I want to strength train, but I can’t afford to join a gym. What can I do at home?
You can strength train in your home with no weights. Isometric exercises are great! Isometric exercises are contracting your muscles in a static pose. An example of this would be flexing your bicep, to show off your guns(like Popeye did for Olive Oil). Isometrics strengthen and tone your muscles. I use isometrics in my Grace class and participants love it! The nice thing about isometric exercise is that it is very easy on your joints. To get a full body workout using isometrics simply go through each major muscle group of your body tighten it up for 8-30 seconds, rest and repeat. Major muscle groups would be chest, back, abdominal, buttocks and legs. There are contraindicates for isometric exercises like high blood pressure. I recommend that you speak with your doctor before starting an exercise program, especially if you have any health risks. Strength training can be so much more then the gym. Isometrics is just one form of strength training. Strength training is important for your health.
