Home Workout Routine for Young Athletes

Taking time off from youth sports during holiday season is indeed a good move. The time off helps kids get some perspective, relax, rejuvenate and freshen up with new zeal. But at the same time, it is essential that kids stay in the grove, they do some sort of workout at home daily so that they do not lose touch and can join back with energy and enthusiasm.

Here are some easy home exercises that will help kids with full body conditioning. None of these exercises require any equipment, and can be done anytime anywhere.

Start with warm up. Do Jumping Jacks.



Repeat for 30 seconds

Arms Rotation

Rotate arms clockwise and anti-clockwise, twenty counts each.

Jogging Backwards

Make sure the path is clear. Jogging backwards helps with balance and speed.

Walking Knee Hugs

Take a step, raise a leg, hug its knee with both arms. Do this with the other leg now while you take a step ahead. Walk 20 steps like this.



Lunges

Major muscles of the body are activated. Try this also while walking ahead.



Squats

Overall body conditioning.




Plank to Squat

Begin with the plank position. Jump forward to the frog or squat position with hands still touching the ground. Then jump back.



Pushups

Get into the plank position. With your back straight and core tight, push your body up and down.  Focus on your breathing. Inhale as you go down, exhale as you go up.



Depending on the intensity and time of your workout, you can add inchworm, burpees, star jumps etc. too.
