4 Workouts You Can Do in Your Apartment

Apartments might not seem like the best place for a kick-abs workout. Then again, have you seen some of the stuff you can do in relatively small spaces? People have been solving this problem for decades.

When your living area and spare time are limited — especially if you’re living in an apartment — try these exercises that are simple, quiet and great for your health.

Ladders to Save Time

Ladder workouts help you pack a lot of work into a short amount of time. In a ladder routine, you do many sets, starting with high reps, then doing fewer reps with each set thereafter.

A wide variety of exercises can be part of your ladder setup, including dips, lunges and mountain climbers. You can add biceps curls, shoulder presses and lat raises if you have access to dumbbells.

Using Your Body Weight

Your body weight is a terrible thing to waste. Try using it to your advantage with a series of exercises that put your pounds to good use!

Classic exercises such as supermans, pushups and calf raises are fantastic, but they only scratch the surface of using your body weight to build strength.

Yoga, Please

Yoga’s massive popularity is rooted in real results. Many people find vast benefits in the increased strength, flexibility and peace often associated with yoga.

There are hundreds of poses to explore, including well-known ones such as Plank, Downward Facing Dog, Tree, Bridge, Bound Angle, Side Plank, Crow, Wheel, and Seated Forward Fold.

One more tip: When time is of the essence, consider poses that help you work several parts of the body all at once.

To the Core

Sensational abs are about much more than looking great at the beach. Better abs translate into a stronger core, which helps prevent injuries all over your body.

The list of potential ab exercises for your routine is dizzying, so do yourself a favor and pick only a few to commit to before getting started.
