Simple Exercises To Complete In A Smaller Apartment

Harborside Village Quiet ExercisesIf you want to exercise more now to either pass the time or relieve stress, you can do several simple exercises that don’t require much equipment or space in your apartment. Continue reading to learn which exercises you can do without requiring much space and without disturbing your neighbors

Leg And Arm Reach 

This move is a great balance challenge, and it works your glutes and hamstrings. 

  • Raise your right arm in front of you as you balance on your left leg. 
  • Lift your right leg behind you while lowering your torso until your leg and torso are parallel to the ground.
  • Gradually return to a standing position. 

Overhead Squats

These straightforward exercises work your glutes and arms and occupy only a little space. To increase your heart rate without jumping up and down and disturbing neighbors, you can increase the speed of your repetitions.

  • Your toes should be slightly turned out when you stand with your feet broader than shoulder-width apart. 
  • With your hands shoulder-width apart, take hold of a towel wrapped up and hoist it above your head. 
  • Avoid allowing your knees to extend past your toes when you squat. 

Planks And Pushups 

Plank and pushup exercises are total-body workouts. To increase the difficulty of this exercise, squeeze your leg muscles throughout the exercise. 

  • Get into a pushup position but create a “plank” by bending your elbows and resting your weight on your forearms. Your body should make a straight line from shoulders to ankles.
  • Brace your core by contracting your abs, then press your body up into the top of a pushup by extending each arm one at a time. 
  •  Pause before reversing the movement and returning to your elbows.

Single-Leg Wall Squats

  • This move may look easy, but it targets your glutes, core, quads, and hamstrings. 
  • Stand with your back to a wall and your feet hip-width apart about two feet in front of you. 
  • When your knees are at a 90-degree angle, lower your body by bending them. 
  • Extend your right leg out, with the shin parallel to the floor. Hold this for one or two seconds, and then switch sides.
