Life can get busy! If you’re not able to get to the gym as often as you’d like, or if you’re just not ready to shell out the moolah for a gym membership, give some of these home workouts a try.
What I love about all of these workouts is that they don’t require any equipment you couldn’t find in your own home, i.e. a chair or a gallon jug. I have, however linked some great workout accessories we have in the house and use to add resistance and/or increase the difficulty level of our home workouts. If you feel like you need to up the ante of your workouts, try adding resistance bands or light weights to your routine.
Each video is one full workout routine. Repeat each movement 12 times, for 4 sets each. When you feel ready, up the numbers to 15-20 reps for 6 sets. Prepare to feel the burn! But I promise, this is a good burn.
Always remember to stretch before any workout and stop if you feel any irregular shortness of breath or pain.
You should consult your physician or other health care professional before starting these or any other fitness program to determine if it is right for your needs. This is particularly true if you or your family have a history of high blood pressure or heart disease, or if you have ever experienced chest pain when exercising or have experienced chest pain in the past month when not engaged in physical activity, smoke, have high cholesterol, are obese, or have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in physical activity. Do not start any of these workouts if your physician or health care provider advises against it. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.
