At Home Workouts

Finding time to go to the gym can be difficult and the price of joining a gym can add up. Here are ten workouts to do at home to help get in shape in the comfort of your own home.

Squats: Complete three reps of ten squats. Stand with your legs shoulder width apart and act like you are sitting in a chair, squatting until your knees are bent at a 90 degree angle. If you have weights, hold one in each hand to add difficulty.

Pushups: Complete three sets of ten pushups. Be sure to bend your arms at a 90 degree angle and keep your back straight.

Planks: Hold a plank for 30 seconds, but go longer if you can! Make sure to keep your back straight and level.

Crunches: Complete three sets of 15 crunches. Lift your chest to your knees and tighten your stomach as you do each rep.

V-ups: Complete three sets of 15. Lay with your back flat on the ground and put your legs straight up. Reach to your toes and come back down, then you have competed one rep. Be sure to keep your core tight!

Jumping jacks: Three sets of 15 jumping jacks are a simple, but easy, way to get your cardio in.

Wall sits: Sit against a wall, keep your knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Be sure to not let your feet slip out from under you. Try to hold the wall sit for at least 30 seconds, but go longer if you can!

Heel touches: Lay flat on your fat with your knees up. Alternate sides to touch each side of your heels. By keeping your core tight, you will have the best results. Complete three sets of 15.

High kicks: Run in place and kick your knees as high as you can each time. High kicks will get your heart pumping. Go for 30 seconds, take a break, and repeat two more times.

Calf raises: Either flat on the small or a small ledge, do calf raises. Do three sets, one set of 10 with your toes pointing straight, another set of 10 with your outwards, and a last set of 10 with your toes pointing inwards. Lift up onto your toes, then slowly come back down, not quite touching the ground.
