If you are looking for home workout plans, rest assured: home workouts are just as effective for gaining muscle and improving fitness as any training routine at a gym. The following routines should give you a great start and keep you going.
Why Home Workouts?
Maybe it’s the convenience, maybe it’s the cost effectivity, maybe you have another reason for making the choice of getting fit in your own home. Whatever it is, as long as you work against sufficient resistance, it doesn’t take a $5,000 fitness machine to get fitter, lose weight and make your muscles grow. More tips on that you will find in this article.
The home workouts outlined on here don’t need any bought equipment; if necessary, everything can be improvised. For some in-depth tips about what equipment you need and how you can build your own, check this article. Also have a look at this video, which explains how gas canisters and water bottles can be used as weights when you later need more resistance to work against.
Gauge Your Fitness Level
A simple rule of thumb to determine how fit you are is the following: if you are able to do 30 consecutive push-ups and 7 consecutive pull-ups, both in good form and without cheating, you have left the beginner stage.
