While each weekday should be about a dedicated exercise programme designed as per your fitness goals and needs, the weekends can spell a different story. Don't compromise on rest and recovery time, but try out some alternative workouts! Here are some ideas:
You can perform simple stretches, work on mobility and strength exercises using the towel. These exercises keep the joints healthy and muscles supple and improve blood circulation. These workouts include various exercises like side stretches, standing twists, front shoulder raises, static triceps extensions, and even bicep curls - all with just a towel as equipment.
Towel exercise #1: Neck stretches - Did you ever imagine that you can in fact do a bunch of different neck exercises with just a towel wrapped around your head right after your hair wash? Just by leaving the towel wrap on your head, perform effective neck exercises such as head tilts and head clocks in both directions. Keep the rotations controlled and slow as shaking your head around vigorously can make you dizzy.
Towel exercise #2: Rowing exercise - Simple rowing exercises by using a towel at home will improve the strength in the muscles of the upper back that are responsible for proper posture.
- Wrap the towel around a pillar, a sturdy door handle, hook or bar (on the window grill?).
- Holding both the ends of the towel place your feet 12 inches away from the pillar. Stand upright and extended your arms.
- Now, pull your body and lean forward towards the pull.
- Tuck your abs and squeeze the shoulder blades together at the top.
- Slowly return to the starting position and repeat for 10 to 15 repetitions.
