We have four pieces of exercise equipment in our house: a medicine ball, one set of free weights, a resistance band, and a yoga mat. You don’t need to get fancy or break the bank to have a great workout at home.
I began working out more frequently from home after my son was born. It was a practical option and combined with my knowledge as a personal trainer, it was an easy choice.
It’s a time saver, too. For those who find the thought of heading to the gym at 6am or after work overwhelming, this is a great substitute for a couple of mid-week exercise sessions! No travel, no prep, and no extra time added.
So here it is – my favorite full body workout, focused on building both strength and endurance, using only the four pieces of exercise equipment listed above:
Bicycle Kicks (20 reps) / Supermans (20 reps) [Repeat 2x]
Leg Lifts (15 reps) / Seated Russian Twist with med. ball (20 reps) [Repeat 2x]
Push Ups (12 standard or 18 modified) / Step Back Lunge with free weights (20 reps-10 each side) [Repeat 2x]
Mountain Climbers (20 reps) / Frog Jumps (20 reps) [Repeat 2x]
Bicep Curls with band (15 reps) / Sumo Squat with med. ball (20 reps) [Repeat 2x]
High Knee March (30 reps)
Remember to practice good form. Quality is more important than quantity when it comes to our exercise and overall wellness. You can do this!
