How to start working out at home:
  • An effective at-home workout starts with preparation. If you want to feel your best and achieve results from your training, a good preparation plan is really important. Here are some things you can do to hit the ground running.
  • You don’t need much to begin working out. That being said, if you are serious about seeing results and changing your current fitness level, a few workout essentials can make a big difference. You don’t need to invest in a bunch of equipment before committing to a program but it can be beneficial to have some key pieces you can use for all types of workouts.
These may include:
  • Yoga mat
  • Skipping rope
  • Resistance bands
  • Foam roller
  • Dumbbells
  • Kettlebell
  • Barbell.

Many at-home workouts can be done with BODY-WEIGHT exercises, so it’s not essential to purchase a huge amount of equipment. With that in mind, having a few pieces of equipment can give you more options for training and it can allow for your workouts to include a bit more variety too.

Most at-home training programs will require you to do some sort of BODY-WEIGHT exercises, so knowing how to do a few of these correctly can make it easier to “hit the ground running”. The bonus of working out at home is that with my help you can perfect your technique.

You have the time and the space to practice these exercises over and over.

Visit my blog: https://fitnesswithana.com and chose a workout appropriate for your fitness level. I usually do these workouts out of my home studio and, I am explaining every move.

Make sure you have talked with your Physician and you have the green light to exercise and, there are no other issues that it may keep you from exercising.

BODY-WEIGHT exercises such as Push-ups and Burpees, allow you to increase your strength and fitness without the need for equipment.

You can also modify BODY-WEIGHT exercises to make them more or less challenging — whether that is by doing push-ups on your knees or by adding an incline when you want to make them harder.

Here’s a BODY-WEIGHT Workout:

25 Squats
8 per side Lateral Lunges
10 per side Mountain Climbers
12 Crunches
10 Jumping Jacks
10 Keeling Push-ups
12 per side alternating Front Lunges
10 Full Extension (Jackknifes – ABS)
12 per side alternating Back Lunge
10 Burpees
Rest 1-2 min after 1st SET

Repeat this workout up to 4 Sets or just stop after your 1st set if this is your 1st time exercising.

Working out at home can be just as effective as training in the gym but it requires CONSISTENCY and DISCIPLINE.
