From our Blog
Working out at home can be difficult when you are used to having access to weights, machines, and classes at a gym. So here we have compiled some tips and modifications to some of our older workout videos to help you crush your workouts while you are stuck at home. See the videos with tips below, or the full article here: https://hachealthclub.blog/2020/03/18/how-to-crush-your-at-home-workouts/
Burnin' for You Couples workout modifications:
For Dewey's workout, you’ll need a workout buddy and something like a medicine ball. If you don’t have a medicine ball try using a pillow, bag of clothes, rolled blanket, basketball, soccer ball, volleyball, or any other round object.
2 Ladder Routines that Don't Skimp on Intensity modifications:
Charmaine’s two routines involve a couple pieces of equipment you’ll need to get creative with at home. In the first couplet, there are box jumps – while you may not have the box, you can use steps, a curb, or a step stool (make sure it is sturdy, we don’t want people to get hurt). In the second couplet, there is a barbell deadlift and pull-ups. Probably a good number of us do not have barbells at home, but you can do a bodyweight deadlift or use suitcase deadlift form and lift some of the items listed above. There aren’t as many alternatives for pull-ups at home if you don’t have a bar. Some parks are still open that have outdoor jungle gyms or you may have a swing set or playground in your neighborhood.
Take The Pain Out Of Your High-Intensity Workout modifications:
Dina’s workout is a high-intensity workout consisting of 4-5 exercises. In her video, she goes over the form and how to modify it for your ability level. Some of the exercises use dumbbells and for these, you can use any of the above-listed items if you don’t own dumbbells. If you don’t have a kettlebell and would like to do a kettlebell swing, try a jug of water, laundry detergent bottle, or fill a small backpack or drawstring bag with some objects to add weight.
Spice Up Your Pushups modifications:
Alisa shares 5 ways to spice up your push-ups. Three of the push-up variations don’t require any equipment. For the medicine ball push-ups, any reasonably dense and firm sports ball can work, such as a basketball or soccer ball. The “around the world” push-ups can be done on a curb, a box from a package in the mail, or a stack of books.
5 Exercises You Can Do On The Go Modifications:
Becky shows 5 exercises that can be done anywhere. For the decline push-up, you could put your legs on the couch, a coffee table, a chair seat, or create a pile of books. The tricep dips can be done with a firm chair, don’t use a soft seat because it will alter your form and could hurt your wrists.
