Designate a corner in your home as your workout spot. You really only need a space the size of a yoga mat to have a bunch of options for an effective and efficient workout.
Dress like you’re actually going to the gym. You’ll feel more like exercising when you’re wearing athletic clothes.
Use props to improve your training and work out deep muscles. They will also diversify your workout routine.
Get pumped up during your workout with songs that make you feel strong, powerful, and like you can do anything.
Resistance training (using equipment, such as resistance bands) is important. It is going to help keep muscle mass or at least slow down the loss.

You need to find it helpful to get yourself in the right mindset for working out – especially when you’re home alone and probably feeling lazy. Tell yourself that for the next 25 minutes – or however long – you are focusing on nothing but yourself.
Just because you’re at home and no-one’s technically watching, that’s still not a reason to slack off.
In fact, pushing yourself in the moments when you’d really like to give up is where you can make huge mental and fitness gains. Try to make sure you’re not going too easy on yourself or taking more breaks than perhaps are technically needed. Challenge yourself! You can handle it!
