As the way that society operates continues to evolve at a fast pace, it is simply wise to make your productive activities as portable as possible. One essential activity that tends to be positively impacted by remote accessibility is working out. Being able to maintain a steady exercise routine and schedule is an absolute game-changer.

The more likely you are to be able to perform a workout routine despite your location, the better. You never know when you might come across the need to do so. The ability to tackle fitness goals as unforeseen circumstances play out can prove to be massively beneficial. It provides individuals with physical health benefits such as a lowered risk for disease, stabilized energy, and mental health levels.

Amid the Present Pandemic

Having the ability to work out anywhere is also a great solution to staying consistent as life happens. And as it happens, a current aspect of life is affecting us all at the moment, globally. Among the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic, working out is one of our GR8EST tools for staying sane. It’s a free way to remain resilient with our self care, which we need now more than ever.

Many of us are isolated at home, and this is a blessing. Though, some of our neighbors might make the case otherwise. If slight discomfort and annoyance at your neighbors is the worst you experience during a global crisis, you’re in pretty good shape. Does that mean you shouldn’t care about your neighbors, though? Negative. Caring and being respectful of your neighbors for the greater good? Now, that’s being in excellent shape. We can all use a little extra love and courtesy right now.

So, in the name of convenience, we pass on to you these workouts that can be done quietly or indoors, at home.

1. Digital Yoga

Flexibility, strength training.

You don’t need to go out and purchase a gong or steam machine to create the serenity of a yoga class at home. Yoga is generally a quiet workout, to begin with, but make it living-room operational by participating in digital yoga. Yoga apps tend to offer guided flows, and studios everywhere are adjusting to digital trends by offering their classes, or teaching streamed live.

2. Living Room Silent Disco

Cardio.

Everyone knows at-home dance parties are a thing. If you’re anything like me, this is a regular occurrence. If you’re a lot like me, you might have a disproportionate sense of how loud music should be, according to others.

You don’t have to miss out on the incredible cardio potential of an at-home dance party for the sake of being quiet. Instead, make it a silent disco. Grab whoever’s in your company, be it a partner, friend, family member, dog, or imaginary friend. Put on headphones and jam respectively to your tunes while you dance it out.

3. Wall-Sit Circuit

Strength training, lower body, and abs.

Wall-sits are a fantastic way to engage the leg and abdominal muscles. Performing a wall-sit is simple and quiet. Begin by standing with your back facing a wall. Then, place yourself against the wall, only partially placing your weight on it.

Lower yourself into a squat position with your legs bent at a ninety-degree angle, and your back straight against the wall. Hold this position for a minute. To perform a wall-sit circuit, choose walls in your home that you can do wall-sits on, and assign them numerical value for how long you’ll hold the sit on each. Then, complete them all, repeating 3-4 times.

4. Resistance Bands

Strength and resistance training.

Resistance bands are the real MVP when it comes to on-the-go training. They are effective for a low-impact exercise that still works to target muscle groups with adjustable tension. This is ideal for anyone who is trying to get the force of weights without slamming equipment around. Resistance bands can be used for singular exercises as well as in-circuit form. What’s even more convenient are the many types that have been created with diverse stretching capacity and resistance.

5. Quiet Plyos

Cardio, strength training.

Plyometrics are a highly effective way to burn fat and get the blood pumping. Often utilized in boot camp-like workout settings, they are hardly known for being a quiet exercise. They physically involve jumping with the highest amount of exertion possible. If you’re in an apartment, you might quickly become the source of someone’s complaint. However, it is commonly misconceived that explosiveness must entail loudness.

Avoid making noise during a box (or chair) jump by focusing on staying light on your feet and applying the tension to your muscles when you exert. This can be practiced with mind to muscle connection. This is how plyos should be done in general as to avoid too much pressure on the joints or feet.

A Note from GR8NESS

These suggestions are mine, but I can assure you, just about any workout without equipment can be mimicked in some way at home. Feel free to get creative, but remember to practice good form and nutrition to support your exercise. Look at you, keeping your cool, and heating it up, all at once. You’re doing GR8.
