There are many different ways to exercise effectively in your smaller apartment. Read on to learn which exercises you could do without requiring too much space and without disturbing the neighbors.

Arm and Leg Reach

This move is a nice balance challenge, and it works your hamstrings and glutes. To do this, consider the following:

  • Raise the right arm in front of you as you balance right on your left leg
  • Lift the right leg behind you while lowering the torso until the torso and leg are parallel to the ground
  • Gradually return toward a standing position

Overhead Squatting

These straightforward exercise work your arms and flutes and occupy just a tiny amount of space. To increase your heart rate without jumping up and down and disturbing any neighbors, you could increase the speed of the exercise repetitions.

  • Your toes have to be slightly turned out when you stand with your feet broader than shoulder-width
  • With your hands shoulder-width apart, take a hold of a towel wrapped up and then hoist it right above your head
  • Avoid allowing the knees to extend past your toes as you squat

Pushups and Planks

Pushup exercises and planks are total-body workouts. To help increase the difficulty of this exercise, squeeze right on your leg muscles throughout this exercise.

  • Get into the pushup position and then create a “plank” by bending the elbows and resting your weight right on your forearms. Your body should then make a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders
  • Brace your core by contracting your set of abs, then press the body up into the top of the pushup position by extending each arm once at a time
  • Pause before reversing the movement and then return to your elbows

Single-Leg Squats on Your Wall

This move might seem easy, but it targets your core, glutes, hamstrings, and quads. Then stand with your back to a wall and your feet at hip-width apart around two feet in front of you. Lower your body by bending once your knees are around a 90-degree angle. Extend the right leg out, with the shin parallel to the floor. Hold this for around one to three seconds, and then switch sides.
