Best at home workout routines

BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!! Ugh, the stupid alarm is going off at 5:45 am so you have time to get to the gym, eat breakfast, shower, and do whatever else you need to do before getting to work on time.  Sometimes, we just don’t feel like making that effort.  So instead of killing yourself, sleep in an extra 30 minutes and do a quick at home workout to keep yourself in shape, build muscle, and burn fat.

Here is a killer bodyweight workout you can do in your own house that will get the heart pumping and muscles burning.  You won’t feel guilty about missing the gym and you will feel great for the entire day knowing you got a workout in, PLUS some extra sleep.

You can also do this work out when traveling if you don’t have access to a gym.  Some of us that travel for work don’t always have a routine morning and this workout will fit in your schedule even if you are waking up in a hotel room on the road before your workday!  It’s also great when you are on personal travel and want to keep yourself fit while you are having fun!  I used to do this work out in my Las Vegas hotel room before going out for the night and it worked wonders, especially considering the amount of calories I consumed in Las Vegas!  Let’s face it, some of those calories from the buffet dinners really want to come home with you no matter how firmly you believe in the mantra “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”!

So, here’s our killer bodyweight workout.

Go through it 4 times and try not to rest between exercises.  If you need to rest, do it between each circuit and keep it to less than 2 minutes for any rest time.

10 Squats

15 Push Ups

10 Lunges per leg

10 Mountain Climbers

30 sec Plank

Make sure you do it 4 times through the sequence, resting as little as possible.

That was a pretty good workout right?  You aren’t done!

Here is the finisher that is going to make you hate me now, but thank me later when you’re lean and strong.

Killer Finisher

Pyramid pushups and arm presses – 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

Ok, so here is the deal.  You do one pushup go to your knees and press your arms skyward (raising the roof motion/overhead press without the bar) one time.  Then do two pushups, go to your knees and press your arms skyward (raise the roof/ do your overhead press) two times.  Then 3 pushups and 3 arms skyward, then 4 pushups and 4 arms skyward, etc.  If you can get all the way to 10 the first time I will be very impressed!  This is an awesome finisher that will leave you weak and exhausted, but it’s totally worth it.

Post in the comments how many you did on the first try!
