3 Easy At-Home Exercises That Can Boost Health

By Genevieve Cunningham

Getting and staying healthy is an excellent goal for any person to have for themselves. Better health means a better life, and who doesn’t want that? But most people lead incredibly busy lives. We’re always jumping from one thing to the next with very little rest in between. Who has time to get fit? Unfortunately, a large majority are lacking the time to improve their bodies and overall health. But what if it could be easy? Luckily, it can be! If you need some easy at-home exercises to help you get fit in a pinch, take a look at these effective choices.

Squats and Lunges

Squats and lunges can be done just about anywhere. If you have enough room to stand with your legs shoulder width apart, then you have enough room to squat. And for lunges, all you need is enough space to step up and back. So why are these good exercises? They both work the quadriceps and glutes. These two muscles groups are large, which means working them helps burn more calories. And of course, it also helps you build strength and definition in your bottom half.

Planks

A plank is excellent for the stomach muscles. It requires you to hold them up and tight, and it forces you to contract your entire core. Planks can be done anywhere as well, as is evidenced by the recent plank challenge all over social media. Just find enough space for the length of your body, get yourself positioned off of the ground, and hold. If you don’t do any other ab exercises for the rest of your life, at least keep this solid, effective move in the workout arsenal.

Push-Ups

The great thing about push-ups is that it works just about every muscle in the body. It works the arms and chest as you push your body up and down. It works the abs as you hold your body in a stiff, tight position. And it even requires you to tense the muscles in the legs. Push-ups, when performed the right way, are tough. Take this exercise with you anywhere, and you can get in a quick, intense, tough workout no matter where you are.

If you need a quick and easy way to get in some exercise, these moves are perfect. Learn to do them well, and take them with you wherever you go. Do them on a regular basis -- whether you’re at home, work, or somewhere else. Working out can be easy, and these exercises and a little effort can prove it.
