We're going to share with you the 5 best at home workouts for men and women.
Before beginning any exercise routine, make sure to consult your doctor to make sure you're healthy enough for physical fitness.
The exercise that works the biggest muscle in your body, your legs, are squats. This exercise is not complex, in fact, every time you get up off the couch, you're doing a squat.
To get started, we're going to use a simple chair
Start standing with feet shoulder width apart pointing slightly out at a 30 degree angle.
Bend down slowly so that the edge of your butt rests on the front of the chair. Your legs should be bent at a 90 degree angle once you're seated and throughout the entire motion. This will take some practice, and a good tip is to watch your knee and make sure it never goes forward and covers your shoes.
To return to the starting position, keep your knees at a 90 degree angle and stand up avoiding bringing your knees forward.
You want to do 3-4 sets of 12 repetitions each.
Once you get good at these, you can remove the chair from the routine and simply go as low as you can while maintaining good form and returning to the starting position.
Just like squats, lunges target your legs. The larger the muscle you work, the more calories you burn.
Start off with hands on hips, and take one step forward, dipping your other leg and landing with a 90 degree bend in your knee.
Just like the squats, you want to make sure your knee doesn't go over the front of your foot. To continue the exercise, take another half step forward to return to the standing position.
Change legs, and dip your knee again to complete the exercise.
You want to do 12 repetitions with each leg for a total of 36-48 repetitions (3 to 4 sets).
To ensure you have a full body workout, we're going to teach you how to do a pushup.
Start with your hands shoulder width apart on the ground, with your back flat and your toes pointed at the ground.
Slowly lower your whole body, bending at the elbows until your elbows are at a 90 degree angle to the ground. Pause for a split-second once you've bent your arms.
Return to the starting position and repeat.
Do 12 reps and 3-4 sets.
