At Home Workout Ideas

There's no excuse for not working out. Don't feel like going to the gym? Short on time? Then get in a 10-15 minute workout at home! This doesn't mean you should neglect the heavy weights, but if you can't make it to the gym, that's no excuse not to get a workout in.

There are so many things you can do with just your own bodyweight. Here are some fun ideas I came up with off the top of my head.

50 seconds: Jump rope or jumping jacks
40 seconds: Burpees
30 seconds: Mountain climbers
20 seconds: Pushups
10 seconds: Squat jumps

40 alternating reverse lunges
20 burpees with pushup
Repeat 3-5x, or do as many rounds as you can get in 10-15 minutes

21-15-9 (21 reps of each the first round, then 15 reps of each, then 9 reps):
Squat Jumps

40 mountain climbers each leg
20 reverse lunges, 1 leg at a time
40 high knees or jumping jacks
20 squats with hands behind head
Repeat 3-5 times, or 10-15 minutes

30 seconds squat jumps
Rest 15 seconds
30 seconds pushups
Rest 15 seconds
30 seconds burpees
Rest 15 seconds
30 seconds altnernating lunges
Rest 15 seconds
Repeat 5x

1 minute jump rope or jumping jacks
15-20 step ups(1 leg at time)
10 Pushups
Repeat 3-5x

Tabatas(20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest,8 rounds):
Choose one of the following exercises to use:
Jump Rope
Mt Climbers
Lunge jumps

The possibilites are endless!! NO excuses!!


  1. Lindsay, I hate every one of those exercises. LOL But they are quite a workout. No excuses.

    I did a bodyweight routine yesterday and it kicked my booty.

    You look great, by the way! Do you (or did you) follow any routines like NROLW or BFL?

  2. Yeah, the ones you hate are usually the best ones to do!! I mean, who loves burpees, right? But they're one of the most effective exercises! Bodyweight workouts can definitely be killer.
    Thanks for the compliment. I don't know what those routines I guess I have never done them! ;)
