Hi people! I hope you enjoyed your December holiday and Chinese New Year as much as I did.
Due to the festive season, I have been lazing around, having fun, not having adequate sleep or either doing nothing at home. I later realize that my fats percentage has increased, at the same time I was reluctant to hit the gym. Walking in heels of strolling or shopping does help to tone the legs effortlessly for real, I felt muscle sore on my gluteus, quadriceps, and calf during the process but of course, there's a price to pay which is getting a blister.

Imagine converting the traveling time to the gym on doing something more productive, in a month I could have saved approximately 40 hours, some transport cost and, gym entrance/membership. Hence, I decided to workout at home during lazy days, or on times where I do not have time to fit gym into my schedule. Best thing is I can wear anything I want and do not have to doll up as I am at the comfort of my own home.

Listed are my favourite exercise if I were to do a fast, simple and, effective workout at home:
  • 10 Minute Abs Workout
  • Bent Row
  • Clean and Jerk
  • Deadlift
  • Dumbbell Extensions
  • Lying Hip Abduction
  • Overhead Press
  • Sumo Squats
Of course, I don't do them all in a day, I switch them up here and there depending on my mood. Always remember it is no good to spend too much time on a workout, say more than an hour.

Stability is the key to an effective workout hence, the most basic equipment we need at home is a mat. After coming into contact with all kinds of yoga mat I realize that NatTone Exercise/Yoga Mat is one sports equipment that is worth investing on.

Here's what I have discovered on my own after using it for a period of time:
  • Pros
    • The first impression while unpacking, no nasty smell
    • Easy to roll out, comes with travelling bag
    • Firmness is there, no need for yoga paw or whatever you call it gripping gloves/sock/cloth
    • Pressure test pass, mat will not sink even when doing weights exercise
  • Cons
    • Not ideal for traveling as mat is heavy to carry around, however, it is portable and come with a traveling bag

Not a cardio bunny.
I will prefer doing weight compared to running, the most I would go for cardio will be either High-Intensity Interval training or Muay Thai, unless I have no choice but to run. I love weight lifting because it helps to burn fats constantly, at the same time it also helps to build muscle and strength.
