Top workouts to do at home

Top workouts to do at homeLife can get busy, and oftentimes we find ourselves traveling or otherwise unable to get to our preferred health and fitness facility for a workout. Using only your own body weight, these versatile moves can help you create a total-body workout that fits your needs and abilities. There are many workout s that can be practiced at home to keep the body fit and healthy.

Pulling

Pulling exercises like rows and pull-ups use your body weight against you, and allow you to control the degree of difficulty by manipulating leverage. They also happen to be two of the most primal, most functional exercises you can do, creating a larger anabolic response than isolation exercises, leading to greater gains in size and strength.

Pushups

One of the oldest exercises is still one of the best. From primary school to the Marines, pushups are a great test of upper body strength — but that doesn’t mean they can’t be fun or original. Watch this video for variations on the standard pushup, all of which add difficulty. Master these, and you will be guaranteed to turn heads.

Lunges

No home workout routine would be complete without a good lower-body exercise. Enter the walking lunge. You don’t need barbells, dumbbells or kettlebells to make this exercise challenging; you just need strict form and persistence. But if you are looking to make this harder for yourself, you can hold dumbbells by your side or a plate above your head.

Planks

Planks are one of the most basic ab exercises available, but don’t be fooled: They may look easy, but they will have you sweating and shaking in seconds. The main benefit is to your core, which is forced to brace itself against the weight of your body. Standard planks work your upper and lower abs, and side planks target the obliques. As with all body-weight exercises, you can manipulate your body position to increase the degree of difficulty. Try, for example, doing a side plank with your upper leg raised off your body.
