Simply put, working out at home is great.  There’s no worry about how you look and nobody sweating all over the machines (then forgetting to wipe it off).  While working out at home can come with some limitations such as not having machines or weights, there are still plenty of ways to get a good workout in from the comfort of your own home.

For beginners, circuit training is a great way to work targeted areas of the body and get the most out of your time.  Basically, you pick an area of the body you want to target and find 3-5 exercises that target that area. You can do more or less, but 3-5 is a good beginner number because it’s enough that you’ll definitely feel it, but not so much that it’s exceptionally challenging.  Once you have the workouts picked out, you spend 30 seconds to a minute performing each one back to back, take a short break, then repeat at least 3 times.

 

Legs and Butt

If you find yourself without any equipment or weights, there are many ways to work your leg and butt area. While you are by no means limited to the workouts I've listed below, these are a few simple and effective ones.

     
  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Wall Sit
  • Hip Raises
  • Donkey Kicks
  • Side Lunge

 

 

 

Arms and Chest

Working out your arm and chest area without any weights can easily be done with the workouts below.  However if you're looking to do bicep curls or anything that typically requires weights, you can substitute the weights with household objects such as canned goods or filled bottles.
