There will be days you simply don’t want to go to the gym. I understand, and I’ve been there. That’s why I put together this video of 37 exercises you can do from the comfort of your own home. Working out at home alleviates the temptation of skipping workouts. For these exercises, you can use a kettlebell, dumbbell, small child, or your body weight alone.
To keep things simple, pick 2-3 exercises for both lower and upper body, as well as 1-2 core exercises, and perform them in a circuit. I like to alternate muscle groups in a circuit (see below), but you can structure it however you’d like. Use either time or reps for each exercise, whichever you prefer.
If you need a little extra help to get started, I have a free 14-day course to teach you about strength training at home. There are 30+ videos, 14 daily workouts, and nutritional guidance as well. You can learn more about the course by clicking here.
