Whether you don't want to go to the gym because of germs or you just want to do a workout at home because it's a lot more feasible to find the time, it's always nice to have some go-to at-home full-body exercises to try; that way, if you ever need something to do at home, it's super easy for you to do. Depending on what you are most interested in doing, this article will list three different workouts that you may want to dabble in.
High-intensity interval training, or HIIT workouts, are a big trend right now and are a great way for you to easily get a full-body workout. The whole concept of HIIT workouts is that you do as many small workouts as possible in a short amount of time. For instance, during a HIIT workout, you might try to do as many jumping jacks as you can in a 30 second time period. Then, you move onto another workout like as many high knees as you can do in that time period and so on. The kind of results you want from your workout will determine the specific type of HIIT workout that you will want to do.
Boxing is another thing that you can do from your home. If you don't have a home gym or much space inside your home, then consider hanging a bag inside of your garage where you have plenty of room to move around the bag. The great thing about boxing for a full-body workout is that you can get an arm workout by hitting the bag, a leg workout by doing kickboxing, and an ab workout by flexing your abdominal muscles when you are doing either one of these workouts.
If you have the money in your budget to get a treadmill, then you can get a great full-body workout just by running on it. Depending on your posture, you can work out your arms, legs, and core during a run as long as you have a long stride and really use your arms as a power source. You can also burn more calories if you run in intervals, such as jogging for 5 minutes and then sprinting for two minutes.
Try these workouts at your home to get the full-body exercise that you're looking for without ever having to go to the gym.
