A full body workout at home will elevate your mood. It will also give you the energy to stay focused and happy. Keeping physically fit will boost your mental health and your immune system while you burn all those calories you’re eating. Follow me as I take you on a virtual tour with this at-home, whole body workout.
Workouts for Energy
When planning the perfect at-home workout, it is important to keep it balanced. You want to include strength, cardio, mobility, and breathing exercises to cover all of your bases. When I can’t go out, I like to add in an extra cardio workout at home. After a good heart-pounding session, I feel like I’ve been jogging in the park, and it drains all my restless energy away.
Space is a premium in my home, so I’ve learned how to use some really compact equipment. I take the Lifeline Jungle Gym XT with me on trips so I never have to miss a workout. It’s so light and compact that it fits easily in my baggage, and all I need to use it is a door frame! It’s the perfect way to use bodyweight exercises instead of dumbbells or machines. This tool is also good for at-home workouts. It weighs in at three pounds and rolls up to the same size as an umbrella, so I keep it in my sock drawer.
There is one piece of heavy equipment I keep around as an indulgence. I love my Powerblock adjustable kettlebell. It makes a great supplement to my at-home strength training routines, and I feel so good the day after I use it. Everybody should have at least one guilty pleasure, and I’m proud to say mine is worth every pound.
Staying in shape is a lifestyle choice I take seriously. I like to change up my routines on a regular basis to keep things fresh and interesting. Trying new workouts also helps me maximize my gains because my muscles get used to an old routine after a few weeks.
A Full Body Workout At Home Will Keep You Balanced, Healthy, and Happy
Here is my new twelve-part full-body workout to do at home:
Stand up straight with both feet firmly planted on the mat, one foot a full step in front of the other.
Bend your knees and sink toward the mat until your back knee is just above the mat.
Jump up and switch your legs’ positions in midair, landing in the starting position with your legs reversed.
Land on your feet and sink until your back knee is just above the ground.
Do three sets of ten to complete a full workout.
11. Flutter Kicks:
Lay on your back on the mat with your legs extended.
Point your toes and raise your legs from the mat, keeping your core tight.
Rapidly flutter your legs up and down, about eight inches for thirty seconds.
12. Deep Breathing:
Sit or stand in a comfortable pose.
Inhale slowly through the nose, filling the belly completely.
Pause for a moment before exhaling slowly.
Maintain a comfortable rhythm, breathing like this for five minutes.
Keep Your Body Balanced with a Full Body Workout at Home
Staying at home doesn’t have to get in the way of a good workout. When you can’t hit the gym, it’s important to remember to follow a balanced exercise routine that covers strength, mobility training, cardio, and breathing. With a little effort, you can still get a full body workout at home.
When I include a good workout with other stress reducers, it helps me stay at the top of my game. I enjoy meditation at home and try to do a session with my Meditation with Muse headband every day. The guided meditations take me so deep that when I come up I feel like I just took a vacation!
