Pairie Eco Thrifter offers a comprehensive home workout with Skip the Gym, Sweat at Home 2, saying “Just like saving money and investing in our financial future, we need to put that same effort into investing in our health. Eating well and being active are the keys to a long healthy life.”
Darren presents a selection of body-weight exercises you can do at home (my take – Tabata-cise them!), posted at Lertno’s Training, saying, “Bootcamp exercises aren’t only for boot camps. Everyone can even do these types of bodyweight exercises at home.”
Lori and Michelle offer a very cool looking home workout – starting with 100 reps of ‘high knees’ and continuing on from there, posted at Pure 2 Raw, saying, “Loved this 100 workout, it was a mix of heart pumping and arm/leg burning moves. We enjoyed the numbers going down as the workout moved from one exercise to the next, haha.”
My own take on great, time-efficient home workouts, remains a 20 minute Tabata workout, posted at Naturally Radiant – it’s a whole body workout that will have every muscle in your body screaming for mercy, at least the first time you do it. I recommend starting with fewer reps and gradually working up to the full 8 sets of each exercise.
The Best Home Workout – Exercise Routine, posted at How Do You Lose Body Fat, is a fantastic video showing exactly how to do each of the exercises in this 30 minute whole-body workout, with great, detailed explanations. Check it out!
