There are no excuses. With only two chairs you can train the upper part of your body!
Not having training equipment at home is no longer an excuse to give up on your workout. Don't worry, your house is a gym and you have the tools. You just don't know it yet.
Training at home can be very comfortable. It's probably a more practical way than going to the gym. Getting started in your familiar environment also makes it easier to commit to a routine. No battling cold or rain to get to the gym, no queues for the shower, no need to carry a heavy bag with your gym clothes all day long, no fees.
There are some recommendations on how to train chest muscles using two chairs. If you've been training at home for months, and it looks like you will be doing it for another few months, it is time to improve your routines.
Effective home chest workout: Using only two chairs
Chest work is divided into three areas, more focused on the shoulders, more on the upper pectorals and the lower part.
Tips for training pectorals at home with 2 chairs:
One-handed push-ups: Place your hand on the floor in a plank position, with one hand on the floor and the other on the bottom of the chair, and start doing the push-ups. Ten with each arm.
- Push-ups: You put your hands on the seats of the chairs, lift your whole body until it is almost horizontal, and start doing the push-ups and pull-downs with all your strength in your arms. 10 repetitions. If you find you can't, use foot support.
- Push-ups on chairs: With your feet on the seat of the chair you start doing push-ups, but each time you do one, you move your hands a little bit, opening and closing spaces. One push-up with your arms wide open, another with your arms tightly closed. Like that, up to 10 repetitions.
To train at home you just need to be willing and master the technique of each exercise to avoid injuries. There are many people who have taken advantage of confinement to train at home and be healthy.
