Working Out From Home

As I have always said that fitness is a huge part of my life and I seem to always be talking about it on my blog and every day. For those that don't know I'm always sharing my workouts over on my Instagram story, so if you need some workout inspo follow my Instagram. Anyway, enough with the promo, today's blog post is all about working out at home!

I do go to the gym quite a lot but sometimes I can't be asked to go or I'm being very lazy, on days like this I tend to do home workouts. Recently, I added two new things to the home workouts - dumbbells and weights. I'm used to the wide range of weights at the gym and I love weight training so it was about time that I bought some weights home. As I prefer to do my heavier workouts at the gym, I have some lightweight dumbbells for some arm workouts and ab workouts. My ankle/arm weights are perfect for lower body days alongside the help of a resistance band. I like to purchase some of my workout gear on Amazon as I find that they have a good range of effective, trusting equipment. TK Maxx is also another perfect place to purchase some weights for home workouts and more. Using the small dumbbells in a home workout would mainly be based on my stomach area, an example of this would be:

A 10-minute workout with a 2-minute rest:

Complete this little circuit twice, complete this circuit once, rest for 2 minutes and repeat again!

Dumbbell Coccoons (20 secs)
Sit up with Dumbbell Punches (10)
Plank Hold (15 secs)
Dumbbell Renegade Rows (10)
Ab Bicycle (20 secs)

The ankle weights would be a perfect way to tone your legs and build a bit of a bum, an example of this would be:

Complete this little circuit twice, complete this circuit whole, rest for 2 minutes and repeat again!

Walking Lunges or stationary lunges (10 reps per leg)
Jump squats (10)
Monster Walks with resistance bands as well (10)
High knees (10)
Side leg raises (10 reps per leg)
Straight leg kickbacks (10 reps per leg)

Where do you buy your gym equipment from?
