If you’re in need of some inspiration for your at-home workouts, use our workouts as a starting point. We are giving you some basic exercises and different ways to turn them into a workout. To spice it up, use your own favorite exercises to customize our plan.
To prevent injury, be sure to warm up properly. Try some dynamic stretches or general movements, like a brisk walk.
Choose Your Exercises
Push Up: Enter a high plank position and steadily lower your chest to the ground. Push through your palms to end in the high plank position.
Squat: Place your feet shoulder-width apart. Keep your toes outwards as you lower your booty. Push through your heels to come up.
Tricep Dip: Sit on a surface a few feet off the ground. Scoot your booty off, and bend your elbows to lower your body. Push back up.
Plank: Enter a low plank position on your elbows. Keep your core tight and tuck your pelvis up into your belly button. Hold.
Pick a Format
Circuit: Do each exercise for 15-30 repetitions with little rest in between exercises. Repeat the whole circuit 4-6 times for a complete and efficient workout.
HIIT: Complete as many repetitions of each exercises as possible in a set amount of time, followed by a short period of rest. For example, 30 seconds of work with 10 seconds of rest before moving onto the next exercises. Repeat.
AMRAP: Short for “as many reps as possible,” this method is a doozy. Complete repetitions until failure before moving onto the next exercise. Rest in between each cycle and repeat.
