The COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily shut down normal life. Many businesses are closed during this time in an effort to slow the spread of the virus and protect the health of their employees and consumers.

Even though our doors are now re-open, we are still dedicated to helping serve our clients during this time. It is especially important to remain active in order to further safeguard your short and long-term health. Exercise is not only good for your physical health but also your mental health. Derailing human routine, coupled with social distancing can inflict daily mental struggles such as depressive episodes. Therefore, we are unrolling an “At-Home” series of localized workouts that can be done inside your home, in order to strengthen your body, loosen your muscles, and reduce stress load. 

We’re going to start with the core — where a majority of bodily movements stem from. This circuit of 11 core exercises is broken down into two sections: ball-centered movements and floor-centered movements. 

Ball-Assisted Exercises: 

  • Hip Dips (into a bridge) 
  • Leg Raise 
  • Wall Squats
  • Ab Crunch 
  • Plank 

Floor Exercises: 

  • Pelvic Tilt 
  • Leg Lift 
  • Bridge 
  • Cat-Cow 
  • Bird-Dog 
  • Dead Bug 

This circuit of exercises will work the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen — promoting better balance and stability. The core also plays a critical role in maintaining good posture and a healthy back. When an individual’s core becomes overly weak, other muscles have to compensate, causing the body to fall out of natural alignment, which can affect bodily functions like digestion. By prioritizing your core strength, you are protecting your overall health.
