Weight lifting to lose weight at home can be sometimes surprising because you don’t realize that you are exercising but you do. They say you don’t really need to hit the gym nowadays just to lose weight because there is so much housework that needs to be done at home. It will be a waste of time and money. Well, I partially do agree that those sleeping muscles need to move more in order to get into shape. They say that when you are doing housework, only your arms are moving. This is why for some, the gym is still the best option to tone those muscles and get rid of unnecessary fat. Maybe this is a myth. You can get all the workout your body needed in the comfort of your own home.
For starters (who haven’t started yet to think about losing some weight), observe all the parts of your body that move when doing the laundry. Sure washing machines do all the trick but it wouldn’t hurt to stylize once in a while. If you are used to doing this sitting down, try standing up while picking the clothes from the floor. Try lifting all the damp clothes especially bedsheets. Don’t forget to note if you are lifting properly. Make sure your stomach muscles are doing all the work and the arms are just something you use to hang the clothes on. The muscles from the back of the knee should be working too. Another thing you can try is to change the position of the furniture. Not only it can help you lose weight by constant lifting and pushing, you get to exercise your creativity too. You can do this weekly or twice a week. You will never get tired of how your home interior looks and for this reason alone, again there is less need to go out just to feel different even for a day. That can happen in the comfort of your own if you really don’t have the luxury of time to unwind and rest.
So how can weight lifting at home help you lose some weight? If you have kids, another thing you can try at home is to workout while carrying the kids on your back or above your arms or legs. If you are going to be the one to teach them all how to ride a bike, that is a golden opportunity for weightlifting because you get to carry the bike, the kid and you also get to walk. That is already a whole body work out and the kids will love you as an added bonus.
If you have elders at home who can no longer stand up, it would also be nice to work out if you will occasionally help the family nurse lift them from the bed if they needed to go to the bathroom or somewhere in the house. Even helping your family can be a weight lifting for you which in the end helps you to lose your weight.
You see there are really a lot of errands that needed to be done in the house. You will never run out of opportunities to do weightlifting. Do this for a month or two and it’s impossible for you not to get the desired results. You will also be loved dearly by your home buddies. When you are loved, you will be more relaxed and you know it helps in losing weight or staying fit and healthy too.
