Daily Distraction: How to get fit within your four walls
Over the weekend, I saw a ton of people on my Twitter timeline talking about Dalgona coffee. If you don’t know about this trend, it’s fine. Dalgona coffee is a frothy and creamy coffee that’s made by vigorously whipping coffee, sugar, and a little bit of water.
Now, if you own a blender or electric whisker, it’s easy for you to enjoy this Instagram worthy delight. However, if you don’t own any of these gadgets, you need to use your hand and whip this mixture for a long time to get the right texture and flavor — and that’s quite a workout.
That’s what I want to talk to you about today, home workouts. With no option to go to a gym or play any sport, we have to make sure that we don’t end up looking like Thor in Avengers: Endgame.
So, here are some handy ways to work out at home:
- The famous Gold’s Gym is offering some handy home workouts on its app and website. Plus, it’s offering free premium subscriptions to its app Gold’s AMP until May 31.
We have dozens of workouts to choose from for your at home gym session to get you sweating to something new everyday! Head over to https://t.co/tIMogJuNih for a full library of free workouts. #StrongerAnywhere #GoldsAtHome pic.twitter.com/Hn5gQDuVU8
