My Favorite [At-Home] Full Body Workout

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)

Stretch…Breathe…Hydrate

Remember to practice good form.  Quality is more important than quantity when it comes to our exercise and overall wellness. You can do this!

    I quit going to the gym when my youngest was born. It was hard to give up because it was the place I’d go to relieve stress and a place I would always go when I needed “me time”. Working out at home is convient because there is no drive time back and forth to the gym, it’s free and since I’m a SAHM I try to save where I can. I can workout but be home if my girls need me for anything. I’m always looking for new workouts, so thank you for sharing your favorite full body workout routine. I love the 5 minute abs, butt, legs, arms, and cardio app on my phone as well as the Bikini Body Mommy workouts on YouTube. I also am also really loving Tabata workouts…when I really don’t have a lot of time they are usually my go-to.

    Yes! I think the Bikini Body Mommy has great workout options. I love what she’s started! I know what you mean about having “me time” at the gym. One day we’ll have it back, and I bet at that point I’ll be wishing my kids were little again, and I was forced to be working out at home😂
