Full body workouts make for a good option for someone who enjoys training at home. Also, according to the study, short periods of intense exercise can be just as effective, sometimes more so than longer workouts that you do. Here are some full body exercises as suggested by Puneet Rehani, Physiotherapist at AktivHealth:
With your feet hip-width apart, take a large step forward with your left foot. Plant the foot, then slowly bend the left knee to a 90-degree angle with your back knee lightly touching the ground. Push up with your front leg to return to the starting position, then repeat on the other side. Lunges are very effective.
Push-ups are a compound exercise that involves your arms, shoulders, chest, back and abdominals.
Lie on your stomach with your elbows on the floor in front of you, then slowly rise up onto your toes and straighten your body like a plank. It tightens the deepest core muscles which in turn help to improve strength, balance, co-ordination and most importantly back pain.
Squats are one of the best functional exercises that train primarily the muscles of the thighs.
