When people think about working out to lose weight, they often assume that to mean strenuous cardio and resistance training at the gym. I know a lot of people don’t have time to make it to the gym and also don’t want to pay the monthly fees. Thankfully, there are a lot of ways to lose weight and build that muscle at home! You don’t have to worry about anyone staring at you or trying to be cute for your gym crush lol. If performed correctly and consistently, home workouts can be every bit as effective as a gym workout. I run around so much that before I know it, it’s late. So I do my workout in my house EVERY night. I also eat healthy and that helps to make sure my hard work isn’t going to waste. I included some short GIFS of the workouts I do, so you can see how to do them properly.
I always start with a warmup and stretching to get my muscles ready. I like to focus on my butt, legs and abs (no duh, who doesn’t like to work those out lol) so the workouts below are tailored to them.
I do 100 squats. I also did these while I was pregnant.
Sumo Squat Jumps – I do 30 of these.
Squat Lunges – I do 25, take a break, then do another 25.
Let’s move over to the abs now…
Leg lifts – these are great for the lower abs. I do 20 up and down and then I do 20 criss cross (moving my legs in a scissor motion and then crossing them into a X)
These help those tough side areas! I do 20 on each side.
Toe Touch Crunches – I do 40 of these. If you can, try and touch your toes.
The dreadful plank – I hold a plank for 60 seconds. It is great if you can hold for 90.
These are quick and easy workouts you can do at home. If you have a specific goal, make sure you research what exercise would be best for you. These are the exercises that I like. I do mix it up and add some others in there, but these are my main ones.
Let me know what your favorite exercises are in the comment section 😉
