You may recall that I recently joined a gym because I just was not using my home gym (a.k.a. my dining room) anymore. But there’s a bit more to the story. Yes, I now have a gym membership. Which I love, but I also have days where I just can’t make it in to workout.
So I’ve paired down my home gym to the bare essentials so that I don’t have any excuses. I can get a quick 20-minute workout in any day of the week using just four pieces of fitness gear:
Seriously. Yes, I have more “fun” things (like my beloved yoga mat), but honestly if I have to get a quick workout in, I reach for my (PINK!) jumprope and jump for a few minutes to warm up, and then I get to work.
How To Use Your Fitness Gear
I like using my jump rope to gently warm up my body. It’s not as gentle as rebounding, but it does help strengthen my ankles, which I definitely need right now!
After my body is warm, I like to use my ball and resistance bands in conjunction with each other. I am loving the workout library that DynaPro has put together-it includes a workout for your whole body using nothing more than my three essentials.
Generally, I like to follow a pattern when I’m exercising, especially if I’m using resistance (bands or weights).
After I’ve warmed up, I like to use my larger muscle groups, this means squats using the bands for resistance. Once my muscles are a little tired, I’ll move on to chest, back, biceps, triceps, shoulders, and then lunges (can’t forget those)!
I finish up with an ab workout on the ball.
Do you need a home gym? I’m really, really excited to partner with DynaPro to make that a reality for one of my readers!
