1. The push ups
Almost everybody knows how to do standard push ups. You can do pushups anywhere, at the office, at home, in the field when doing you field work etc. If you want to get the most out of push ups, here are some small variations that you can apply to the standard push up position;a) Do push ups with your hands wider than your shoulders to work out the shoulders and the chest.
b) Bring your hands together to form a diamond shape at the center between your hands to work out the shoulders and triceps.
c) Make use of half push ups. This can be done by either going halfway up or halfway down when doing push ups.
2. The squats
Just like push ups, squats can be done from anywhere. It only takes a few minutes to do several squats. When you start with squats, lower yourself a foot or so. As you become accustomed to the exercise, do deeper squats as your muscles will be stronger. Squats help to work out the muscles on the legs and to tone them.
If you feel that you are advanced for this exercise hence in need for a more intense workout, you can hold 2-two liter bottles that are full of sand when performing the squats. You can add the weights you hold with your hands every time you feel that you need a more intense workout.
3. The crunchesCrunches, if done correctly are great way of creating attractive abs. Crunches also help to burn fat in the body by increasing the heart rate. However, if you don’t do crunches correctly, you can end up with neck and back pains. Therefore, care should be taken to prevent injury.
These 3 exercises can really help you stay fit and maintain a healthy body weight. There should be no excuse for not exercising because all of them can be done anywhere.
