Exercising at home, or taking part in one form of exercise per day – whether that be running or cycling in your local area – is now a reality for the next few weeks.

There are so many options to simply keep fit, or maintain your fitness regime at home, and we’ve brought together some of the best workouts and tips to help you through the process.  Preparing for, performing during and recovering from exercise is still vitally important, which is why we’ve developed two new, exclusive home workout bundles to support you and your biggest organ – your body – during this period.

Find reasons to work out.

Right now, trusting in the process is key, as changes or big transformations might not be as fast as usual.

Whether you are exercising to tone up, lose fat, gain muscles, or simply to exercise your mind, it’s important to know why you are doing it. So often we get disheartened because we lose track of why we are exercising, and stop any activity altogether in favour of relaxing.

Working out doesn’t need to be physical

Working out helps to release endorphins, the happiness hormone, and improves your mental health. Whether you choose to go for a run (within the official governmental limits), follow a yoga class online, work out your abs and core, or put a sweat on with an at-home HIIT class, working out will always make you feel better, both physically and mentally.

In addition to this, our best tips to stay healthy during this unusual time are:

  • Drink a lot of water, at least 2 litres a day.
  • Stay active and work out from home.
  • Eat healthy and nutrient-packed foods, but don’t feel guilty if you indulge once in a while.
  • Stretch and allow for some time to relax, away from screens and your work-from-home space.

We are very fond of weight workouts, if you can invest a bit more money into your at-home training. Weight training is extremely beneficial for long-term fat loss, muscle building, and general tone up. This set of at-home weights composed of cast iron weights, two dumbbells into a barbell perfect for varied full-body workouts.

A good and cheaper alternative to weights is a hip band. It adds resistance and difficulty to your exercises without breaking the bank.

The NHS also has varied resources to live better and healthier, including a series of 10-minute workouts, and short warm-up and cool-down routines.

One of our brand ambassadors, Prof. Greg Whyte OBE, is offering free access to his workout and nutrition platform, Better With Bean, during this lockdown period.
