So you’re chilling out at home and being the best possible version of corona contributor ( warrior ).Right? Everybody around the world is kind of enjoying or frustrating during this Pandemic, admit it that it’s not in our hand anymore but only we can do is making ourselves and our families safe and follow some government guidelines possible.
You feel like you are restricted by government by limiting your activities, but hey you can still do a lot at home right?
But now since we have seen some lockdown relief, is it good time to go to gym? Let’s consider some facts and possibilities.
When we think of Exercise it’s more of mentally preparing ourselves than physically. What was the first thought that comes into your mind when in this quarantine period, when you think of “Let’s do Some Exercise?”. Most Probably it was ” Na, Not today.” Our mind was always trained in such a way to let go of hard things and settle on easy to do things that gives more or similar pleasure.
If only you’re committed to Exercise on your mind first then on your physical body, you will definitely not need to go to any place to do Exercise. “Gym is like paying somebody else to remind you to do Exercise otherwise you will lose your money.” Self commitment and discipline is the key to achieve or perform any activities you are admitted to do.
So coming back to the point of going to gym, the most infected or spread zone of corona will be gym now, it will be as similar as cinemas but in a more dangerous way. Everyday People who is not self commited will come and start performing some Exercise on the same machines with lots of different person whom they don’t know on how well they are being sanitized. Imagine with the hand gloves, you will be touching all those machines who’s everyone is touching and cleaning your sweat on the same time, touching your body on the same time, waiting for your turn without maintaining social distance. Chances of getting infected is much more here than any other places. But only if you’re self committed and are really having the mindset of doing your exercise on your own without, someone’s motivation, travelling to far places, spending Yearly Membership fees, spending on accessories, you can achieve all that at Home.
Home Gym is the New Gym. Which contains only “You” and “Your Family Members”. Which is much cooler version of Home Gym.
NOW since you have time and decided to start Exercise at Home, Let’s see some of the BodyBoss 2.0 Exercise you can perform while staying at home.
Shoulder Workout at Home with Bodyboss :
- Upright Raw : The bar should be resting on top of your thighs with your arms extended and a slight bend in your elbows. Your back should also be straight. Now exhale and use the sides of your shoulders to lift the bar,raising your elbows up and to the side. Keep the bar close to your body as you raise it. Continue to lift the bar until it nearly touches your chin. Your elbows should drive the motion, and should always be higher than your forearms. Remember to keep your torso stationary and pause for a second at the top of the movement. Lower the bar back down slowly while inhaling.
Suggested Band Setting: 15 (bands through 1 hooked on to 5)
Pass the Band through more hooks to get more resistance. Or add more Resistance Bands to get more resistance.
- Side Raises : Stand with a straight torso and the handles by your side. While maintaining the torso in a stationary position (no swinging), lift the handles to your side with a slight bend in the elbow and the hands slightly tilted forward. Continue to go up until you arms are parallel to the floor. Exhale as you execute this movement and pause for a second at the top.
Suggested setting: 15 (bands through 1 hooked on to 5)
Try this Also : 1,12,13,14 also.
- Boxing : With the wrist straps securely in place, stand in the middle of the base with a slight bend in your knees and shoulders pulled back. Keep your core tight and embraced, as you begin to throw punches out in front of you. Throughout the movement, keep your hands held high around your neck and face, thereby experiencing a constantly level of tension. Try to avoid leaning forward with your punches by keeping your shoulders pulled back. Your torso should be firm in place the entire movement.
Suggested setting: 35 (bands through 3 hooked on to 5)
Always Play with different settings for more or less Resistance.
- Shrugs : Stand up straight with your feet at shoulder width as you hold the handles. Your hands should be a little wider than shoulder width apart. This will be your starting position. Raise your shoulders up as far as you can go as you breathe out and hold the contraction for a second. Refrain from trying to lift the handles by using your biceps. Slowly return to the starting position as you breathe in.
Suggested Settings : Bands through 2 and 4, hooked on to the handles.
