push up exercise

Here are a few exercises you can do at the comfort of your home. Initially start with a little of the below. Over-straining yourself will cause sore muscles the next day! (Personal experience…)

  • Push ups- They tend to tone up the chest, shoulders, triceps, back and abs. Instead of the men’s version you can do the girl’s version which also involves the knees.
  • Squats- A very basic fitness exercise. It works on several part at the same time.
  • Sit ups- These are done to strengthen the abdominal muscles.
  • Lunges- In a lunge one leg is placed forward with a bent knee and foot flat on the ground while the other leg is placed behind.
  • Pull ups- These need to be done to build the upper body so that you can easily lift objects.
