Staying home is now a way of life. The dining room has become your school cafeteria, office space, break room, and classroom. Hey, at least you don’t have to worry about sitting with the cool kids during lunch because now YOU are the cool kid of your home.
At this point, you’ve probably got the home office setup and the classroom setup running pretty smoothly. But once the workday is done, there’s no gym, yoga studio, or even park you can go to that can provide you the outlet you need to burn off the day’s stress. While working out at home may not be your first option, it can carry you through these tough times.
Undoubtedly, you’ve seen the hordes of personal trainers and studios releasing live streams and virtual workouts. But what about all the other things that go along with working out and maintaining a healthy lifestyle even during quarantine? We’ve got you covered. Check out our list of at-home fitness accessories that can help you get ahead even if you’re stuck at home.
No squat bench? No dumbbells? No problem! One of the best ways to build or maintain strength is through resistance work. The Bang Energy Resistance Bands provide a solid amount of resistance to tone your hamstrings, quadriceps, and especially your glutes! There are countless videos on how to incorporate them into your workout, but it’s also as simple as slipping the band on around your knees and squatting it out till you feel the burn! These bands are durable and strong yet take up a minimal amount of room in your home. This is a great way to continue to keep your muscles working even when your activity levels are down.
Dress to Impress
Some of the most widely distributed advice during these crazy times is to always get up and get dressed. Even if the office and the classroom are downstairs, it’s recommended to always get dressed in your everyday attire so your mind switches from downtime to work mode. The same can be said for fitness. Sure, pjs are comfy but they don’t help much when it comes to getting your mind and body ready to sweat. Bang apparel is available for both men and women that will get you in the right mood and feeling ready to burn torch some calories. One of our favorite sets is the Birthday Cake Bash Bang Uniform. Cute and comfortable, this set will make you want to jump, jab, and lunge like if you weren’t in your living room.
Don’t Forget Your Protein
Being stuck at home can quickly lead to the “Quarantine 15” in no time. With little to no movement and instant accessibility to snacks, it can be easy to pack on the pounds. Instead of reaching for the bag of chips next time you’re feeling snacky, have a protein shake instead. Protein is known to be satiating enough to hold you over until your next meal. Since protein requires more energy from the body to digest it, you are burning more calories in the process. So it’s a win win in all cases. Pick up our Bang Frosted Protein Shaker and our Zero Carb SRO Whey Protein Isolate to create delicious protein shakes that can help keep you feeling full and looking great.
