When you are about to workout at home you have to remember that you are probably in a time crunch. So the workout has to be QUICK but effective. Basically you have to be SURE you got the most out of the time, or else what’s the point?!
So how do you insure your workout is those things?
When I workout at home I do mostly bodyweight exercises (great for toning) so I don’t have to worry about a bunch of fancy equipment.
The truth is, we can do just fine without equipment!!
When i’m working out at home, lately, I just need my resistance bands and a kettle bell (I purchased both mine at TJ Maxx for super cheap).
The less equipment, the more FOCUS you have just on the workout.
When you have a few pieces of equipment you can jump from one exercise to the next quicker.
If you only have about 20-30 minutes it’s important to take little to NO breaks. Taking little breaks keeps your heart rate up and turning your at-home sesh into a cardio/fat burning workout.
When I workout at home I set a timer for 30 mins, pick a series of about 8 exercises and keep completing them until the 30 mins has elapsed.
When I finish, I am a sweaty mess & really sore the next day- WIN WIN.
