One of the best ways to stay healthy, slow down the aging process, and support the immune system is to enjoy a workout. Ironically and unfortunately these days getting to the gym may be easier said than done. Not to worry, you can use the following exercises to get a workout at home, that’s almost as good as anything you can do at the gym.

The first exercise you might want to try are chair push ups, which are great for triceps, upper back and shoulders. All you need is an armchair. From a seated position, grab the armrests and raise yourself slowly and lower yourself back down, also slowly, making sure your feet stay flat on the floor.

You can do prone rows by lying face down on a bed or bench. With arms extended over the side, while holding a gallon jug filled of water, flex your elbow and contract your shoulders as you lift the jug. First do your right arm, then your left and you’ll be building upper back muscles as well as shoulders.

For butt and hamstrings try some wall sits by leaning against a wall. Bend your knees and gradually lower your back until you’re as close to a seated position as possible. Hold for 2-3 seconds and then carefully raise yourself back up.

For chest and abs, nothing beats good old pushups. Do them slowly, going all the way up, locking elbows, and lowering body until your chin touches the floor, making sure to contract abdominal muscles as you go up and down. Try to do all three exercises 3 or 4 times a week. If you do three sets of each, the whole routine will take you less than 20 minutes.

Make sure to grab your Biomimetic Mineral Mist for a quick cool down. Spray during and after your workout for quick hydration and topical nutrition. Another way to support health and beauty from the inside out!
