A lot of us were forced out of our normal gym routine when Covid hit, and switched over to working out at home. Now that it’s been over a year since madness hit, do you still work out at home, or are you slowly making your way back to the gym? Either way, this home workout for beginners is perfect. If you have access to a gym, you can absolutely still do this workout – if anything you get some extra benefit of having a variety of different machines and weights to use. But if you’re like me and you’re an at-home-workout-kinda-girl for life, this workout will be perfect for you as well. If you’re just starting out in your fitness journey and don’t have weights at home, don’t worry – you can get creative with finding something challenging enough weight-wise that you likely have sitting around the house. You can use water jugs, a loaded duffel bag or backpack, or just use your bodyweight as some of these exercises just may be challenging enough to not need any additional weights!
Because the majority of us don’t have elaborate home gyms with unlimited access to a variety of weights, I intentionally program my home workouts from my Forever Fit programs to be quick and intense to help you maximize your workouts in a short amount of time, with limited equipment. I’ve made this full body workout quick and intense by programming it using supersets. You will perform the two prescribed exercises back to back with no rest. Only rest 30-60 seconds upon completion of the second exercise. Repeat that superset 3-4x through before moving onto the next set of supersets. I recommend performing 10-15 reps of each exercise.
