I love lifting weights. Like, really love it. I just can’t get enough of those sore muscles. I definitely think every gal (and guy) should add weight lifting to their lives. That being said, I think you can get an equally as challenging workout at home with zero weights. Yeah, that was probably confusing. Sometimes you have to be a little creative, but most body weight workouts are probably harder to me than a typical gym session.
Body weight workouts are great because obviously, you can do them anywhere. There really are no excuses in this case. It’s easy to find or create a tough, full body workout that’s 30 minutes or less. That’s nothin’ in the whole scheme of things. 30 minutes of pain :).
Today’s home workout is a pyramid style workout: start with 5 reps of each exercise, then 10 reps, then 15, then 20. After you complete 20 reps of each move back down to 15 reps, then 10, then 5. On the surface this doesn’t sound too bad but it catches up to you!
I haven’t done a pyramid style workout in a while it’s about time I add these back in the rotation!
So, now I need your help, do you prefer to see workouts with no equipment, gym workouts, or both on the blog? Do you workout at home or the gym?
