10 exercises you can do at home to get fit.

With summer just around the corner, everyone is thinking about how to get in shape to show off an incredible body for this season.

The good news is that you don't need to go to the gym to achieve it! There is a wide variety of exercises you can do from the comfort of your home to improve your overall fitness. Some of them require simple equipment, but most only need you, your imagination, and a little motivation.

The following home workout routines are designed to get you in shape just in time for summer, without loosening a single dime or committing to a gym membership.


  1. Yoga:

Doing yoga is probably one of the most popular and easy exercises you can do at home. It's easy to learn, fun, and has a wide range of benefits. All you need to start your workout is a yoga mat and your favorite meditation tunes.


Since yoga also involves a mental aspect, it's important to relax and let your body do its work when you finish your yoga routine. If you're not sure where to start, there are many extremely helpful videos on YouTube that teach you the basics of yoga.


  1. Abdominals:

These exercises practically explain themselves, consisting of lying on the floor and moving to a seated position without using your hands. There are different variations of this exercise, but the principles to strengthen your abdomen and develop your core muscles remain the same. You can use a yoga mat to protect your back from hard floors.


  1. Squats:

Squats are one of the best exercises you can do with your body weight. They require no equipment and can be completed by almost anyone, almost anywhere! The benefits of squats are numerous, from developing leg muscles, eliminating fat, and strengthening your abdominal muscles (think of your "six-pack!") to improving your posture. It's important to perform them correctly, so make sure to learn the correct technique before trying them out.


  1. Planks:

Planks are a body weight exercise targeting your core muscles and designed to improve your torso's strength. Start in the push-up position, balancing on your knees and elbows. When you're ready to start the exercise, lift your knees and support yourself on your toes and hands. Try to keep your body relatively parallel to the ground and maintain this position for as long as possible.


  1. Push-ups:


Old-fashioned push-ups are still one of the best and simplest exercises you can do at home. Everyone can do some type of push-up to develop their body muscles. The muscles mainly developed with this exercise are the arm and abdominal muscles. If you're not used to doing this type of push-up, start slowly, don't try to do too many in one session, or you'll be sore for days!


  1. Bar exercises:

With the help of a bar, you can develop your back and shoulder muscles from the comfort of your living room. These exercises are also known as 'pull-ups' in English and are very easy to do. Once again, it's another exercise that can be completed by people of any fitness level. If you can't complete a real pull-up, place a chair under your feet for support and try to lift yourself up as much as you can with your arms.


  1. Burpees:

Burpees are the pinnacle of home exercise. They help you develop almost every muscle and system in your body. They'll leave you breathless and drenched in sweat. If you're not sure what a burpee is, look it up on the internet. You'll see many examples, many of which will show people almost dying due to the difficulty of these exercises.


  1. Jump rope:

Jump rope doesn't require much explanation, perhaps you know it as skipping rope. This exercise develops your cardiovascular system and is one of the best ways to perform high-intensity training from the comfort of your home.


  1. Running:

Never underestimate the usefulness of simply going for a run. Although it may seem a bit boring, or you don't like exercising in public, the benefits of running are hard to beat. You'll feel healthier, lose weight more easily, and be more energetic at any time. Just make sure to listen to fast-paced or upbeat songs when you go running to help you cover all the miles you set out to.


  1. Lunges:

Lunges target your glutes (one of the best areas of your body to work on before summer!). They are easy to perform and you can do them without equipment and with just a little knowledge of fitness conditioning.
