As the summer is just around the corner, everyone strives to achieve the ideal "beach body." It’s simple: if you’re on the beach then, congratulations, you have a beach body. However, there is nothing wrong with wanting to get in shape and having a lean body.

Due to the current situation with the virus, there is nothing much you can do than exercise at home. So, make sure you do killer home exercises and welcome summer with a strong grip.

Stretches

A lot of people have back troubles due to the horrible posture caused by a "sitting lifestyle." Hunched posture also affects the way you perform other exercises.

To get in the adequate shape, indulge posture stretches into your daily workout routine. Child pose, cat-cow pose, and high plank are all necessary for a healthy spine.

Push-Ups

To properly do a push-up, your arms must be directly beneath your shoulders, palms on the floor with fingers facing forward. Your knees must stay off the floor and your legs should be straight, leaning on your toes.

Bend your arms and lower your upper body toward the floor until elbows are at 90 degrees. Then push your body up to the beginning position. For strong chest, arms and abdomen, do 2 sets of 15 reps.

Stomach Crunch

This exercise is ideal for building abdominal muscle strength and toning your stomach. For stomach, crunches lie on your back with your knees bent. Place your hands behind your ears.

To perform this exercise, make sure your lower back is pressed to the floor at all times. Slightly raise your shoulder blades off the floor and slowly return them to the floor. Do 2 series of 15 reps.

Shoulder Press

This is one of many exercises you’re going to need resistance band or additional weight for. To properly use a resistance band for this exercise, place it underneath your feet.

Stand tall with both arms bent by your side. Make sure fists are aligned with shoulders and that you’re firmly grasping both ends of the resistance band.

Keep your shoulders locked, and lift your arms above the head until they touch. Then as you lower your arms, widen the hand grip until you reach the starting position. Do 2 sets and 20 reps.

Lunges With Weights

Even though this exercise can be done without additional weight, it is by far more effective if done with hand weights.

Place one foot forward and hold two equals weights in both hands. As you step forward to bend your leg into a lunge, raise your arms above your head. Straight them up, then slowly return to the beginning pose. Repeat 12-24 times on each side.

Biceps Curls

This exercise isn’t as easy as it seems. Stand tall with weights in both hands. Your feet should be hip-width apart. Ensure your stomach is flat and bum squeezed during this exercise.

As you breathe in, raise your fists to your shoulders. But keep in mind that your elbows shouldn’t move. Slowly breathe out and lower your hands. Repeat 12 times and do 2 sets.

Lateral Raise

As you’ve probably done the previous exercise with ease, let’s spice it up a little bit.  The starting position is the same, but this time, instead of lifting only your forearms, you’re going to lift the arms.

Keep your hand straight. As you breathe in, raise them sideways until you reach the shoulder height, but do not move your shoulders. Do 2 sets and 12 reps.

Squats

Usually one of the most hated exercises is the squat. It’s the perfect way to shape your booty and tone your legs. There are various types of squat, here’s how to do one with weights.

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold weights in both hands that are straight in front of you. Slowly bend your knees into a squat. Do 2 sets and 15 reps.

Dumbbell Bench Press

For this exercise, you'll need a weight bench and dumbbells. But as going to the gym isn't an option right now, you can make your gym at home. Consider getting affordable home gym equipment delivered to your house, so your workout doesn’t have to be delayed.

To perform this exercise, lie on a bench with a dumbbell in each hand on the side to your shoulders. Straight your arms above your chests then slowly bring them down. Repeat 12 times.

Jump Squats

To shake up your body, this cardio exercise is great for leg toning.

Just as the title says, you jump from a squat. Make sure your weight is leaning on heels and when you jump back do not stiffen your knees. Keep your back straight and repeat this exercise 24 times.
