8 Easy At-Home Workouts To Try!

You don’t have to constantly sweat it out at the gym in Louisville to get the body you’ve always wanted. With 8 easy at-home workouts, you also don’t have to spend hundreds (or even thousands) to buy a recently hyped-up piece of exercise equipment for your home gym. All you need for an ample workout to produce noticeable results is a little motivation and your own body weight – that’s it!

Bodyweight training involves using just your body weight for resistance in a variety exercises. A combination of targeted exercises can be an effective method of strength training and a very beneficial addition to any fitness plan. In fact, when performed properly, bodyweight training can be just as effective as using free weights or weight machines.

Any time you’re exercising, you’re creating that kind of stress on your body that leads to the building of muscle. This is true whether you’re lifting free weights, running on a treadmill, or doing a few push-ups in your living room. For health enthusiasts who want to keep it simple, you can perform several different types of bodyweight exercises to work all of the major muscle groups without the need for any type of equipment. The best part is you can do these exercises almost anywhere at no cost to you!

Examples of easy at-home workouts:

  1. Push-ups
  2. Sit-ups
  3. Squats
  4. Lunges
  5. Calf raises
  6. Jumping jacks
  7. Planks
  8. Tricep dips

These and other exercises, as well as an array of modifications or variations, offer a plethora of options to hit all the right muscle groups and keep your workouts from becoming monotonous and boring. But remember to always use proper form and technique throughout each exercise to achieve the best results and avoid injury. Also, it’s a good idea to take one day off (or more if needed) between exercising a specific muscle group to give the muscles time to recover.

If you’re new to exercising, start off small with what feels most comfortable to you. Then, as you start to build strength and can easily do an exercise for one set of 12 to 15 repetitions, try alternative forms of the exercise and additional reps to give you more of a challenge as well as greater resistance.

Not sure where to start? Here is an example of an easy at-home workout that’s great for beginning your own bodyweight workout. Simply repeat the following actions five times each for a workout that’s sure to burn calories and help build lean muscle:

5 push-ups

10 sit-ups

15 squats

(Rest for 10 seconds)

5 jump squats

10 alternating lunges

15 reverse crunches

You can certainly mix up the order and add other easy at-home workouts as time goes on to keep things interesting and fun. Bottom line: bodyweight workouts can keep it simple without skimping on effectiveness. Establish your own bodyweight workout routine today and start seeing the benefits unfold before your eyes!
