You don’t need us to tell you that it is important to exercise several times per week. You need to make sure that you are active. However, this does not mean you need to go to the gym – you can work out effectively from home if you would prefer. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best home-based exercises.

You won’t need any equipment to carry out these exercises. You may want to look into purchasing manduka mats so that you are more comfortable. Aside from that, the only thing you need to do is make sure you carry out the exercise correctly so that you do not pick up any sort of injury.

Single-Arm Superman

First and foremost, let’s begin with the Single-Arm Superman. After all, by the end of this workout, you should definitely be left feeling like you can take on the world! Begin by getting into the raised push-up position. Lift your right arm and extend it forward – exactly like Superman does when he is flying through the sky. Make sure you repeat this action for the left arm as well. This exercise is extremely beneficial for your arms, shoulders, chest, abs, and back.

Hip and Thigh Blaster

The second exercise of the four is the Hip and Thigh Blaster. You guessed it… This works your hips and your thighs! However, it also works your back and abs as well, so it is very beneficial. So, begin by standing with your feet apart and bring your fists to your shoulders. After this, you need to bend your left knee ever so slightly and slowly lift your right leg straight out to the side. You will, of course, need to make sure you switch sides and lift the left leg whilst the right leg provides the support as well.

Archer’s Plank

The Archer’s Plank is a great exercise because it works several different parts of your body. This includes your abs, chest, back, shoulders, and arms. To perform this exercise you must get into a raised push-up position. Now you are going to bend your elbow and lift your left arm off the floor towards the ceiling. When you do this make sure you rotate your torso to the left. You will of course then repeat this on the right side of your body.

Butt Lifter

Finally, you may have gathered by the name that this exercise works the bottom area, including your bum, thighs, calves, back, abs and hips. You are going to stand up for this exercise. Ensure your knees are bent and your feet are shoulder-width apart. Bringing your fists up by your shoulders will help with your balance. Now, shift all of your weight onto your left leg and bring your right leg behind. Straighten it and touch the floor with your toes. Sweet this leg from side to side and then lift it as high as you can. This requires a good level of balance, yet is extremely beneficial. Don’t forget to alternate legs.
