New Year, New You! The Best of B&M's New Fitness Range
17 January 2020
New year, new you! After a busy Christmas period, you may have put on a couple of pounds (haven’t we all?!)
So no doubt you’ll be keen to lose a bit of weight and trim down this month. However, you may not be aware of any home workouts, or have any equipment to help you along your way.
B&M’s brand new range of fitness equipment is ideal for you to get the body you’re after in 2020!
Bring the Gym into Your Home
A yoga mat is used for – yes, you guessed it – doing yoga. However, it can also be used for a range of workouts, like sit ups and crunches.
Lay your mat out in a comfortable space at home and get to work with different sets of crunches. Bicycles, where you lie on your back with feet in the air and ‘cycle’, is another excellent exercise to complete in the comfort of your own home.
A 'plank' is also excellent for working your core. Rest on your elbows and toes, keeping your back and legs straight. Hold for one minute. You may think that sounds easy, but just wait until you try it!
B&M Top Tip: An Anti Burst Gym Ball also provides a different level of resistance for your core to work against. You can still do similar crunches & sit ups on it.
A number of exercises can be done at home to tone your muscles and trim your body. Using an Active Toning Band around your legs, you can perform some squats. Squat jumps can even be useful with the toning band.
Side steps and lunges, working against the resistance, is a great way to tone up.
Using the larger Resistance Toning Band, you can strengthen your shoulders and arms. Stand straight with the band underneath your feet, holding either end.
Pull it straight into the air both in front and to the side of you. It will tone and strengthen your shoulders, which is ideal for working the muscles further down your arms.
Performing arm curls in the same standing position is an easy workout for your biceps, too.
B&M Top Tip: Attach these Ankle Weights while you exercise for even more of a challenge! You're moving and lifting extra weight without even knowing it.
