Workouts That Work: Home Fitness For Those Who Don’t Have Time to Go To The Gym


If you are one of those people who want to get fit and avoid detrimental health conditions or injuries but don’t have time to go to the gym twice a week then you are not alone. There are hundreds of people out there who are in the exact same situation, but that doesn’t mean that you have to throw away your hopes and dreams of becoming fit. There are plenty of exercises that you can do at home, some of which can be found below. 

Push-Ups 

The push-up may be an old workout but it is more than possible for you to change-up the intensity. This is often included in at home workout plans for couples and it is ideal for those who want to exercise together. When you do the push-up, try and change the placement of your hands and find out what works for you. Remember that the slower that you do the push-up, the more muscle groups you are using and this is ideal if you want to see results fast.

Limb Raises 

To do this exercise, simply lie on your front and lift your left arm as high as you can. When you have done this, lower it slowly and do the same with your right arm. You can repeat this a couple of times if you want, but when you’re done, it is time to move on to the legs. Lift the left leg up, and then the right, lowering them slowly. Speed is everything here because the slower you do the exercise, the more you are engaging your muscles. Believe it or not, this is great for your abs as well, so if you want to get that beach body this is ideal. It also helps to use an app to track your progress here. 

Downward Dog 

The downward dog is actually a yoga move but it is more than possible for you to get super toned up by doing this. Simply place your hands on the floor and space them shoulder-width apart. When you have done this, arch your back and move your legs backwards. This position will be incredibly hard for you to hold for more than a couple of seconds, but it’s all about control and it is ideal for toning up. You can even use this to try and stretch out as well if you have just finished a workout. 

Planking 

If you want to get the best results out of your fitness then it’s important to have a good diet. When your diet is good, the rest of it will fall into place. Planking is ideal if you want to take advantage of your core muscles and the best thing about it is that you don’t need any equipment to do it. This can easily be incorporated into your home workout programs and it is ideal if you want to try and firm up those abs. Of course, if you are new to planking then there are adaptations that you can do to make it easier, such as by having your elbows closer to your body. Make sure that you track your planking times as well, so you can look back and see how you’re improving!

Hiking Around Home

Sometimes you need to get out of the house and hit the trails! Going hiking is a great workout and can involve more of the smaller muscles and core (especially if you're carrying a backpack of gear) than just walking or jogging on pavement or treadmills. Try and go for a hike at least once per week to boost the benefits.
