If you’re wondering whether working out from home is considered less effective than going to the gym then you’re wrong. With the proper tips and techniques, it can be just as effective or even better. After all, the ultimate goal here is to help your body stay fit.

There are undoubtedly many advantages to exercising at home. That being said, how about we go over the workout routine?


Warm-up

Before you kick start your workout routine, warming up is very important. It does not have to be a lengthy routine, just 5 minutes is enough to get your muscles to be active and increase your heart rate. This will help your workout routine go a little smoother and prevent unwanted injuries.


Activity: You can run in place, and do jumping jacks or air punches and kicks.


For the workout routine, we’ve separated them into 3 categories


  1. Beginner (if you’re just starting out or looking to squeeze in a quick workout in between your schedule)

  2. Advanced (for those who need a little bit more of a kick)

  3. Intense (if you’re an avid fitness freak)
