Working (Out) From Home
WORKING (OUT) FROM HOME
Right now, it can feel a bit difficult to maintain routine. With all of us trying to thrive at home without neighborhood haunts available for our normal activities, days can start to feel like a cycle of snacks and screens. Gyms are not an option for the fitness-focused among us, but thankfully, there are lots of ways to get those workouts in from the comfort and safety of your own space! Don’t forget to re-hydrate after your sweat sesh with your favorite Purity Organic coconut water or light, refreshing tea.
It’s totally fine if you also didn’t realize that HIIT was an acronym -- “high intensity interval training.” One big bonus of HIIT workouts is that they can be completed with little to no equipment and instead focus on short periods of intense workouts with quick breaks in between. If you have free weights in your home, they can certainly be included, but a 20-minute workout of this type can also be completed by rotating through exercises like burpees, push-ups, planks, squats, and crunches. With the help of online experts, this type of workout can also be tailored to focus on the upper or lower body or simply continue all out for that full-body burn.
If you’re never gotten into yoga, maybe now is the perfect time to give it a shot -- then, post-quarantine, you can hit up the hottest studio in town and impress all your fellow yogis with your excellent Warrior II form. Even if you don’t have a yoga mat of your own, it’s easy to improvise in a carpeted part of your home or to utilize a long towel in a pinch. While many other fitness platforms require subscriptions, there are hundreds of free yoga sessions on YouTube that range from intro to expert. Find your center, greet the morning, do all the things you’d imagine the most relaxed person in your life would do on a daily basis.
Believe it or not, it’s still possible to feel the boxing burn without equipment like gloves or boxing bags. Boxing is a great workout for focusing on aerobics, getting the heart rate up, and breaking a sweat -- and, as an added bonus, it’s the perfect way to release any pent-up aggression you might be feeling. Boxing is also an ideal workout for checking the cardio box indoors, especially since it’s difficult for many of us to run and walk outside our homes right now. For those seeking the cardio high, consider boxing as your new favorite fix.
As Elle Woods reminds us in Legally Blonde, exercising gives you endorphins, and endorphins make you happy. To match your endorphins with some replenishing electrolytes, be sure to keep your supply of Purity Organic drinks well-stocked, and don’t forget: we can deliver enough drinks to your doorstep to keep you working out for weeks.
