So What Now? How to Be Fit After the Pandemic
June 07, 2022
For many of us, we found it much more difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle when the pandemic hit the world. Most employees were sent to work at home as well as students who had to continue their studies through online classes. Everyone was instructed to stay at home to curb the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Of course, when you stay at home with the television and bed within reach, you will tend to fall into a sedentary lifestyle. It might not be affecting you at the moment but at some point in your life, your poor diet and lack of exercise will make your body pay. It can cause several health issues, little to severe. Some of the common health conditions caused by inactivity and poor nutrition are obesity, hyperglycemia, intestinal, breast, uterine cancers, and hypertension.
There are many ways to combat these diseases and not develop them. One of which is investing in products such as the ergonomic furniture offered by FlexiSpot. With just a few products, your life can change. You’ll be able to cultivate and maintain a lifestyle with health and wellness at the core.
Losing Weight Can be Exciting
Losing unhealthy weight and having a healthy body mass can bring you a lot of benefits such as a stimulated metabolic rate, bumped up sex, better sleep, and protection from developing heart attacks and strokes.
You won’t find maintaining a healthy weight a chore with FlexiSpot’s Vibration Plate Exercise Machine VB1. Dubbed as The Waver, this durable contraption makes vibrations across the human body. The result is an increase in muscular contractions and activation, which paves the way for a thrilling and challenging workout. It features a user-friendly touchscreen interface, LED display, and remote control to effortlessly manage the vibrating plate and change the pattern and pace according to your preference and/or fitness level and goals. The Vibration Plate Exercise Machine VB1 added to your daily exercise routine can help you achieve optimum health status.
If you are a workaholic or simply have too much work to do, then you might find it difficult to squeeze a workout into your hectic schedule. There are others who give up on exercise and take it completely out of their life because of schedule conflicts and different priorities. But innovators have addressed this problem by providing an option for employees to work while exercising. It’s so easy to pedal away in the Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair while attending client meetings and making presentations. The big brains in the FlexiSpot HQ also made the Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair work in synergy with all the standing desks offered on the FlexiSpot site. The Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair and a standing desk combination will provide you with health benefits enjoyed by people who are dedicated to standing regularly and biking simultaneously when working.
What people love as well is that they’re able to use this product even if they share their workspace with others. For example, if you make music for a living, you may produce your records in the garage or an extra room because its FlexiSpot products are whisper-quiet for every pedal stroke. Your officemates or family members won’t even know that you are working out while you’re working because it really hardly makes any sound.
Switch It Up
It is a myth that weightlifting does not help in losing excess fat compared to cardiovascular activities. If you want to be slim, your lifestyle changes must be holistic and not simply rely on cardio-centric activities.
If you want to transform your body, then weightlifting should be your go-to. It will give you a look enhancement as well as tone your physique including abs and arms. You get to explore different styles of clothes because you are more confident with your body and not conscious of how you will look in front of the camera. If you’re new to fitness, a weightlifting dumbbell is a great start.
You might also be glad to know that lifting weights won’t raise your heart rate through extreme exercises. Note that there are people who do not show fondness for heart-pumping exercises and are even advised by their doctors to refrain from such types of workouts. They can turn and benefit from weightlifting.
As you lift weights regularly, you will eventually see progress and may add to the weight gradually. Hefty barbell plates are extremely sturdy and maintain their rust-free nature, thanks to their black paint coating from the cast iron composition.
Other than weightlifting, you can also rely on your very own body weight. It is just as effective as the dumbbells and barbells in the gym. We call it plyometric exercises when you solely use your own body weight, and they are just as enjoyable and intense as a gym session that involves weights. Examples of this type of workout include sprints, squatting, push-ups, curl-ups, and using the jumping rope.
Go All Out
If you want to take your fitness to the next level, go all out and bring the gym to your house. Invest in a pull-up tower and other gym equipment to be stored in your garage or a free room in your home. It may seem like clutter for some but you will eventually thank yourself for giving in to a great home gym setup. Everyone in your household will benefit from the home gym. It’s ideal for teenagers looking to develop their muscles, helping promote growth and increased height. Since it’s all yours, you can customize the gym depending on the age of your housemates and their different needs.
After all the pain, you will definitely enjoy the rest as soon as the workout of the day is finished. Rest is a must after every session. You may want to get a full-body, deep-tissue massage to reward yourself after an exhausting workout session. Vaccinations may be on the rollout but it’s still advisable to book a home massage session instead of putting your health and safety at risk.
Don't Forget to Rest
Never take sleep for granted. You will have a better chance of reinvigorating every part of your body through a good night's sleep. Every exercise uses your muscles and causes wear and tear. This is why you will need a whole night of complete sleep for a full recovery.
Try taking melatonin pills if you ever have trouble sleeping. Listen to a sleeping podcast to quickly fall into a deep slumber. Keep your devices away from your bed because the gadget light and notifications can intervene with your goal of fully relaxing.
You may be overwhelmed to reach your fitness goals, especially if you are a newcomer, an overworked professional, or an exhausted parent. These individuals inspire FlexiSpot to produce goods that are simple to use, durable, and functional for everyday convenient living.
