Home exercising is the easiest way to stay fit


Pushups - Home Training ExercisesIntroduction
Exercising at home is usually the last resort for people that do not have the time to go to a health club. These exercises usually consist of bodyweight movements but with the right basic equipment such as:
  • An exercise ball
  • Exercise bands
  • Dumbbells (get the 'dial a weight' variety)
  • An in door chin-up bar
These simple and somewhat cheap items will help you do everything you can do at a gym in your home.
