5 Myths About Home Workouts Busted!
Due to the worldwide pandemic, almost all the gyms are closed (the biggest nightmare of any fitness freak!)
This is why people took responsibility for their workout schedules into their own hands and started exercising at home. Along with several ways of making home workouts fun, this trend also welcomed several myths that may discourage people from adopting it.
Our mission today is to debunk some of these myths. Keep reading!
Myth 1 – Walks Don’t Count As Workout
In the time of lockdown, a good walk is the only way for people to get off those four walls and soak in some sunshine and freshness. And what most of them may not be aware of is that walks are a great cardio exercise!
Many benefits of walking regularly include –
- Better blood flow
- Muscle toning and strengthening
- Improvement in sleep
- Boost in energy levels
So don’t let anybody tell you otherwise, put on your shoes, and go for that walk! (don’t forget your mask, though!)
Myth 2 – Small Space Means Ineffective Workout
Some of us live in compact spaces such as dorms, studio apartments, or merely a smaller house! So does that mean that working out at home is impossible for us? The answer is a big NO!
Many workouts don’t require much space. For example, find a corner in your living space and spread a yoga mat there. Boom! Just like that, you have a yoga or pilates studio!
Myth 3 – Muscle Toning Is Not Possible At Home
It is a misunderstanding that muscle building cannot be fruitful without gym equipment.
There are many exercises, such as push-ups, planks, and squats, to help you in the process.
And if you are still missing your equipment, just DIY them using your daily household items!
Myth 4 – Home Workouts Are Boring
Whether something is fun or boring, really just depends on us. We know that you may miss your regular gym buddies, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting active at home!
There are many ways by which you can make home workouts more fun than ever! Just get creative!
Myth 5 – You Need a Trainer For a Good Workout Session
It is said that for high-impact, targeted workouts, a professional trainer’s guidance is a must, which is by all means accurate.
But if you are stuck at home with no access to your gym or trainer, many low-intensity workouts can be useful in maintaining your hard work and keeping you in shape until the sign at your gym’s door says ‘open.’
