Boost Your Fitness With Resistance

Back in February, I saw an ad on Facebook for a squat machine. Right away it caught my eye because it looked silly, but when I took a closer look, I realized I could really use it in my home! I bought it on a whim within 20 minutes of seeing the ad. I opted not to get the resistance bands, weighted belt, and any other accessories. I figured I could worry about that once I got the machine and found alternatives. Let’s look at how you can boost your fitness with resistance, especially when stuck in quarantine.

I began to keep it very simple with wholesome foods and used simple equipment to help make working out enjoyable. 42 pounds later (YAY!) I am ready to find my strength with weight training, and I couldn’t be more excited.
