6 Exercising Tools To Improve Your Fitness

What do you think about your own fitness levels? Do they need improving or do you think that you need to do more than just walking down the shops every couple of days? Exercising doesn’t have to be hard work if you don’t want it to be so this is why I want to show you a few Easy Fitness Routines that anybody can do and easily fit them into your busy lifestyles.

The world is a busy place these days and some of us haven’t got time to exercise regularly which makes it hard to keep that body of yours in shape.

Of course you have time to do some easy fitness routines!!!

According to a source online, nearly one-third of the world’s population explination about what BMI is from NHS Choicesis either overweight or obese!  Do you even know how many people that is?

It’s more than 10 people I can tell you…

I’m not quite sure how they came to that result though as I haven’t had anybody come round to my house to take my measurements and weigh me.

Unless they did it while I was sleeping


Obesity Worldwide

Now contrary to popular belief, the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is not the most obese populated country in the world, they are 18th on the list but I bet you will be quite shocked to hear which countries are in the top 10.

Top 10 obese countries in the world

  1. AMERICAN SAMOA
  2. NAURU
  3. COOK ISLANDS
  4. TOKELAU
  5. TONGA
  6. SAMOA
  7. PALAU
  8. KIRIBATI
  9. MARSHALL ISLANDS
  10. KUWAIT

How many did you get right?

This isn’t a list you should be proud of getting into the top 10.  Some of the people may say it’s glandular and that they exercise regularly and they only eat a salad for each meal….I’m afraid I am going to have to call BULLSHIT on 99% of the answers and the remaining 1% I apologize if I offended you.

Let’s pop over to the other end of the scale wherein some of these countries they have problems with money and famine.

Top 10 countries with the least obese problems

  1. ETHIOPIA 
  2. BANGLADESH
  3. NEBAL
  4. ERITREA
  5. MADAGASCAR
  6. VIETNAM
  7. DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO
  8. INDIA
  9. CAMBODIA
  10. AFGHANISTAN 

In some of these countries, they don’t have much chance to get obese but some actually have a really healthy lifestyle and eating habits.

Maybe these 20 countries should swap places to live for a year

 Routine, Routine, Routine

A healthy balanced diet is important but we don’t all stick to it so exercising regularly should be top of your priorities keeping both your health and your mind as it should be.  You don’t need that much time to exercise and do some easy fitness routines so if you have a few minutes spare in the morning’s before work or late at night when your favourite tv show is on, just get into a habit of doing the same exercises and you will soon be back to your fighting weight.


Routines for you

Here I will be showing you 6 very easy fitness routines that you can do in the comfort of your own home so you can do them whenever you have a few spare minutes.  One thing I will say though is that the quicker you get into a routine doing these exercises the quicker you will be fitting into those skinny jeans that you bought in the sale last year.

DONT FORGET TO TURN UP THE VOLUME ON THE VIDEO’S BELOW


 1. SkippingWoman holding a skipping rope

According to the British Skipping Association, 10 minutes of skipping is just the same as 45 minutes of jogging or running a mile in 8 minutes (I know what I would prefer to do) before you say anything……

I couldn’t belive it was a real association either

Here are some benefits of using a jump rope

  • It’s ideal for any fitness levels
  • Improves flexibility
  • Improves coordination and balance
  • Works your abdominals, legs, shoulders, and arms
  • It can burn up to 1300 calories an hour

Here comes the best benefit…

  • Once you have purchased a jump rope it’s always FREE!!

2. Agility ladder workoutagility ladder

Not the ladders builders use to get up to fix things  (although that will keep you fit) this is a rope type ladder that you can roll out anywhere in your home, the hallway would be ideal.  The easy fitness routines are endless using the agility ladder from sideway shuffles to hopping or skipping through the rungs but I will suggest if you haven’t worked with this before that you walk through it first then gradually build up the pace till you feel comfortable.

Here are the benefits of using the agility ladder

  • Strengthens joints, tendons, and ligaments
  • Improves your coordination and focus
  • Will make you a stronger and faster runner
  • Brilliant for your heart health

3. Plyometric Boxeswoman jumping onto a plyometric box

I wouldn’t use just any old box for these exercises, you need one that I built to withstand a lot of jumping onto so a cardboard box is a big fat NO.  There are many routines that you can do with this box, plyo push ups, jump squats and box jumps to name few.  These exercises are designed for maximim muscle force in a small period of time so keep your reps low as it can get a bit intense.

