In the era of the coronavirus, regular exercise is even more crucial than it has ever been. You’ve been working from home and you’ve become a good friend with your couch. Listen closely, because your couch is saying ouch! It’s time to start exercising!
The good thing about being at home is that you can workout at any given time. You can do many exercises, you can do squats, triceps dips, crunches, deadlifts, lunges, push-ups!
A chair or a sofa, have fun!
You can use a chair or sofa, if you have kids at home you can get them involved and make your exercise even more fun!
You can do strength training or even cardio. We recommend jumping jacks, high knees, butt kicks, lunges, just to increase your heart rate. And burpees!
Challenge yourself and try to get under 5 minutes for 100 burpees! If you can’t make it, try to finish.

Your body is designed to move. It is designed to run, to push, to pull, to lift. To move! Since our motto is Inspiring experience of sport we want to encourage you to exercise now even more. After you’ll finish your workout you will feel more relaxed and better.
The thing is exercise increases serotonin in the brain which leads to improved mental clarity, cognitive function and better moods. Besides, it decreases stress and anxiety, and helps you sleep better.
Regular physical activity will help you boost your immunity and strengthen your immune system.
How does exercise help you with that?
According to studies physical activity helps to flush bacteria out of the lungs, decreasing your chances of getting a cold, flu or other illness. It also reduces stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, which may protect you against illness.
Establish a regular workout schedule by selecting certain days and times for your workout session. You can even workout while watching your favorite Netflix show!

Aim to workout at least 15-20 min a day, 150 minutes a week total. Incorporate a strength training workout at least 2 a week. That’s any exercises that uses resistance such as weights, your own body weight or for instance Booty Shape band.
Do 3-5 sets of 12-15 reps of each exercise. Before you start warm up and after you finish cool down. Twice a week have a rest day. That means you can go for walk (if that’s allowed!) or you can do stretching which will help you build flexibility. Stretching will prevent stiffness and pain.
