5 Best Exercises To Do at Home

These 5 exercises are easy to understand, give you a well-rounded total body workout, and you can do them almost anywhere. Try to do them as often as you can to wake your muscles up and increase metabolism. Repeat them 3 times, plus add jumping jacks for 1 minute between each for a full workout, but remember you only want to do total body strength workouts every other day. You want to give muscles 48 hours to rest and rebuild.

  • Squats – Mix it up by holding it for one minute in low squat, pulsing at the bottom of the move or going slow down for 3 counts, up for 3 counts.

  •  Lunges – You can mix these up just like with the squats. Try holding a stability ball overhead, weights by your side, or changing up the pace.

  • Plank – Plank on feet until fatigued or mix it up by bringing the plank up onto your hands, or lifting one foot or one hand
  • Pushups – You can mix these up by going slower, holding the move at the bottom for a few seconds, or lifting one foot

  • Side Plank – mix it up (forearms, on hand, lift hips up and down, pulse hips up high)
