The No Equipment Home Workout Anybody Can Do
Check out this familiar scenario: You want to lose weight but you never have the time or energy to lose it. You’ve tried working out at home after finding some exercises online but you quit after not being strong enough to complete the program. You then joined the gym but never felt really comfortable there – everyone just seemed so much fitter then you ever could be. This has led to you resigning to the notion that you will be big forever.
If this is you then it’s important to remind you that you are not a hopeless case. Over at Breaking Muscle, there’s a great post which lists a solid workout routine that will help you achieve your weight loss goals:
1. Wall Push-Ups
Starting position is with your feet about two feet away from a wall and your arms extended. Bend your elbows until you just about kiss the wall. Push yourself back to a standing position. Try to keep your elbows from flaring out to the side. Instead of looking like a letter T, you should look like an arrow.
2. Chair Squat
Starting with your hands crossed on the opposite shoulder and seated in a chair. Stand up. If this is too easy, instead of coming to a complete rest in the chair every rep, slowly lower yourself until your butt touches. Don’t bounce yourself off of the chair, though. That way you’ll keep the muscles in your legs loaded throughout the entire movement.
This workout should take around 15-20 minutes so try and do it at least three times a week. As time goes on, you’ll feel stronger and each exercise will become easier. When this happens, make sure to add on repetitions so you can continue to build muscle. Combine it with a sensible diet and we guarantee you will lose weight.
