The musts of physical exercise at home
Effective exercise consists of three core activities: aerobics, strength and flexibility. A 360-degree workout includes all of them, to varying degrees depending on your goals.
Strength training contributes to the overall functionality of your body and improves your posture. In addition, the muscles are very important shock absorbers able to absorb stress while protecting the skeletal and joint structures from the risk of trauma. Other significant benefits are for the heart system and peripheral blood circulation.
The complete workout therefore includes a proper mix of these three types of activities: moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise should be done 5 or more times a week, strength training 2-3 times and flexibility training almost every day. After this quick overview of the benefits of an ideal workout, we see which are the right tools to set up a home gym
