Time To Get Moving! Here's A Free Home Workout!

Updated: Aug 16, 2020

It’s no secret that all of us have been in a bind with our physical health for the past few months.

Getting to the gym and eating healthy was already tough but we made it happen. We tried to make smarter decisions with our food. We got the gym a few times a week. It’s wasn’t easy, but we were doing it.

Then came the Corona Virus.

And all Hell broke loose.

We were no longer able to make the drive to the gym to do what we needed to do.

We could no longer get out of the house and away from all the snacks (or kids).

We could no longer buy the healthy food we loved because the shelves were empty.

It was infuriating. I felt your pain.

I would be lying if I told you that I was the pinnacle of health during this time. One morning I found myself with an EMPTY family-sized bag of Reese's. Yeah, I said morning. I also opened that bag that morning.

Not good.

Trying to switch from lifting weights and using a treadmill to doing home workouts and running outside was a nightmare for me. I don’t like change and this was a lot of change. Since then, I’ve grown a little and learned the value of doing something physically challenging while stuck at home. Honestly, it helped my headspace and attitude more than anything else.

If you are currently stuck in a place of frustration and don’t know what kind of workout to do, I want to share a home workout that will take about 20 minutes to complete. It’s not going to get you jacked, but it will keep you healthier than doing nothing. Honestly, you will feel better too.

Beginner At-Home Workout

Time Needed: 20 minutes

Step 1 - Warm Up

Run in Place | 2-3minutes

Jumping Jacks | 25 repetitions

Bodyweight Squats | 20 repetitions

Lunges | 5 repetitions each leg

Pushups | 10 repetitions

Crunches | 10 repetitions

Step 2 - Circuit Workout

(Complete 2 rounds with a 2-minute break in between)

Bodyweight Squats | 20 repetitions

Pushups | 10 repetitions

Standing Lunges | 10 repetitions each leg

Single Arm Row | 10 repetitions each arm (Add weight with items around the house, like a milk jug)

Crunches | 15 repetitions

Jumping Jacks | 30 repetitions

Step 3 - Cool Down and Stretch

Ab Stretch | 20 seconds

Cat and Cow | 20 seconds

Hip Flexor Stretch | 20 seconds

Lower Back Stretch | 20 seconds

Quad Stretch | 20 seconds

Shoulder Stretch | 20 seconds

If you do this and it gets too easy, add another round or two. If you want to do this with a friend, you can race and see who can complete three rounds the fastest.

It’s okay to have fun while doing this. You deserve that.
