The rains can be a real pain for those who like to keep a fixed work-out schedule throughout the week. The constant downpour makes it next to impossible to work-out outside. It can get pretty frustrating if you miss out on your schedule. However, there are a few things you can do to keep yourself on track. Here are a few ways to stay fit this monsoon.
1. Incorporate core exercises:
Exercises that make your core stronger using your own body weight are quite effective as indoor workouts. Body weight exercises like push-ups, squats, crunches and lunges are excellent choices to improve your muscular strength. These are some of the best exercises for men, both to stay fit and to develop some killer cuts

Why it is so important- While most people feel yoga is more about increasing flexibility, it is well known that yoga helps build immunity and helps in reducing respiratory problems which are a common affliction during monsoons. The increased moisture in the air doesn’t really suit everyone. If you are one of those people, you should try out some yoga for your respiratory system. Combine this with a healthy diet and you will feel a lot better.
3. Running in the rain
We all know that one of the best workouts is going for a run. If it’s a mild drizzle, and not a full blown rain shower, one can venture out for a run on the jogging track in your building or at the neighborhood park. A mild windcheater, preferably with a hood and shoes with grooves in their soles help a great deal maintaining a grip on track.
4. Work-out schedule:
Don’t change your workout timing because of the rains. If you work out at a particular time, and can’t go outside, you should consider joining a gym for these 3 months. Gym work-outs are a tried and tested method of getting the best physique. This could surely be a good move this monsoon.
