Beginner Friendly Exercises
It’s been said that action is the foundational key to all success. Here’s how to kickstart your fitness goals if you want to live a healthy and fulfilling life this year.
Squats are a great exercise, it hits the quads, the hamstrings, the calves, the pelvic floor, your hip flexors, all the glute muscles, and your core. You can improve balance and stability with squats. Simply make sure you have the right form.
Make sure that your spine and head are in a neutral position. Don’t look down, keep your eyes straight as you perform the exercise.
Mobility exercises should be a part of everyone’s routine, no matter the age, sex, and level of activity. Here are three easy mobility exercises you should try:
- Shoulder circles: Inhale, arch your spine, and roll your shoulders back. Exhale as you round your spine and drop your chin. Repeat
- Knee ups: Improve blood flow. Stand up and raise your knees, one at a time for as long as you want.
- Hip openers: Lift one leg at a time and keep drawing a circle (externally) with your knee, then swap sides.
Planks are great to strengthen the core and the lower back, try to keep the position for at least 30 seconds. Make sure that your bottom is not too high not too low, your body should be aligned, as you tuck your tail bone in, to work the abs.
Step back lunge
Step back lunge is a strength-building exercise that works your calves, thighs, and glutes. Start by standing straight with your feet together, step back into a lunge position. Then bend your body towards the floor at a 90-degree angle. Stand back up to start and repeat.
Remember to start slow and go slow if you want to develop exercise habits that you can stick with for a long time. If you start aggressively, you may give up when you get tired or sore.
