Having equipment at home can be crucial for those moments you get instant motivation to workout or the days with little motivation to make it all the way to the gym. These are my favorite at home essentials. A lot of my items, I was able to pick up slowly over time for pretty affordable prices. TJ MAX and similar stores have sections with different workout gear on major sale. I got my ab roller for $7 bucks!! I usually get all my workout gear from stores like TJ Max, ross etc. If I can get the same sports bra or workout shorts for significantly cheaper…duh, I am going to. Don’t feel you have to buy everything at once, grow your personal gym slowly. I had only an ab roller, then I bought resistance bands and thanks for a friends ex boyfriend for leaving his kettlebell, I came up on a 20lb kettlebell. There is also the jump rope, it is also a very affordable and small foot print piece of equipment that can burn those calories of quick.
It is important to stay an active healthy babe and that does not mean a certain size or weight but to live a healthy lifestyle and treat your body well because it is the only one you get!
I hate counting so I tend to do my workouts by times.
Try doing each exercise for a minute and if you can’t do a full minute make sure you keep track of your progress.
1 minute each for 4 rounds.
1. Jump Rope
4.Push ups- any style that you do to get them done.
5.Walking squats with a resistance band tied around your calves. When the resistance band is tied around your legs it provides great resistance. Do different ranges of motion with your leg to reach different muscles in your legs and glutes.
Or try out a at home Crossfit style WOD : My brother is a personal trainer and made this plan for me and I thought what a perfect routine to share!
*** To perfect the moves check out youtube for proper form or to clarify the move. Simply type in the exercise and there is a youtube that is there to help, that I am sure.
