Home Fitness Routine: Keeping Up During Covid?

by | Bullworker, Fitness, Health, Total Body

Now is the Time

You might be someone who can no longer utilize their gym membership, find it difficult to continue your normal fitness routine, or be someone who knows the importance of physical activity and sees this as a prime opportunity to get started. Regardless, finding the right home fitness option is important for you.

Bonus

You can take these routines and exercise anywhere. Getting outside and taking in some vitamin D is essential to your happiness and Bullworker products empower you to exercise whenever and wherever you please.

Opportunity

Fitness routines from home might never have been something you contemplated before but with the current circumstances you see the opportunity. For many, the movements and activity in any given day is enough for us to maintain our physical health, reduce our stress, and sustain our energy. But with new work standards and protocols we are no longer getting this movement. Now is a perfect opportunity to start a home fitness routine. If that is the case, finding something simple that works is a good place to start.

What makes a great home fitness routine?

The best home fitness routine is one that targets your goals and works in YOUR house and for your lifestyle. Sustainability is key here. The best routine and equipment in the world will do you no good if you do not use them.

Whether your goals are to continue building strength, burn calories to reduce fat and enhance your definition, cardio/endurance training, or to stay active during these times of isolation, Bullworker home fitness programs will work for you.

What is your Fitness Goal?

If your goal is to continue building strength or maybe continue improving what you have worked so hard to accomplish you need a specific approach. Strength comes from tearing or breaking your muscles down from stress or movements. If you have been training, you know the feeling. The feeling of being sore. The constant reminder the day or two after you exercised your muscles. But, those of us who have exercised and train for strength and size know that these results and progress can halt quickly and in fact start going in the opposite direction once we stop our routine.

Uncertainty

Covid coming back with more cases than ever, gyms have closed, your comfort levels have changed, or your access to exercise equipment is limited. It is important to find a solution to keep up or start your training efforts. Finding a fitness routine at home is easy. There are a number of programs you can find online for bodyweight exercises or other forms to make use of what you have. Many give you the ability to exercise outside at a nearby park, beach, yard, balcony, or wherever you choose.

Keep it Simple

Bullworker makes exercising and continuing your fitness routine and strength gains at home simple using scientifically proven principles. Follow guided routines or make up your own by simulating your preferred routines and exercises. Bullworker offers multiple exercises to develop your chest, back, shoulders, arms, abs, and legs. Best of all you can choose from a variety of products starting at only $20. In the below exercise routine, you can see the ISO-FLO in action which is a fabulous tool for torching calories and strengthening your muscles.

Nutrition is tough

Staying in or social distancing can be difficult, especially if you were used to group fitness sessions. However, we continue to consume food (for some junk food and take out) and we find ourselves moving less. This is a recipe for weight gain, poor energy levels, and an overall decrease in our health and mood.

On the other hand, you can take this time to cook tasty and nutritious meals and start a fitness program at home. Finding a fitness program that works for you is important during these times to improve your health, boost your immune system, mood, energy, and physique. Who knows, it might become a habitual routine that changes your life.

Don’t over think it

There are a multitude of options out there, you only have to pick one and get started. Whether that is following online yoga, a group virtual fitness class or using your Bullworker products.

Try this Quick Fitness Routine at Home or Outside with Your ISO-FLO

Shoulder Presses

Stand in your bottom strap handles and adjust the height of your upper ISO-FLO strap to the proper length. Proper length for this exercise is tension when one hand is up to your chest / shoulder height and your opposite arm near full extension overhead (no need to lock your elbow out). Press up and keep desired tension throughout alternating hand positions. Perform a 10 second isometric hold and follow with 12 repetitions.

Upper Chest Flys

Stand in your bottom strap handles and adjust the height of your upper ISO-FLO strap to the proper length. Proper length for this exercise is tension when one hand is to your chest / shoulder height and your opposite arm near your waist / thigh. Alternate hand positions keeping tension the entire time. Perform a 10 second isometric hold and follow with 12 repetitions.

Lateral Raises

Stand in your bottom strap handles and adjust the height of your upper ISO-FLO strap to the proper length. Proper length for this exercise is tension when one hand is at shoulder height and your opposite arm near your waist. Laterally alternate hand positions keeping desired tension the entire time. Perform a 10 second isometric hold and follow with 12 repetitions.

Tricep Kickbacks

Stand in your bottom strap handles and adjust the height of your upper ISO-FLO strap to the proper length. Proper length for this exercise is tension when you are hinging at your hips bending forward and one hand fully extends behind your torso and your opposite arm curls near your shoulder. Extend one arm behind you only bending at your elbow and create your desired tension by resisting with your opposite arm doing a curl in front of your body. Perform a 10 second isometric hold and follow with 12 repetitions.

Back Rows

Grip your handles with your palms facing down. Row one arm towards your naval. Resist with your opposite arm and perform a 10 second isometric hold and follow with 12 repetitions.

*You may choose to rotate your hands from extended palms facing down, mid-way row palms facing each other and near your torso palms facing up.

Dead Bugs

Adjust your two ISO-FLO straps to proper length by lying down and having one arm full extended over head while the other is down by your waist. To adjust your leg strap, have one foot extended and the other foot knee towards chest (similar to a bicycle movement). Resist with your opposite arm going through the movement of raising one hand over your head and back down keeping your arms straight. For the leg movement, when one leg is straight and the other knee bent towards your chest reverse direction by straightening one leg and bringing the other up to your chest. Perform a 10 second isometric hold and follow with 12 repetitions.
