No doubt gym is where the soul is when it comes to exercise and workouts. But in times like these when most of us are working from home and gyms are closed, we need to put up efforts to exercise at home and do not break our gym routine. It is time to ditch those heavy machines and give your body a surprise by performing some floor exercises or bodyweight exercises or other alternatives. These can be done anywhere by anyone. People, who were on a weight loss journey and were trying to transform themselves can try these exercises at home.

First of all it is important to make time in daily routine and since, most of the time is spent at home, you have to fix an hour to yourself for your daily workout. And it will not be difficult if you are able to get up and leave the bed on time like when you used to do when you were attending regular office. You can utilize the extra time to workout at home. Put up a peppy music and get into the mood of exercise! Do your regular stretching and warm-up before getting into the action. Give it about 10 minutes for making your muscles active and making heart rate go up. It will prevent injury and will help you perform better.
