Implement a proper warm up and cool-down routine into your workout. A warm up will gradually prep your cardiovascular system and increase blood flow to your muscle for the coming high intensity work of your exercise. An example of a warm up could be an easy jog on the spot for 5-10 minutes, including variations of high knees and butt-kicks or even a light cycle on a stationary bike if you have one. A cooldown is a continuation of exercise but done at a reduced intensity and/or pace, the cooldown is usually 5 minutes in duration and includes aerobic movements that help reduce heart rate at an appropriate rate. A cooldown helps regulate your blood flow after an intense workout gradually reducing blood pressure and heart rate back to baseline levels.
Don’t workout a room/garage with poor lighting and low energy. Keep yourself motivated to get to work and get your exercise in by investing in better lighting using bright white light bulbs, decorations, painting the walls and making the space yours. It can sometimes be difficult to stay motivated without the gym to go to so make your space special. Lighting is especially important to allow yourself to see your movement clearly in a mirror especially if your workout space doesn’t have mirrors.
