A HOME GYM IS A CONVENIENT AND EFFECTIVE WAY FOR TEENS TO BUILD MUSCLE AT HOME. TEENAGE WEIGHT TRAINING PROGRAMS SHOULD INCLUDE ISOLATION EXERCISES AND WEIGHT LIFTING. THIS WILL HELP DEVELOP MUSCLE SIZE AND STRENGTH.
ANY TEEN THAT WANTS TO INCREASE ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE SHOULD FOCUS ON GAINING OR TONING MUSCLES AND BURNING FAT. STRENGTHENING BONES AND INCREASING FLEXIBILITY SHOULD BE A FOCAL POINT AS WELL. BELOW ARE SOME ADDITIONAL ADVANTAGES OF HAVING A HOME GYM FOR TEENAGE ATHLETES.
MORE EFFECTIVE WORKOUTS
As an athlete you’re bound to find that your body is getting used to the same workout. When this happens, try changing up how many reps and sets you do in a given time frame. Changing exercises can help you break through plateaus. This helps stimulate your muscles in different ways.
Home gyms allow you to switch your routine on demand. Waiting for equipment at a crowded gym can hamper your ability to workout efficiently. Having equipment at your disposal allows you to keep a tight schedule, as well change it up when the time calls for it.
FAMILIES AND TEENAGE ATHLETES CAN WORKOUT TOGETHER
Teenage athletes should engage in at least an hour of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day. Moderate-to-vigorous exercise is aerobic and includes activities like running or bicycling. Mixing in bone strengthening exercises like jumping jacks or circuit resistance training can be highly beneficial as well.
The key is to get as much activity into your life on a daily basis, no matter how old you are. Even 10 minutes a day walking on a treadmill can be useful. Working out at least 3 days per week as an older adult can increase mobility and help prevent falls.
If you are not as mobile as you used to be and have a teenage athlete in the house, consider investing in a home fitness room. Everyone will love being able to exercise whenever they want.
TEENAGE ATHLETES & HOW TO ELIMINATE EXCUSES
It is easy to fall into the trap of making excuses. Committing to working out at home limits those excuses. There are no worries about who’s watching or what you’re wearing. You never have to worry if a class is full or which machine will be available.
It’s easy for a teenage athlete to get a quick workout in since all they have to do is walk across the hall or to the garage. It’s never too cold or snowy outside for exercising at home
