or is closing again, you may find yourself struggling to find at home workout inspiration. Having the right gear can make a huge difference in both your motivation level and can unlock a huge new range of at-home workout ideas! With some extra equipment, home workouts can be just as effective as those you would have done in the gym with the added benefit of being able to work out on your own schedule. Here are some of our at-home workout must-haves.
The classic yoga mat can be used for so much more than just yoga! Using your mat as a soft cushion to land on during HIIT workouts is a great way to ensure that you’re not stressing your joints by landing on firm hardwood or slippery carpet. Try looking for an extra thick mat like this one to use for a variety of workouts like aerobics, HIIT, and of course, yoga.
Resistance bands are an awesome, versatile equipment option that is perfect for at-home workouts. Not only are they inexpensive, but they can also probably be found during your next Walmart or Target run. Try using looped resistance bands for low-impact toning and stretching in moves like clamshells, glute bridges, and lateral lunges.
Red Leaf Pre-Workout
When leaving the house to workout isn’t an option, motivation can be in short supply. Red Leaf Pre-Workout is the perfect extra kick to get you up and moving and ready to tackle your next workout! All of our Red Leaf Pre-workout drinks contain the caffeine equivalent to 1/2 cup of coffee, which provides a moderate dose for boosting your pre-workout energy without the harmful effects of excessive caffeine. With a mild dose of pure caffeine and beta-alanine, Red Leaf Pre-Workout gives you just enough boost to power through any workout without jitters or a delayed crash. Red Leaf Pre-Workout is produced in a GMP-certified facility in the USA to ensure quality and potency.
Dumbbells are a classic at home workout staple that can really bring the intensity to your workouts! Use dumbbells to add extra weight to an endless variety of bodyweight exercises, or use them for focused upper body toning. Dumbbells are another staple that can also be found on your next Walmart or Target run, or on a variety of eCommerce sites.
Need to get your heart rate up, but don’t have a treadmill? Jump roping is another great way to up your heart rate and works up a serious sweat. Speed jump ropes are another easily accessible option that can usually be found on your next grocery run! Try using a training program like this one from Crossrope to ease your way into incorporating a jump rope into your workout routine.
