Jumping Jacks

Jumping Jacks might always remind you of your time in school. However, if you’re looking to do some cardio workout, then jumping jacks is your go-to exercise which you can do anywhere and it doesn’t even consume much space.

The Plank

If you want to build up your core muscles, then this is the exercise for you. Start off planks by holding the position for 30 seconds, and add an additional 10 seconds every day. This is one of the most challenging exercises, but it’s also one of the best for one’s core.

Weights Using Water Bottles

If you are looking to do some arm and shoulder training, then you can make your own weights by filling up water bottles. Take the tallest bottle or even milk jugs and fill them according to the weight you’d like to carry. For a greater challenge, increase the water amount just a little bit, each time you workout.


Dancing is absolutely fun and only makes you want to do more. However, it is also a great form of exercising. So, go get your playlist ready and dance away. We assure you, not only will you feel refreshed but you would have also lost a number of calories.

Cleaning can be very physical, especially mopping. This way not only will your house be clean, but you realise how much physical strength it requires. Cleaning is also time-consuming and will take up most of your day thereby relieving you of your boredom.

Stair Stepping

Stair stepping is a great exercise to do in your home, even if you don’t have a set of stairs available. This exercise might not seem a lot but will surely keep the body active and healthy. Stair stepping also helps in stretching the calf muscles.

Skipping Rope

Skipping Rope is the most fun exercise that will not only make you feel active as ever but also exercises each part of the body. As it has been an active part of everyone’s childhood, skipping rope exercise is always a delightful experience!
