While it’s nice to be able to workout in our own apartment, jumping up and down and lifting weights isn’t usually a quiet activity. We all want to be courteous to our neighbors, so it’s important to find exercises that won’t disturb those living close to you. However, there are many great workouts that require no gym equipment, and are perfect for apartment renters!
Yoga is all about finding your inner peace and calm, so naturally, it is one of the quietest workouts you can do. All you need is a yoga mat and some floor space, and you’re ready to go. There are various types of yoga videos online, ranging from flexibility and balance exercises to more intense ab workouts and body weight resistance poses. Yoga can be done at any time of day, but it is always nice to start your day with a positive mind, and end the day with a few stretches.
Another great workout to try in your apartment is low-impact circuit training. While you will have to hold off on any jumping exercises, there are plenty of other exercises to choose from, including squats, lunges, and crunches. Once again, all you need is a mat (or carpet) and your body, as no equipment is required. Do 15 reps of each, and you’ll be sure to feel the burn! Planks are also a great exercise that requires a lot of body strength, so start off with 30 seconds, that work your way up each day to see how long you can hold the pose.
If you prefer workouts that require some equipment, try a resistance band workout. They are often very affordable and enhance your workouts without adding any additional noise. You can use them to target specific muscle groups, or add them to any body-weight exercises for extra resistance.
