Training at home: space and equipment
To perform a good workout at home it is essential to have adequate space for its realization, that is, we may need a relatively large space, where we can move easily and comfortably, but at the same time, it is advisable that it is a private space, without distractions that may interrupt the routine.
Thus, it is not advisable to train in the kitchen or in the living room if they are the busiest and most crowded places, because it is best that for a certain time we can concentrate on the training without anyone or anything hindering the course of it.
On the other hand, to achieve an effective workout, we may need some basic equipment to work the whole body.
We may need a cardiovascular machine, of which we have already spoken before, so you should choose the most suitable for you.
Or, we can resort to more economical sports objects that also allow us to burn calories at home as a skipping rope or a step if we do not have a ladder that we can go up and down several times.
Also, we will need objects to work the muscles, among them, some we have already mentioned when we told you the basics to set up a mini-gym at home.
That is to say, you can use dumbbells, elastic bands, or tongs to work forearms to a fitball, balls, kettlebells, or others.

Once we get the space and equipment to train at home, the difficulty lies in the fact that we are in a place full of distractions and immersed in the routine of our home, so that more than once we can overlook the possibility of exercising.