Here are the benefits of using the plyometric box

  • Increases your leg muscle strength
  • Boosts your running speed
  • Improves coordination and agility
  • Improves endurance and stamina

4. Rubber medicine ballwoman holding a rubber medicine ball

One of the oldest forms of strength conditioning dating back to the ancient Greeks and yet it’s so simple but so effective if done right.  A weighted ball that comes in different sizes and styles and weighing between 2 and 25 pounds.  Depending on what exercise you are doing depends in which muscles get the benefits.

Here are the benefits of using a medicine ball

  • Improves your health (as does all types of exercising)
  • Improves balance and coordination
  • Strengthens your core
  • Gives you explosive power and speed
  • Increases your muscle power

5. Resistance Bandscoloured resistance bands

Basically, these are just reinforced thin rubber bands with handles on them that come in a variety of resistance depending on your strength.  All the exercises you can do with these you can do without them but you will get more benefit from a little resistance.  Such a simple exercise tool but really effective.

The benefits of using resistance bands

  • You can literally use them to work any muscle
  • Strengthens your bones and muscles
  • Improves balance
  • Reduces joint pains
  • Improves speed of movement
  • Will make your body more elastic (I don’t mean like the guy from the film “The Fantastic Four”)

6. Ankle Weightswoman using ankle weights to exercise

They come in different weights and are attached to the ankles.  They can be added to any workout to enhance the “easy exercise routines” that you may be used to.  Wearing them whilst swimming, jogging or even walking can really improve your fitness but I wouldn’t advise wearing them everytime you workout as you won’t really feel the benefits that they gave you the last time you trained.

The benefits of wearing ankle weights

  • Increases endurance
  • Tones your legs
  • Strengthens the muscles in your legs
  • Improves your running speed

These are great exercises to do. I do plyometrics, rope, and resistance bands. I have to include some agility training and want to do some medicine ball exercises. Have you considered kettle bells as well?

Awesome post.
I note that the obese countries are predominantly Pacific Island. I woulder have they always been that way or is it since the introduction of Western-style foods, KFC McD’s etc?
I am from New Zealand and the early Maori lived on Birds, Fish and vegitables. I believe they were a lean warrior race until colonisation.
Anyway thank you for these great ideas, I am obese and need to look seriously at your exercises detailed here.

Oh most definite the fast food chains have alot to answer for all the obesity in the world but it’s down to the individual to maintain their health. I’m sorry to hear that you are going through some weight problems but if you stick to a healthy diet and follow some of these exercises you will soon be doing great. Good luck
Let me know if there’s anything I can help with

Hi, I really want to jump rope efficiently as much as possible.
Do regular techniques do the job just fine? Or should I learn techniques like double unders?

Reply

Just doing half hour of regular jump rope techniques will do the same job as any other, I just wanted to show you other techniques just incase you got bored 🙂

Wow I actually learned new things in this post. I’m glad that we can do most of these exercises from the comfort of our own home (except jump roping and using Plyometric Boxes in you live in the top floor of an apartment) instead of paying for expensive gym memberships which I think are overrated unless you are really bulking up.

I actually didn’t renew my gym membership as I got fed up with the long commute to get there and being there for 2-2.5 hours everyday and instead I bought a used elliptical machine and some dumbbells so I workout out from home and it’s so much better now. When it comes to exercise I think you have to find things that suits your lifestyle. If you like watching TV at home at lot go get a treadmill so you watch and exercise at the same time. They have the same thing at the gym!

The gym is not for everyone that’s for sure it’s all about finding what suits your lifestyle like you said. I think it’s brilliant that you have got your own equipment at home and are doing regular exercise, keep up the good work 🙂

I recently, about a month ago, started jumping rope and I can already feel some positive difference in my body. I feel more alert during the day and I don’t run out of breath whenever I take a flight of stairs. What I like most about jumping rope is that I can do it in any time in my house. And it’s a totally inexpensive exercise routine to implement.

Jumping rope is very good for your fitness even though it’s just a bit of rope, I hope you stick to it and your fitness will get even better. Good luck

Great variety of short workout routines! The videos are perfect for demonstrating the exercises. Not a lot of expensive equipment needed and you can do the routines at home. I’m really surprised the U.S is not in the top 10 obese countries!

I’m glad you liked this post Sandra, exercising hasn’t got to be expensive and easily done at home 🙂
