SOLUTION ONE

Use an ab roller to increase core strength

One of the most simple yet most effectively designed pieces of workout equipment is the ab roller. Invented in 1994 by fitness instructor Don Brown, the ab roller is small enough to fit anywhere but powerful enough to make your abs scream for mercy.

Since being invented there are a lot of options on the market. You should be able to find a highly rated ab roller for under $30 without a problem.

You can use an ab roller on carpet or hard flooring. If you are using on a hard surface put a towel or a blanket underneath your knees to make the workout more comfortable.

If you do not usually work on your core take it slow. Start by only rolling halfway down and build your strength before going all the way out with the roller.

SOLUTION TWO

Buy resistance bands to workout lower body muscles

Resistance bands are an amazing piece of equipment that you can level up to increase your workouts. If you are just starting out the lowest level resistance band can still double your output. Make a goal to work level up to the hardest band in your set by switching up every two weeks.

Try these workouts to get started:

Resistance bands are great for your arms as well! 

SOLUTION THREE

Put a chin-up bar in your doorway for arms, shoulders and core

chin-up bar is a not only a great arm workout, but it also does not take a lot of time to see results. You could spend under 60 seconds a day doing chin-ups and you would see amazing results in just weeks. If you do not have door moldings you can also try this chin-up bar option that screws into the doorway.

Different ways to use a chin up bar

  • Pull up: Hands facing out, pull your body weight up until your chin is above the bar. Works your biceps, pecs and back
  • Chin ups: Hands facing in, pull your body weight up until your chin is above the bar. Works your biceps, pecs and back
  • Knee raise: Place your hands facing out and pull your knees up to your chest. Works your core and triceps.
  • L grips: Hang from the bar and raise your legs to a 90 degree position and hold. Works core and quads

 

If you are new to doing chin-ups you can start by pulling up a quarter way three times and build up to one full pull up.
