Building Your Own Home Workout Routines

You want to workout but you’d rather do some kind of home workout routines rather than go to the gym.

You also don’t want to buy all kinds of expensive exercise equipment because let’s face it, you’ve already done that, used the equipment a dozen times (if that) and now it’s sitting in the corner collecting dust. The great news is that you don’t have to leave your house or buy fancy expensive exercise equipment to get in a great workout. You can build some of your own Home Workout Routines and get great results.

I went to commercial gyms when I first started getting into the fitness grove and it didn’t take me long to become dissatisfied with it. So I did some research and found that I could do home workout routines that were just as effective and would save me a not of money over the long run.

One of the best home workout routines for fat loss, is using nothing more than the weight of your body by using the biggest, and strongest muscles that you have.

When you use the largest muscles in your body during the workout, this means that those muscles are going to need quite a bit more calories in order to recover than if you had done a workout where you just focused on the smaller muscles.

I’ll use the pushup as example. During a pushup, the main muscles that you are using are your chest, triceps, shoulders, and forearms, as well as activating your core in order to stabilize your entire body. Compare that to a bicep curl. A bicep curl is basically isolating your bicep and forearm muscles to lift the weight and using your shoulders and core to stabilize your body.

Aren’t you using quite a bit more muscle in the pushup than you are in the bicep curl?

Meaning, doesn’t it make sense that with all the muscle that you’re using in the pushup, that it’s going to mean that your body needs to burn more calories after the workout to repair those muscles from the pushups then it would take to repair the smaller amount of muscle you used in the bicep curl?

So that’s where we’re are going to start.

Categories in Your Home Workout Routines

There are 5 basic types of movements that we are going to include in these home workout routines (and here’s some examples too):

1. Squat – like a Bodyweight Squat

2. Single Leg – an example would be a lunge

3. Pushing Movement – ie. a pushup

4. Jump – like a jumping jack

5. Core – a plank hold

Don’t freak out though and think that you have to do a full pushup on your toes right from the start when developing your home workout routines.

If you’re just starting off with exercise, you could do a pushup on a wall first. Once that gets easier, then you could go to doing them on your knees. Once that gets easier, you can challenge yourself again to doing them on your toes.

Building Your Home Workout Routines

Now let’s pull this all together.

You want to pick one exercise from each of the categories above and you’re going to do each of those exercises for 30 seconds each, and no rest between exercises.

So for a beginner, it would go like this:

1. Lying Hip Extension – 30 seconds

2. Wall Pushup – 30 seconds

3. Jumping Jacks – 30 seconds

4. Side Leg Raise – 15 seconds on each leg

5. Kneeling Plank – 30 seconds

You would do all five of those exercises with no rest between each exercise, and then when you were done with the Kneeling Plank, you’d rest about 30-60 seconds and then complete that circuit again. Then rest another 30-60 seconds and do it one more time.

You can also modify these exercises in your home workout routines to make them more difficult if you are at a more intermediate or advanced level.

  • You could do a bodyweight squat or a bodyweight squat on your toes for the squat,
  • A pushup on your knees or toes for the pushup
  • A burpee or tuck jump instead of the jumping jacks
  • A full reverse, forward, or walking lunge instead of the side leg raise
  • A full plank or a plank on a stability ball in place of the kneeling plank

Made for You Home Workout Routines

But maybe you don’t want to sit there and build your own home workout routines for yourself.

I’ve got a new line of products that you can choose from that will do that for you.

The best part is that you have a choice between a beginner, intermediate, or advanced program. So there’s something for everyone no matter if you are just starting off or if you’ve been working out for awhile and need something new to switch too.

Each of the home workout routines lasts 90 days, they tell you exactly what exercises to do, how to do the exercises (with written, picture AND video demonstrations), and only take about 30 minutes to complete, 3 days a week. The only exercise equipment that you need is a stability ball.

Plus, you’ll also get a Fat Loss Nutritional Guide and the 7-Minute Abs.

Summary on How to Build Your Own Home Workout Routines

Just follow those easy steps above in selecting exercises from those 5 different categories (squat, single leg, pushing, jump, and core) and you can build yourself home workout routines that’ll get you started.

Or, save yourself some time with a 30-Minute Workout that has everything laid out for you to drop 10, 15, or even 20 pounds in just 90 days, AND you don’t even have to leave your house or buy expensive exercise equipment to do it.

Home workout routines are quite frankly, the simplest way to get you the body that you want.
