At Home Workouts

Monday, 12 December 2016

I do love going to the gym very much. not many people do like going to the gym but personally for me going to the gym is a lifestyle that I enjoy. I like to see the change in my body, I like that when I am stressed I am able to take it out on the machines in the gym and I love working out overall.
As I am sure you know working out does include different aspects of the body, some people have days dedicated to certain areas that they want to focus on. Days like this include, back, chest, arms, abs, glutes, leg and full body workouts. I personally love working out my lower body, I also love the fact that you don't have to go to the gym to do such workouts. Listed below are some of my favourite home workouts on video and lists. I hope I explain them easily!

Upper Body Days:

My personal favourite people to watch or get a routine from are Whitney Simmons and GraceFitUK. I also like to get some ideas from Gains4Girls on Instagram as well!

An example of a workout routine for the upper body days at home could be:

  • Press Ups - 4 sets of 10 reps
  • Using resistance bands, you could follow this workout along with Whitney Simmons.
  • With weights, you can do triceps extension to close row (4 sets of 12 reps) the idea is that you are bending forward and whilst holding your weights you are only using your lower arms to move the weight back.
  • Arm Circles (3 sets of 10 reps)
  • Elbow Presses ( 4 sets of 10 reps) now I do not know the technical term for this, but I do this exercise so I'm sure of this. The idea is that you have your elbows close together with your hands in a prayer position and then you are going to push up and down fast for about 30 secs. You should immediately feel it!
Lower body days:

My favourite kind of days..

An example of a workout for the lower body days at home could be:

  • Glute kickback (4 sets of 15 reps) - On all fours on the floor, push your leg back and bring it forward and then push back. So you are essentially pushing something back, if that makes any sense.
  • Squats (4 sets of 12 reps) - You can do this with weights or body weight, make sure that you are squatting properly and please ensure that your knee caps don't go over your knees.
  • Jumping squats ( 4 sets with 30 secs in each set) - This will definitely make you feel unbelievably sweaty but it is worth it!
  • A superset (this means two exercises back to back with no rest, 3 sets, 10 reps) - This includes sit-ups  where you are lying on the floor with your feet on the floor and you are going to lift your body up in attempt to sit up hence why its called a sit up. But it hurts. Straight after doing 10 reps of that you are going to in to leg raises, where you are laying on the floor and you are going to lift your legs up and back down again. You will automatically feel this in your abs, but it benefits. 
I am not a gym instructor nor have I learnt academically about fitness, but I thought it would be good to share some of the workouts that I do and have seen on some of my favourite fitness bloggers. 

Some other people I'd recommend to watch/read would be:
