The idea is to combine the right workout plan with smart eating habits that enable you to achieve your physical goals. You don’t have to live in a gym, buy expensive equipment or hire a personal trainer in order to get lean and ripped.
You can definitely lose weight and tone up with these 8 home workout routines for beginners!
Here are some important things you must always keep in mind, before jumping onto any fitness plan
– Start slow if you’ve never exercised before. If not, you’ll risk injuring yourself when doing difficult workouts. So You should start early because starting out slowly means that your muscles will adapt easily
– Last but not least, it’s important to stay hydrated during your workouts. Drink water before, during, and after exercise so that you can prevent injuries and so that you have the energy you need to get through your workout sessions.
With these few things in mind, let’s jump right into 10 home workout routines for beginners!
1) Plank with a dumbbell row to tone up your back muscles
This is a great ab exercise that works your entire core as well as strengthens your biceps. You’ll need 2 dumbbells of equal weight for this workout routine which you can place beside where you are laying down on the floor or on a yoga mat. You want to use a straight arm plank, meaning your arms are not bent at the elbows. You need to do 15 reps in total for this exercise. To begin, you’ll place your right leg on top of your left in a sphinx pose. Place one dumbbell closer to you and then reach out with that arm to grab it while keeping your hips up off the ground. You want to make sure there’s tension on the muscles in your back when doing this motion so you should feel it in your upper back, bicep, forearms, obliques, and core when done correctly.
Afterward, repeat the same motion by placing your right hand next to where you placed the first weight but keep both feet flat against each other.
2) Dumbbell squat and overhead press to tone up your legs, butt, and shoulders
This is one of the best total body exercises out there! You’ll need 2 dumbbells for this workout routine that you should place at shoulder height so they’re easy to grab. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and ensure your knees are not locked throughout the entire exercise. To start, you want to bend down until your thighs are parallel with the ground before returning back up into a standing position while simultaneously pressing one weight above your head as you straighten both arms into an upright position.
You want to make sure that when you lift into a standing position that you squeeze onto those weights tight because it helps target those problem areas such as your butt and thighs. Repeat this motion for about 15 reps total before switching to the other arm.
3) High knees on a Bosu ball
This is a great exercise if you want to work on your balance and coordination first thing in the morning or after taking a break from working out for a few days! You’ll need one Bosu ball which is basically half of an exercise ball stickered with impact-resistant material so it doesn’t pop on you during high-impact workouts like this one! To start, keep both feet firmly planted onto that Bosu ball while standing tall. Then, begin bringing your right knee up toward your chest until it reaches its peak before lowering back down into starting position whereupon you’ll lift your left knee up toward your chest. Continue this motion continuously to tone and strengthen those leg muscles for 15 reps total.
4) Glute bridge with a dumbbell curl
This is another great glute workout that also works your lower back, hamstrings, biceps, and even triceps! You’ll need a resistance band and a set of dumbbells for this exercise, so if you don’t have one in the home gym already then it’s time to invest in getting some equipment because you’re going to need them for the future workouts anyway. To start, pull out enough of that resistance band until both handles are at hip-level when placed on the floor behind you while lying face down on top of that Bosu ball. Make sure there’s tension on that band before gripping onto the handles so you can feel your triceps and biceps contracting while performing this exercise.
You want to keep both legs straight and lifted into the air while pushing your heels into that Bosu ball and hips up high too. Then, you’ll curl one weight in toward your chest while simultaneously pressing the other upward until both arms are extended out straight again.
5) Squat jumps
This is another great workout routine if you’re looking for a good cardio workout because it will get your heart rate pumping! You’ll need a resistance band for this exercise which you should place beside where you are squatting. To start, stand with your feet hip-width apart and knees slightly bent before you slowly lower yourself toward the ground.
Then, explode out of that squatting position by jumping straight up as high as possible while still holding onto those handles! You want to keep your arms pulled back during this jump so they are close to the sides of your head. Maintain good form for about 15 reps total before trying it on the other leg.
6) Resistance band calf raise
A lot of athletes experience cramping in their calves which is why this exercise is great to do after cardio workouts because the more blood flow that’s flowing through your veins, the faster you’ll recover! To start, grab onto both ends of one resistance band and step out enough length so at least one foot can be placed between where those two handles meet.
You want to keep that band taut as you then lift yourself up onto the ball of each foot and hold for a few seconds before slowly lowering back down into starting position. Repeat this motion 15 times total on both legs before resting for a couple of minutes.
7) The plank
This is probably one of the best all-around exercises to do because it works so many different muscles at once! You’ll need a mat or towel or blanket as well as some water before getting started with this exercise since it’s going to work your core pretty hard too! To start, lie flat on your stomach with your forearms placed firmly onto the ground beneath you while holding that position for about 20 seconds letting those forearms slip away from you slightly.
This is when your back and abdominals are going to start burning but that’s a good thing because it means you’re toning those muscles! Gradually bring yourself back up into starting position whereupon you’ll repeat this motion three more times before taking a five-minute break to stretch out those muscles in the meantime.
8) Resistance band hamstring curl
This is another great workout routine for strengthening both your hamstrings and butt in particular which is why it’s always a good idea to keep one of these at home since you’ll likely need them for other exercises either now or down the road too! You should loop one end of that resistance band into itself several times before holding onto it securely both hands. Next, place the other end behind your back on the floor with legs extended straight out in front of you.
Then, slowly raise that leg off the ground as high as possible before extending it forward horizontally toward where that resistance band is looped around. You can then lower your leg once more into starting position and perform 15 reps total on both legs before taking a moment to rest. This is just one example of one great workout routine at home, but there are many others too!
