Thinking of getting fit with the amount of free time available currently?
But you are not sure how to start when all the gyms are closed and you are stuck at home?
I will be sharing 10 full-body workouts that you can do at home!
Full-body workouts are a workout regime that is intended to target most of your major muscle groups in one workout session.
Moreover, the more muscles you work, the more calories that you would burn. Hence, you get the most bang for your time.
Getting fitter also means you are being more and more active. The more energy that you spend daily, the more fitter you would be!
So let’s jump in!
- Standing Military Press
- Standing Alternating Dumbbell Curl
- Standing Behind the Neck Shoulder Press
- Barbell Curl
- Good Morning
- Body-weight Push-Up
- Barbell Clean & Push Press
- Dumbbell Clean & Push Press
- Diamond Push Up
Options on How to Execute the Workout according to your fitness level:
- Familiarise with the exercises first
- Do 2 sets for each exercise one by one.
- Rest intervals between sets should be no longer than 45-60seconds.
- I would recommend to start light, so the rep ranges would be high around 15reps and above until you start to feel the muscle burning.
- Split it into 2 circuits, 5 exercises each circuits. (Circuits mean you go through all the number of exercises that you have set, with no rest in between.
- For each circuit, do 3-4 rounds for 10-12 repetitions each exercise.
- Rest intervals between each round should be no longer than 60-90 seconds.
- Weight intensity should be heavy enough to make you struggle to get the last 2-3 reps in.
- Combine all 10 exercises as 1 big circuit. Once you start from exercise no1, you should not rest/stop until you completed all 10 exercises.
- 10 complete exercises back-to-back, is considered as 1 round. Do a total of 5 rounds with 2minutes rest between rounds.
- The rep ranges similar to intermediate level, 10-12reps and weight intensity should be heavy enough to make you struggle to get the last 2-3 reps in BUT you have to be gasping for air as well.
- For advance person, the goal is to challenge not only your muscular endurance but also your cardiovascular endurance as well.
If you are confused on how to perform those exercises that I listed, here is a video of me showing all the exercises.
Feel free to tag along as I do it.
NOTE: Always remember to do your warm-ups before starting any physical activities. In the video, I used a resistance band for upper-body, and a hip-circle for lower-body.
