Great at Home Workout Exercises


Many people want to work out. However, they don’t want to pay for a gym membership, or they feel uncomfortable going to the gym. Regardless of your reason, you can still get a great workout at home. Not sure what you can do? No worries! We’re here to share some great at home exercises you can utilise to help you reach your fitness goals.

Jump rope

Jump rope

A jump rope may bring you back to elementary school, but it’s a great workout that will give you results quickly. Grab a jump rope from the store and start skipping. In the beginning, it may take some getting used to, but soon you will be a natural jumper.

If you have children, you can always include them in on this activity. It’s great for children to see their parents doing something healthy and following along with them. Following up your session with a healthy smoothie can turn a simple workout into a bonding experience with your child—make an afternoon of it. You can even get handy no-mess blenders to keep things quick. If you don’t have a blender, you can read more about your two best options here.


Stepping on Chair

Stepping on Chair
If you have a chair or other sturdy step of a similar height, you can try step ups. This isn’t a particularly complicated exercise—you just step up on the surface and then down repeatedly at whatever pace feels comfortable to you. Adding weights can be a great way to step up this exercise. 

Alternately, if you have a flight of stairs at your home, you can do step ups on them or even run up and down them. Both options are a great lower body workout and are sure to increase your heart health.


Planks

Planks
The plank is an excellent exercise for your entire core. To perform a plank, lay flat on the floor facing down, then lift up on your toes and elbows holding your body straight like a plank in the air. Try and maintain this position on the floor and keep your butt down. You can start small and try and hold it for 30 seconds. The more comfortable you get with this exercise as well as the fitter you become, the longer you will be able to keep it.

A fun challenge is to put on a song and see if you can hold the plank throughout the entire song. Give it a try.


Lunges

Lunges
Lunges are an excellent way to get your entire lower body working. When you lunge forward, make sure not to allow your knee to go over your toes as this can cause damage in your knee. It’s also important to do the same number of lunges on the left side as it is on the right side. This will keep your legs evenly strong. 

Pushups

Pushups
Pushups are a great upper body exercise. There are many different phases of pushups, so no matter your fitness level, you will be able to do them. If you are just starting, you can do push-ups against a wall or on your knees. Once you gain strength, you can advance to a regular push up where your weight is balanced on your hands and toes. 

As you can see, there are so many options for workouts at home. We hope this guide helps. Keep trying different exercise at home, and you will be on your way to reaching your fitness goals in no time.
