If you are into sports in Dubai and Abu Dhabi you are at risk of injury unless you train correctly. Pilates is a great way to ensure you body is aligned well and all your muscles work in co-ordination.
Training at home in Dubai, either with a male or female personal trainer is ideal if you don’t want to go to or don’t have the time to visit the gym.
For at home training in Dubai having access to fitness equipment doesn’t need to be a problem – body weight training exercises can help.
Bodyweight training can also be used for the times you are not with your PT or Fitness coach in Dubai.
The top 10 bodyweight training methods below are all achievable with little or no fitness equipment.
The squat is a natural movement, one that we use in everyday life so it’s not difficult to do
Doing squats daily will work the entire body but emphasis is placed on the quads, glutes and hamstrings. The core gets a workout too as the torso is upright.
Everyone knows how to do a push-up (or press-up). Push-ups are a great upper body exercise with different variations to make it easier or harder depending on your personal ability.
Push-ups are also great for building a strong core. If you are new to exercise and training you can do an easy version which is a standing wall push-up or even on your knees.
Doing planks has become one of the best known ways to define and work on your core muscles. It has some effect on your whole body and is a great way to stretch after a full body workout.
Lunges are easily done at home and provide a great way to work out your lower body. There are many versions of lunges too depending on your training abilities.
Jumping Jacks are a plyometric exercise and doing them regularly is also a good way to get a great cardio workout at home in Dubai. Doing jumping jacks regularly can help you with speed and agility too. If you have conditions that limit your movement there are easier variations too.
Not everyone’s the favorite exercise as it is hard but the great thing about burpees is that they combine cardio and strength into one exercise. A burpee is a complex, total-body exercise that will work your upper and lower body at the same time with a strong focus on the core.
Dips focus your bodyweight training at home on the triceps and arms. Toning the arms can be difficult for some women so doing dips regularly as part of your at home training in Dubai will help.
When we think of 6 pack abs we often think of Sit-Ups. Of course sit-ups are not the only exercise to work the abs and core but when done correctly sit-ups can really increase your abdominal strength.
There are many variations including crunches.
To get to grips with sit-ups and ensure you are doing them correctly ask your personal trainer or gym coach.
This exercise combines the difficulty of a plank, deep core stabilization and alternating knee drives towards your chest. The knee drives also increases your heart rate, which is the perfect way to flatten your abs and burn calories.
The lying hip raise (also called a bridge) will strengthen your glutes and hamstrings, while also working your abdominals, back and inner thighs.
