You guys, everything is going so fast!!! Last time, I was just waiting for the new year, for my classes to end, and for valentine’s day. Now, it’s the second week of March!!! I have so many things to do this month and I really want to get them done already. So if you think time should slow down, I wouldn’t agree with you, at least for now. LOL.
I could go on and on about how the start of this year has been so exhausting and terrible. So let’s move on and talk about home workouts.
Doing this 90-day challenge, I thought I also needed to up my game when it comes to my workout and not just my food. So last week, I went to a fitness studio and enrolled in a stiletto dance class. I loved it and I enjoyed it so much. I was even planning to attend this week’s session, however, the increasing number of the COVID-19 cases in the country scared me. It’s best to stay at home these days.
Anyway, the actual purpose of this article is because of my close friends and relatives who would rather go to the gym than exercise at home. Their reasons don’t really differ from one another: they get distracted easily, they would rather lay in bed than lay in an exercise mat, there’s food avaliable, and they feel like home workout won’t be able to target some parts of the body.
I can’t lie and say I don’t feel these things anymore because I still do and I dislike it. It’s like a constant battle between my body and my excuses. But of course, I can’t let my excuses win.
So if you feel the same way, plus, if you don’t want the virus to be an excuse for you to skip your workout, then this article might be the answer to your problem.
Don’t worry! There are lots of home workout ideas and routines. I’d be happy to share you mine!!! I do different exercises targeting different body parts each day to make it more effective. All you need is an exercise mat…. and maybe some furry friends.
On Mondays, I do cardio. There are several cardio exercises, but jump rope, running, cycling, power walking, and jumping jacks are always my go-to.
On Tuesdays, I do ab exercises. I don’t want to discourage you, but this is honestly my least favorite. Don’t blame me, ab workouts hurt more than anything!!! But, despite the pain, I always do Kayla Itsines’ ab exercises.
On Wednesdays, I do leg exercises. I never skip squats, lunges, and single-leg deadlifts. Leg-toning Pilates workout is a killer too!
On Thursdays, I do arm workout. I use dumbbells most of the time. I researched some arm exercises with dumbbells from different sources and came up with my own routine.
On Fridays, I do butt exercises. I’ve been consistent with my routine for years now. I’ve been doing Blogilates’ Lift Your Booty Workout.
I try to exercise 5 to 6 times a week. If I want to move on a Saturday, I usually do a total body workout. You could too, but you could also make your weekends your rest days!!
I also just want to share with you this cute blooper! I tried filming outside, but this one wouldn’t let me.
Don’t forget to 1) create a home workout plan, 2) do it, and 3) be consistent. It does require more discipline, but it can be really fun too!
Ya’ll stay at home and be safe.
Happy Healthy Living!
