Working on your fitness and exercise might be the last thing on your mind, but The Doctors and fitness expert Jennifer Jacobs are here to remind everyone staying active during these times is more important than ever.
Dr. Ian Smith explains when we keep our bodies moving (along with good sleep and nutrition) it helps to improve our mental wellbeing and can also help the body fight off getting sick. And if your gym is closed, this does not mean you have to stop working out.
Jennifer shares these at-home moves that will help you keep that body moving.
Wakeup Bounce: First thing in the morning, she says to play your favorite song for 3 to 5 minutes and bounce on the balls of your feet to help get your blood flowing.
Strengthening with a towel: Place a towel on the floor and then move it up, back, and to the side with your foot, which will help to tone your core. She suggests doing this 30 seconds to a minute with each foot.
Take it to the couch: Instead of just sitting on the couch, Jennifer shares how it can help you exercise, with squats on the edge of couch or tricep dips, which will both help with building strength.
