Easy home workouts

Do you have a busy life and not much time for going to the gym every time? No worries, here you see a few “home workouts” that you can do easily in your room. When I come back from work I am tired and I don’t have much energy for hours of training, so I wake up a half an hour before I use to do (normally at 6:00 and now 5:30) for a few morning workouts. In the beginning it is hard, because your bed is so warm and your tired, but after a while you get used to it and it give you so much more energy during the day. It also motivates you to train more and more when you see results that you worked very hard for.

TIP: Feel your stomach the next time you do cardio. If it is cold, that means you’ve worked hard enough for your body to start burning fat. It is a great way to motivate yourself.

I wake up the same time everyday, even if I have a rest day. You get a daily routine and you body get use to waking up early. Before I do the workouts, I drink a big glass of (half warm) water with lemon. ‘*Start the day with half warm water is good for your belly and your digestion.’ When I do the workouts I also drink one glass of normal water, because you slept all night and didn’t drink. It is good to purify your body with water. It is also very important to do workouts that you like to do, if you don’t like them then it is hard to keep going and the probability is high that you stop. If you get stronger and the workouts going easier, you can add more workouts that you didn’t like before to your list.

HOW TO DO;

* Write down all the workouts that you like to do, as many as you like. Choose from your own list 5 workouts.

For example:
*20 jumping jacks
*20 squats
*20 plank
*20 crunches
*20 high knees

And repeat them 3 times. You can have a short break, or drink a bit water if you need. It is also very important to breathe properly.
If you just started or this is to hard you can also choose to do set from 15 or 10. It is easier to do the sets 3 times instead of doing 60 at a time, because now you have rest and you train other parts of your body in between.

More idea’s that I use.

SUPERFOOD: Almonds

large

Nuts, you can see it as a good snack or as candy… you have them in all tastes and sizes. But I personally never liked them, not necessarily the taste but how you chew it. But my colleague told me a while ago that almonds are very good as a afternoon snack and that you can call them superfood. But I didn’t do much with that information because I just didn’t like nuts and there are many superfoods I eat daily. But than I read on the instagram from a girl with amazingly long, big, shiny hair that she eat many almonds for her hair, and that changes things. Superfood + superhair! So I did my research  and run to the ‘nuts store’ to try the almonds.

They taste soooo different than normal nuts! Taste like vanilla or something?! And they are full of vitamins & minerals and good for the heart, brains and your digestion. If you make a routine from a daily handful of almonds (about 24 pieces) it can help to lower your “bad” cholesterol, reduce, the risk of heart disease and diabetes. There are many more reasons why they are healthy for you, but these must be enough to add almonds to your daily routine.
