No Fancy Gym Equipment Needed for This Back and Core Workout

When you don’t have access to gym equipment, you might not think you can get the strong muscles you see while scrolling through your Instagram feed. Especially when it comes to your back, as everyone seems to be achieving those gains from using expensive workout machines—not from doing at-home workouts. But here’s a little secret for you: You can build up just as much strength right in your living room, and you don’t need anything other than a resistance band.

While resistance bands don’t look like much—they are made from latex or rubber, after all—they can challenge you with as little as five pounds and more than 50 pounds of weight, depending on which one you choose. Pretty impressive, to say the least, since that’s essentially the same amount of weight you’d be using with most machines at the gym. And in the latest episode of Good Moves, trainer

Want To Replicate The In-Class Workout Experience At Home? Here’s How

meenakshi

There are only two ways people are coming out of this pandemic; either ripped or in dire need of a diet. Though many cities have started to ease on the lockdown, with the re-opening of malls, offices, salons etc.; many people are still left without access to their usual gyms and workout studios. Most people prefer fitness classes over any other method of fitness and for obvious reasons.

However, the at-home fitness model is here to stay for quite some time, and though it isn’t the easiest, especially if you’re going for yoga classes or HIIT workouts, it is the best option if you want to stay healthy and keep in shape.

While people today have found themselves adjusting to a new normal, the home workout industry has become more accessible than ever. There are many programmes and apps in the market that focus entirely on at-home fitness

TL;DR: As of Sept. 11, select home gym equipment is on sale for up to $2,400 off at Best Buy and Dick’s Sporting Goods.


If Peloton’s recent sale milestones have shown us anything, it’s that people will go to great lengths to recreate the gym experience at home amid the COIVD-19 pandemic. But we’ll go out on a limb and guess that $2,000 (on top of membership fees) isn’t a reasonable ask for most shoppers in need of new workout equipment.

Can these pieces of equipment save you a trip to the gym and make the most of a home workout?

FitXR on Oculus Quest VR Headset (pictured) gives you access to more than four hours of boxing-inspired workouts

COST: £22.99 for the game, an Oculus is needed to play which start from £399.

THE WORKOUT: FitXR, a game for the Oculus virtual reality headset, includes more than four hours of boxing-inspired workouts, including classes to suit beginner, intermediate and advanced users. 

The workouts are choreographed by professional fitness instructors to give users a full body workout involving squats, lunges, jabs hooks and more. 

BRIDIE’S VERDICT:  My first time trying the workout it was a bit of faff, familiarising myself with an Oculus, which I hadn’t used before was a bit strange. You need to draw out a boundary out in your playing area to avoid walking into or hitting anything. 

But this is a one time thing, and as soon as you get going, any time you want

A 15-Minute No-Equipment Abs and Butt Workout

Chyna Bardarson, a Tone It Up trainer who is NASM-certified, is all about maximum efficiency. That’s why she created this quick zero-equipment workout that targets not one but two key muscle groups, your core and your glutes, pushing those muscles to the limit and getting you in and out in just 15 minutes.

Since we’re not using any weight in this workout, “higher repetition is important,” Bardarson said; upping your reps is an effective way to strengthen your muscles without resistance. That’s why you’ll spend 45 seconds doing each move, pushing through as many reps as you can to max out your core and glute muscles. (A quick note: if getting strong is your goal, it’s important to stick to a consistent strength-focused workout plan and nutrition plan; this routine can be part of that!)

Because the workout itself is pretty short and uses only bodyweight, Bardarson said the mind-body

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: The Full Body Workout

A common fitness craze today involves a full-body approach to every workout. You hit every major muscle group in different ways to create “muscle confusion”, and prevent overtraining in one area and complacency in your workout routine. People pay big money for CrossFit, P90X, Insanity, and more.

But what if I told you these concepts were already built in to a martial arts workout that would also teach you how to defend yourself in all kinds of situations? Since you’ve already read the title of this article, you know I’m talking about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. After my standard one-hour class, plus 30 minutes of grappling, I am consistently sore in every major muscle group, and minor ones I didn’t know existed.

The beauty of a BJJ workout is each technique covers so many different body parts, and coordinates them into fluid movement. As an example, let’s look at a common … Read More

Bruce Lee Workout – The Secret to His Great Endurance

Interval training, was one of Bruce Lee’s favorite endurance training techniques.

It always surprises me– the more I learn about Bruce Lee. The more I realize how far ahead he was for his time. Today, high-intensity interval training has been proven by research to burn more calories and create more muscle growth than any other training protocol — currently known.

Let’s say you were training to run for a mile… You would begin by running 440 yards in 60 seconds, you would then rest, for an interval of about five minutes. You would slow down your pace to a restful jog or walk.

At the end of this interval you would then run another 440 yards in 60 seconds, followed by another five-minute rest interval and then again another 440 yards– continue in this manner for a predetermined number of runs.

The Bruce Lee workout for endurance training should begin Read More
