A fast and effective total body living room workout that can be done anywhere – no gym membership or equipment required!
As someone who has lost over 60 pounds and maintained the loss for over 12 years, I can tell you that fitness is a huge part of my healthy lifestyle. One of the most common requests I receive from readers is a workout that can be done anywhere, without any equipment or gym membership!
Well my friends, your wish is my command. I’m thrilled to finally share a total body workout, complete with a warm up, core section and cool down that can be done anywhere.
Whether you do it at home while a baby naps, in a hotel room during a work trip or at the park with your friends, you now have no excuses for getting your sweat on! As a reminder, always listen to your body and start slow if you’re just starting a new fitness routine. Enjoy!
Spend at least 5 minutes warming up before you begin the workout. Repeat this circuit two times.
Body Weight Squats x 10
Hamstring Leg Swings x 10
Knee Pulls x 5 on each side
Repeat this circuit 2 times.
Begin in plank position with bent elbows, resting your weight on your forearms. Keep your body in a straight line and core tight. Without changing your body posture (don’t let your hips sag! I’m still working on this!), place your left hand on the floor, then your right hand. Push your body into the “up” position of a pushup then lower yourself back onto your elbows into plank position, one arm at a time. Repeat 10 times (20 total movements).
Stand tall with your legs straight. Keeping your legs straight, bend forward and touch the floor with both hands. Walk your hands forward while keeping your legs straight so that you end up close to the pushup position. Walk your feet forward in small steps keeping your hands on the ground so that you end up back in the starting position. Repeat 5 times.
Start in a push-up position with your arms fully extended, keeping your body in a straight line, and up on your toes. Quickly bring one hand up to tap the opposite-side shoulder, placing that hand back on the floor before repeating to the opposite side. Repeat 10 times (20 total taps.)
Lower Body: Repeat circuit 2 times.
Stand against a wall and slide downward into a squat position by moving your feet forward until your knees make a 90-degree angle and your hamstrings are parallel to the floor. Hold for 30 seconds.
Starting in a standing position, step your left leg behind you and to the right so that your thighs cross. You will bend your knees almost as if you were curtsying. Be sure to keep your knee aligned with your front ankle. Return to standing then switch sides. Repeat 10 times on each leg.
Standing in a normal position, take a big step out to the right, sweeping your left leg behind you while bringing your left arm across your body. Next, step left, bringing your right leg behind you and your right arm across your body. Rotate side to side, 20 times total.
Start in a deep squat position then twist your torso to the left, before jumping up and spinning to the left 180 degrees (halfway around). Land softly in a squat then repeat in the other direction. Repeat 10 times.
Core: Repeat circuit 2 times.
Hold for 30 seconds each side
Hold for 30 seconds
Cool Down: Hold each stretch for 20 seconds.
