At Home Workout Routine for Beginners

Let’s be honest; most of us are just too busy.

We work throughout the week, and sometimes on the weekend, and we have time to spend with friends and family. When you have kids, it feels like you don’t have a minute to spare, and it is incredibly difficult to fit in working out into your busy schedule.

Most of us just don’t have the time to go there and back during the day. As well, gyms can be pricey and for many young people who have just finished school, they don’t have the money to spare on buying a gym membership.

However, the main point I want to make here is that that is no excuse for not physically exercising. It is easy these days to work out in the comfort of your own home and you can do it early in the morning, or the afternoon, or late at night! It is up to you and your schedule.

The best part about it is it’s free, and it is easy to do. Today I will walk you through an at-home workout routine for beginners. It is my hope that by the end of this article, you will feel inspired and ready to work out.

Beginning your workout

Whenever I am about to begin my workout at home, I warm up my entire body. If your body is not warmed up and you dive into a hard exercise, you are at risk of injuring yourself. What I recommend is that you first start out with a 10-minute jog on the spot.

If you have a treadmill, even better, but you do not need one to get your heart going. Mix some jumping jacks in there; this will get the blood flowing throughout the body and release endorphins to gear you up for the rest of your workout.

Once your run is complete, take some time to stretch your entire body. Again, this is to prevent injury and maintain and strengthen flexibility. It is integral to be flexible, and very important for later in your life.

Exercises to do for the upper body

First, let’s concentrate on upper body exercises that you can do in the comfort of your own home (without any weights or mats). All these will develop your chest, shoulders, biceps, triceps, and core.

Push ups

These are a no-brainer! Push ups are so integral to developing your chest and are a fantastic workout for your arms. However, as with all the exercises I will walk you through, form is incredibly important; if you are doing push ups wrong, it will not benefit you.

Make sure your butt is down, and your arms are in the proper place. For beginners, this will be hard, so I recommend you start out by just doing 5 sets of 10 reps. If it is too hard, go down to your knees and continue.

Crunches

Again, another one that you must do to strengthen your core. Make sure you are holding your core tightly and have a flat back. Simply crunch up and down. I recommend doing 100 of these if you are a beginner.

The plank

It may look incredibly easy but it is super hard. Planking develops your shoulders and is the best core workout you can do for yourself at home. Try to stay in plank for at least a minute, take a rest, and then repeat it 3 more times. By the end, you may not be able to do it but push yourself.

Exercises for the lower body

Squats

These are so easy to do at home and are highly effective; they will strengthen your legs and your thigh muscles. Make sure you hold your core during this exercise for maximum efficiency.

The sit down

Find a wall and put your back up against it, and sit as if you are on a chair. I promise you, your legs will start shaking, but simply hold this position for at least a minute, rest, and repeat as many times as you can.
