Just a little floor space and some equipment, you can have a tight and toned body with select strength-training exercises.
You can do pushups and bench dips with the help of a sturdy chair or bed. You can do squats, lunges and planks. Some difficult calisthenics exercises, like burpees and squat jumps build muscular strength and don’t need a gym. Aim for exercises and exercise variations that you can do eight to 12 times in good form in the limited space of your home.
If your budget for a workout equipment is tight and you have a limited to no storage space, use the following:
Free Weights and Rubber Bands
You can already do gym standard staples like lat pulldowns, biceps curls, squats, chest presses, triceps extensions and lunges. If you’re going to use dumbbells, get a weight bench. You can even do advanced twisting lunges, wood chops and even Olympic lifts.
Stability Ball Exercises
A stability ball workout routine challenges your core more. Likewise, any exercise you’re capable of doing on a weight bench or on the floor can get done using a stability ball. In fact, the most effective ab exercises are the ones using this ball. Try also other body-weight exercises like body-weight pullovers, rollups (tucking knees to chest while lying face-down across the ball) and pikes.
Can be slung over a sturdy ceiling beam. Some models can get mounted on top of a door. These build core strength. Try different conventional exercises using your suspension trainer.
