Doing resistance exercise can also be easy and doesn’t need to always be done in the gym with heavy weights. The resistance can just be provided by your own body weight!
Depending on your fitness levels and exercise experience, resistance exercise can be done with many different types of equipment.
- Starting with none – just your body weight to do push-ups, walking lunges, squats, jump squats or step-ups.
- Resistance bands and dumbbells are relatively cheap and can make these exercise a little more difficult – in a good way!
- Household items can even be used in place of dumbbells. For example, shoulder presses with bags of rice, or squats holding a bag of oranges.
- Gyms provide access to more advanced equipment. So a work out with machines or heavier free weights is great if you have a gym membership.
