Health tips for men to workout at home

Are you someone who does not have time to go to the gym, is low on finances to pay gym fees, feels too awkward to work out among strangers? If you belong to any of these categories, we have some good and useful workout tips that you can do within the comforts of your home. You can also call in one of your buddies to give you company to sweat it out. For these workout exercises, you need your basic workout clothes, shoes and dumbbells. Working out helps keep men’s health in check and keeps one away from many potential disease. Check out some of the exercises listed below to improve your overall health and well-being!

Push-ups: This is the simplest exercise to strengthen your shoulder, triceps and chest muscles. Pushups prepare you for more demanding exercises that put your shoulder joints to test. Do it on rep.

Planking: This exercise strengthens your core muscles without giving you any injuries. For men, the average duration to hold a planking position is 2 minutes or 120 seconds. Planking is a great way to strengthen your abs and sculpt your torso. Add to this side planking as well.

Bicep curl: With dumbbells in each hand, lift the weights to your shoulder level keeping your upper arms still. Move only your lower arms keeping your elbows stationary. Do this on rep. This exercise will develop your bicep muscles and increase their strength.

Squats: They might look simple, but squats are most difficult to do. Whether you want to shed fat or build muscles, squat exercises are quite beneficial. Squats work out and strengthen all the major muscles of your leg including quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and the muscles that make up the calves.

Lunges: Similar to squats, lunges help to strengthen your glutes, quadriceps, calves, hamstrings and your core as well. Doing lunges is good for your spine posture, flexibility of hips and overall body balance. Do a combination of forward, reverse and side lunges for complete lower body workout.

Cardio: Doing cardio increases your stamina, makes your heart and lungs stronger, and helps in weight loss. Although squats and lunges are also cardio exercises, you can pick a day specifically to do only cardio. Or if you decide to take the stairs instead of the elevator, you will score high on your cardio routine. At home, you can start by walking or running or jumping jacks in place. Or you can get out of your house and jog around the block.
