Best At-Home and Hotel Workouts

Hey. Hi.Hello!

Now I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes I’m just TOO LAZY to head to a gym. Or, in a more specific to me situation, sometimes my gym isn’t open at a time that fits my schedule, but I still want to try and be a productive member of the fitness community. So, what’s a girl to do?

I’m glad you asked! There are about 1001 different exercises you can do in the comfort and safety of your home/hotel/wherever you’re sleeping. But, while it’s easy to hammer out a few squats and some push-ups and call it a “workout,” the real key to a home workout that could rival the gym is in sets and time.

The secret formula is pick some exercises (4-5 is usually good), and figure a high number of reps (I’d go somewhere in the range of 12-20, depending on your comfort with each exercise). Then select a set range (again, 4-5 is usually good). Lastly, I say select a time you want to complete this in. You can hammer out 20 12 push-ups in 20 minutes no problem, but challenge yourself to really work up a sweat.

If all of that sounds too complex to figure out for you, fear not! I’ve laid out three different at-home workouts you can try out, depending on your skill level. Don’t be afraid to add in ankle weights or resistance bands if you’ve got them laying around.
