We all have those days when we just can’t get to the gym, or we are going through a period of time that we can’t afford a gym membership, as well as, we might have little ones that need us.
You can take steps to prevent missed workouts by having a workout plan and equipment at home! The equipment doesn’t have to be expensive and can be purchased either from Walmart, Marketplace on FB or even possibly a yard sale!
So, let’s talk about what equipment you realistically you need. If you are new to working out start with lighter weights, such as 3 lb, 5lb, if you’re more experienced with working out, start with a set of 5lb and 8lb weights. A set of 2-3 bands of different strengths that have a handle. A stability ball is a wonderful investment as well! One other great investment is a medicine ball-there are many uses for them! All of these things can again be purchased fairly inexpensively.
Now, to the fun part! The Workout!!
Depending on how much time you have to workout, realistically you should shoot for 2-3 workouts a week. They should have a day in between as a rest day or you could do some type of cardio!
Make sure you warm up, either by walking or marching in place if you don’t have a lot of room or a treadmill.
Let’s get started!
-Squats 3×10 (Weights)
-Chest Flyes (Band anchored onto a heavy piece of furniture or a railing) 3×10
-Rows 3×10 (Weights)
-Plies 3×10 (Weights)
-Bicep Curls 3×10 (Band anchored under the foot)
Tricep Dips 3×10 (use a stable piece of furniture or the floor)
-Wall Ball 3×10 (Medicine Ball) (Squat and then toss a the ball up on a wall in front of you)
-Crunches 3×10 (Medicine Ball on the Chest)
-Plank on the Elbows 3x20seconds
Again, do this workout every other day and after a couple weeks as it gets easier, up your weights and band strength or up your repetitions to 3×12-15!
Who is up to the challenge?
Would you be willing to try this workout for a couple weeks or a month?
I am actually going to be looking for a couple people to do an online program similar to in the near future! If you would be interested in being included, comment below and I’ll contact you soon!
Good Luck and let me know how you like the workout!
