Well, you get the idea of how simple, easy and fun it is to work out at home and reap the benefits of getting fit and in shape. Be creative to change it up but always remember it is very important to continue to progress yourself with challenge because if it becomes too easy then the muscles are not going to strengthen it self as it needs more resistance or increase repetitions to get stronger and always lead with consistency to see the real changes happen.

Outstanding effort. Following any regimen was extremely difficult during the pandemic due to movement restrictions. The ability to maintain one’s health at home may be greatly aided by this.
