Exercise ideas for kids at home

“Fit is not a destination, it is a way of life.”

Usually, when we stay at home, and there is nothing much to do, eating a lot of food becomes our favorite habit.  We almost forget about maintaining our diet, eating healthy, and staying fit. Parents and kids both have struggled to maintain a healthy eating schedule.

And since the lockdown is on its edges, our healthy habits are themselves taking their day-offs. This unwanted pause from “THE RUN” has worried parents that children’s physical fitness will be affected and they might fall into the constant habit of overeating.

Kids have different requirements when it comes to the evolution of their physical and mental needs, especially before puberty. Their minds and bodies are transforming, so they are just in the initial phase of exploring, how much food is sufficient for their body, and how often they should exercise. 

Families being stuck at home due to the lockdown and trying hard to ensure that their kids stay physically and mentally fit. We can convince an adult to do exercises, but doing the same with kids can be a challenging task. Because young kids always love to do fun, entertaining activities.

But when it comes to doing exercises regularly, they consider it as a boring and exhausting deal. So the main challenge is to convert this creepy-looking task to an exciting one. Training sessions should take this into account in their daily routine and focus on representing movements by letting kids play and having fun with them.

Kids must also love and enjoy what they are doing, hence exercises should be fun and easy so they can have a great time doing them. Making things overly challenging will only frustrate young kids and may even raise the chances of them getting hurt or injured.

Exercises today are becoming a rising trend for adults who wish to keep themselves physically fit and active. But when it comes to kids, they need a lot of attention and motivation to even get them started and moving.

Home Workout can assist your child to be physically and mentally balanced. These can be easily done indoors or outdoors and need little-to-no equipment. While each training program explores a variety of physical skills, each hits the development of either strength, coordination, or agility, all of which are vital elements.

Fun-filled and unique activities are used in warm-ups, exercises, and games. These unconventional activities are designed to provide childrens’ neuromuscular systems with a list of challenges, thus increasing their abilities of learning.

Below, you’ll find a bunch of fun and easy-to-do exercises designed particularly for preschoolers and school-age kids. Ranging from low to high potency, each one will dare your kiddo in distinctive ways to get moving and let out their energy while fabricating strength and stamina.

Doing each of these exercises at least once a week can offer a huge lead in their physical growth.

KNEE-HIGH RUNNING

Knee-high running is often done with a celebrity ladder, which is a rope ladder that lies flat on the ground. If you don’t have one. Use another trick, place several lines on the floor, with about a foot of gap between each. The technique is to run across the lines as fast as possible. Your child must step inside each gap, so their steps will be closer than they are in a normal stride.  With each step, they should lift a knee as high as they can. It might feel a little funny, but it’s a challenging workout!

DOT DRILLS

Shape an “X” on the ground using tape, rope, or something else. Have your child jump from one section of the X to another with their feet sticking together. Come up with unique jumping patterns and inspire them to jump actively and do this fun exercise regularly. 

JUMPS

Children love to jump, which is great because jumping is a strong-muscular lower body exercise. Jumps can be integrated well with music and dancing. 

CRUNCHES

Your Kids might already be aware of the term “Crunches” as they are usually taught in their physical education classes. This core exercise not only increases strength but when done in a quick session, hits as a cardio workout as well. To make crunches even more exciting, you can turn on some fast music. Bodyweight exercises are not only for adults. They are strength-providing exercises without putting excess stress on your kid’s joints.

“Each new day is a new opportunity to improve yourself. Take it and make the most of it.
