Fit Friday: At Home Workouts

22 Jun

Do you work out at home often or are you more of a gym goer? I belong to a gym that is only a few miles from my house (I actually run there sometimes!) so I normally just go there. But there are times when I have only 30 minutes to spare and that’s when I love finding a great at-home workout. I have very little fitness equipment at my home (literally just a jump rope and a yoga mat) for the time being, so I love workouts that don’t require equipment. This workout has been floating around Pinterest and I love it:

Full disclosure: I am kind of skeptical when it comes to at home workouts. I do cardio and strength training at the gym about 5 times a week and since I use free weights and machines a lot, I tend to be skeptical that exercises using only your body’s own resistance will make you sweat. Boy was I wrong! The first time I did this I was sweating and my thighs were definitely burning from the squats. I also did this workout more than the 3 sets it suggests. Instead I did it repeatedly for about 25 minutes.

So, what do you think about at home workouts? Are you a fan or do you prefer to get your sweat on at the gym?
