Beginner Bodyweight Home Workout

by Megan

One of the biggest obstacles to working out is the time and equipment it takes to do so. Many of us don’t have room in our budgets to buy exercise equipment, or time in our schedules to travel to the gym. Luckily, we can still get in a quality workout at home with little to no equipment, by using bodyweight exercises. Today I’m sharing a beginner bodyweight home workout that will help you get into great shape with the resources you have!

A bodyweight workout is a series of strength training exercises that do not require free weights. Your own weight provides the resistance for the movements. Think pushups, tricep dips, pullups, situps, etc.

No more excuses, am I right? What I love about bodyweight workouts is that they are made for all fitness levels. All you will need is you, a space big enough to complete the workouts, and some water for your rest periods. And don’t forget to pump up the jams; it will make the time pass quicker!

The whole workout should take less than a half hour. Start with a five minute warm up of light cardio, then complete each circuit twice, with a rest in between sets. If you are advanced, add a third set of each circuit.

So there we have it, one less excuse to getting fit! Working out at home has never been so easy, although this workout will definitely get your heart pumping. Set your own pace; this workout is to motivate you, not to intimidate you. I believe in you! Once you finish this workout, check out the rest of my “Workout At Home” series, and have fun getting fit!

Baby Steps to a Better You: Day 2


Today’s action step for Day 2 of Baby Steps to a Better You is to do 10 pushups. Yep, you can get down and do it right this second. Go for it! Did you do it? I did too. Check!

Extra bonus points if you completed the full bodyweight workout, but if you don’t have time for it today, definitely pin it for later. It’s so easy to get into a rut of not moving, and it’s difficult to start again. My son does pushups at his Tae Kwon Do classes, and yesterday I did some with him to show him some pointers. I think I only did about 15, and yet today I’m feeling it in my abs!

Baby steps, remember? Start moving today, and then keep going!
