We wish to be aware of not overdoing it or inflicting further stress to the physique throughout this time but in addition utilizing train as a instrument for total well being & psychological well being.
On the opposite finish, if you end up feeling anxious, attempt motion and see how you’re feeling after.
I get a query rather a lot about “how will I see progress with at-home exercises? I don’t have quite a lot of tools.”
Whelp! I’m right here to inform you what you CAN do to assist see progress and keep constant throughout this time by specializing in just a few issues.
- As an alternative of shifting as rapidly as you’ll be able to by means of totally different actions, SLOW THEM DOWN.
- Make your physique WORK on the best way down throughout a lunge or squat for 3-2-1 seconds after which return to the highest.
