Tuesday, 24 March 2020 | Paul
If you're reading this, you're probably considering working out at home. Maybe your gym has closed down and you're just trying to stay fit, or perhaps you're a beginner. It doesn't matter, because ultimately we all want answers to the same questions. Will home workouts help me lose weight? Can I gain muscle with home workouts?
The fact is, working out at home can be incredibly fulfilling and gain-inducing. It can help you lose weight, gain muscle, and stay fit and healthy. There are plenty of workouts you can do and lots more variations. In this blog we will look at some of the best workouts and some hot tips for maximising your results.
Before We Get Started...
It goes without saying that a yoga mat of some kind would be highly advantageous. Mats prevent friction burns and provide quality comfort for your back, your front and your bottom. Here at Health and Care, we stock a range of quality workout mats:
It also helps to keep things fresh - that means changing your gym clothes and your routine is imperative to keeping you hooked! Try new music, listen to a new podcast. If you're someone who finds exercise particularly painful, associate your workouts with something you enjoy. If you'd rather be reading a book, download an audiobook and listen to it while you get your pump on.
One More Thing...
To experience the full benefits of home workouts, dietary changes can go a long way in building muscle and toning your figure.
Best Iron Abs Burnout
To maximise the burn, it's good to try and chain these workouts together and repeat after a rest period of 3 minutes. As you get better, you can increase your reps (one complete motion of one exercise) and decrease your rest period.
Best Bodyweight Chest Workout
At home you're limited to the amount of body workouts you can do for your chest - but this doesn't mean these aren't useful. You can build some serious muscle tone and mass on your chest with variations of push-ups. As mentioned before, to maximise the burn, it's good to try and chain these workouts together and repeat after a rest period of 3 minutes. As you get better, you can increase your reps (one complete motion of one exercise) and decrease your rest period.
Best Legs and Bums Home Workout
You can get some seriously toned and muscly legs at home. There are a range of exercises that, when completed properly, can make you feel like you've climbed the biggest hill with a cow on your back. Moving swiftly on, here's some killer legs and bums workouts:
