Getting to the gym can be tough sometimes! Sure you could go for a run, but that can get monotonous, and honestly there are much more effective and efficient ways to exercise. In fact, if your goal is weight loss, going for a long slow run could be one of the worst things you can do. Give one of these 10 workouts a shot and let me know how it goes in the comments.
Ten Sample Workouts You Can Do At Home
The 10-10-20 goes like this:
Use one arm (or leg) to perform 10 reps of a given exercise. Use the other arm to perform 10 reps. Then use both together to do 20. You’ll only want to do 2 sets of each.
First, the 10-10-20 squat. Do a 1-leg squat with your rear leg up on a step or bench. The front leg should be doing all the work. 10 per leg. Then use the other leg, then do 20 with both legs together.
Try the same with pushups, leg raises, hip raises, pulldowns with an elastic band…anything you can dream up.
The point is to go from a unilateral movement to a bilateral one (one hand to two hands.) This will allow different musculature to help out when you’re most fatigued, but still perform reps as strictly as possible while you’re fresh, and get a LOT of volume in during a short time frame.
Pick a movement, like a squat. Perform as many reps as possible in 20 seconds, then take a 10-second break. Repeat for 8 sets. Then pick another, like a pushup. Total your reps; next week, try to do more.
