How To Jump Start Your At Home Strength Training Workout

Author : Nolan Fisher

Have you been thinking about strength training at home? Are you looking for a way to save time and stay in top physical shape? Do you wonder if it is possible to get an endurance testing strength workout without leaving the house? First time strength trainers and fitness buffs alike are often surprised to discover that it is possible to build muscle and burn fat in one's own living room! Follow along with this article's three step process in this article and you, too, can jump start your own at home workout plan.

Step 1 - Get your equipment

The first step to launching your own at home strength training workout is finding a space that is both large enough and free of clutter. The amount of space you need also depends on the type of equipment you decide to use. Some strength trainers choose to use equipment like dumbbells, free weights, or stability balls. Resistance bands are another excellent tool for strength training and they take up very little space. If you are low on square footage you can go without equipment altogether and still experience a muscle building strength workout. Just make sure you have a space large enough to fully extend your arms and perform push ups, sit ups, and lunges.

Step 2 - Design a workout plan

You truly have endless options when creating your own strength workout plan. If you decide to use dumbbells you can choose from hundreds of different choices of exercises that will build muscle in your chest, back, biceps, triceps, legs, and calves. Head online or to your local library to decide which areas you want to target first. Resistance band workouts are an alternative to dumbbell strength workouts. Resistance bands are less expensive and not as bulk as dumbbells and also can be used in myriads of creative ways to work nearly every muscle group. Some at home strength trainers choose to pair their resistance band training with a stability ball. If you decide to train without any equipment, you can still build a grueling strength workout with multiple sets of classic muscle building exercises like squats, lunges, incline push ups, and crunches.

Step 3 - Be Consistent

Consistency is the proven method to achieving one's desired results in any workout plan. After designing your new strength workout program, commit to the amount of days you will exercise each week. Start slow and work your way up to full weeks of high intensity workouts. A beginner might exercise three days per week and work his way up to five or six. Allow yourself at least one full day of rest per and pay attention to your daily sleep schedule. Don't forget that proper rest and a healthy diet are vital to the success of your at home strength training program!
