Gymming is the new trend. Earlier, people used to flock to yoga sessions and yoga classes. But even after realising the benefits of yoga, a lot of people have now taken up gymming has an inevitable part of their lives. But, does everyone has the time to go to a gym each day? Definitely not! Life is getting busier with each passing day and everyone has deadlines to meet. In such a chaotic and tiring scenario, hitting the gym religiously seems a little too difficult. And, then come those who are rich and make their gym at home. They totally spend a bomb getting all the equipment at home and having their cosy home gym. Let’s face it, we do not fall in that category either.
Thus, what is the best thing to do then? Well, the key to success in such a situation is to find things at home that can be used in place of the gym equipment. Yes, it is totally possible! All you need to do is open your eyes and look around. Remember the good old days when not everyone spent so much or even went to any gym in the first place. That was when being natural was the mantra most people followed and simply used easily available items at home instead of gym machines.
Read ahead now to find out items at home that can be used instead of gym machines.
- Milk jars: You may not have thought but mill jars and cartons can actually be helpful to you in the sense of weights. You can lift them and try to make those biceps and triceps look just like that of a Greek God or Goddess. In fact, do not worry if you get the milk in packets. You can try to balance them on your head and then do your squats. This will help you to maintain your posture because if you bend too much, the packet is bound to fall and burst open. You wouldn’t want that at any cost. Besides, who’ll do all the cleaning then!
- Stairs: You can use your stairs at home for steps ups. In fact, try to run up and down all the stairs for ten times straight without stopping and you’ll know what breath is. Also, you may use your stairs to practice push ups.
- Cutlery: Each time you hold a spoon or fork, you must be wondering how light they are. But have you ever thought that what will happen if you make a bunch of them all and tie them together? Well, try it and you’ll get a really heavy answer. You may use this in place of dumbbells. You are bound to see it work wonders for you.
- Fruit and vegetable bags: Last but not the least, you can use your fruit and vegetable bags as weights. In fact, you can attach them (when full) at the two ends of a stick and then try to life them on your shoulders. Trust me, you’ll know what pain is.
