During the critical circumstances created by a coronavirus, life has been confined to the homes.
With every passing day, this unfortunate event is unfolding its layers.
It has become challenging to keep oneself motivated, especially for gym lovers.
Although hopefully, gyms are going to open soon, for a lot of us, minimalist workouts are all that we have at this time.
But you don’t need to get panic, as there are various other options you can opt for.
Like many other YouTubers, Bradley Martyn has come into the place, offering the best and helpful at-home workout tips and great ideas.
According to him, ‘you don’t need to have tons of equipment for working out; all you need is passion and determination.’
So as far as the gyming is concerned, your body weight is enough to build your chest and back.
You can find out more about his videos on YouTube.
His workout exercises consisted of push-ups, dips, and a variety of various back exercises.
He said you guys need to be creative and use various other available options to make your exercise more effective and challenging.
He intended to get a 50lb bag of the bag or 2*25lb bags for additional weight in the replacement of equipment.
The first exercise which he showed was the dip; it is superb for triceps and the chest.
He has got a station which he uses.
But if you have the one, then it is even greater.
You can use 1 or 2 chairs, countertops to proceed with it.
To challenge yourself a bit, you can use a constant tempo, reps, and various other techniques to make the exercise super challenging.
However, the next one was the pull-up, and he recommended changing pause reps, tempo, etc. to challenge yourself a bit hard. It's easy to set a goal, but you need to work hard to achieve it.
He further noted that you could do exercises in between, like jumping rope, in case if you want to keep the heart rate up, or your goal is to lose weight.
However, for shoulders, Bradley Martyn showed the best dip variation using a small table.
Another back exercise Bradley Martyn revealed was an inverted row using a broomstick which Bradley Martyn placed across his kitchen counters.
However, you need to make sure to have a strong broom or mop for your safety.
This is also the best alternative exercise if you don’t have a pull-up bar.
No problem, if you don’t have a pull-up bar, you can use a broom as an alternative.
Place it on two solid surfaces.
However, if you hit failure too earlier, then it would be tough to get in enough reps for the traditional pull-up.
There are several exercise options, especially during these days when the gyms are close.
So yes, there is no need for excuses!
However, you can use different loads for every exercise, but you may need to use different techniques to ensure you get the best results.
