even with all the fitness equipment of a commercial gym some people can’t seem to find the right routine.

for a sport or improve cardiovascular endurance? Your goals will dramatically impact what type of routine you
For general health benefits, it is recommended that individuals follow a strength training routine 3-4 times per
week and get some form of cardiovascular exercise everyday. Taking this into consideration, you will want to follow
a muscle building routine and add high intensity interval training at the end.

When it doubt, do pushups. Contrary to popular belief, you can actually build strong, defined muscles using only
bodyweight exercises such as the pushup. Pushups are also a convenient chest exercise because they can be modified
in many different ways.

of pushups can help target your upper, lower, inner, and outer pectoral muscles.

almost every muscle in the legs as well as the abdominal muscles. To get a killer leg workout in at home, try
preforming around 6-8 sets going to failure. After these, move on to jumping squats and wide-stance squats. Trust

targeting almost all the muscles in your back, arms, and abdominals. Because there are so many variation of the
exercise, you can modify it and adjust it to you skill level or the muscles you want to target.

challenging, consider bringing dumbbells or resistance bands into the equation. These will help you isolate even
more muscles at home. Because they take up very little space, they are perfect for someone who wants a quick,
intense workout at home.

only requires creativity and the willingness to work hard! Remember to individualize your workout to fit your needs
and be consistent - you will be on your way to a ripped, strong body in no time!
