11 Exercises You can do at Home!

11 Exercises You can do at Home!

Hey guys! In this post I will be running through my exercise routine with 11 exercises you can do at home! If I can’t get to the gym but feel like I need to do something these are some the exercises I do!
This was originally put together by my instructor about a year ago when I first started doing exercise so it is perfect for beginners but if you’re more advanced it will also be perfect for a quick workout like I use it for now!
When I first starting doing this at home it was a real challenge, and to be honest, it still is! But depending on what I want out of the session I can customise it to suit that day – if I have time for a longer workout I add more reps on but if it needs to be a quick workout I can just take out some of the exercises.
Also the great thing about working out at home is that you can do it while watching TV or at least in the adverts! You can also it at any time of day – my Mum and I have done it after having a glass of wine (or two!) in the living room with some music on and it was great fun!
So let’s take a look at it!

20 step-ups – you can use any step you have!
20 high knees (10 each leg)
20 punches (10 each arm)
20 jumping jacks
20 V-steps (with squat)

x2

20 triple crunches
20 leg extensions (10 each leg)
20 squats
20 press-ups

x1

30 – 45 second plank (low)
30 – 45 second plank (high)


And that’s it! All of these exercises I love doing (not that I did when I started!) and I hope you do too!
I recommend you take a 30 sec break in-between sets and 1 min break in-between each section. Also, I definitely advise that you begin your workout with a good warm up and end it with a cool down!

    Love this so much. With a toddler at home, gym has been a thing of the past but I need to do something. I appreciate these great ideas. No more procrastination need to move my wobbly butt. Thank you

    So great! i need to pin this, because we’re about to move across the country, so I won’t be at a gym for waaaaayyy too long. These are actually doable, though!

    I like to do squats and lunges at home as I walk around the apartment. I also like to do at-home yoga. These look like some good ideas for adding more exercise at home.

      That’s such a great idea doing it as you walk around!

    These are great! I usually do my exercises at gone, the gym weirds me out. I get anxious around crowds and my gym is always packed.

      I’m not great with the gym either, I much prefer doing exercise at home or in a group class! Hope these help ☺️

    I love at home workouts!! No need for a sitter, no intimidation, and no leaving the house!! These are great exercises!

    • April 14, 2016 / 3:46 pm

      Exactly! It’s great to be able to roll out of bed and get straight into it! Glad you liked these ☺️

    I LOVE posts like these! I always tell my girlfriends that any workout is better than none, and there are so many we can do at home while watching tv! Saving this to my list of go-to quick workouts. Thanks SO much! xoxox, Kayla
