How to Get a Full-Body Workout at Home

When it comes to health and fitness, going to the gym isn’t for everybody. Not everyone wants to deal with parking to crowded workout spaces on top of monthly fees – and this is if you even have the time to go at all with long work hours and keeping up with the kids’ schedules.

For some, working out at home just makes more sense, but people often wonder: Can I get a full-body workout at home? Or is it possible to create a home workout routine to reach fitness goals?

The good news is that you can absolutely get a full-body workout at home with minimal equipment that engages your core and works out multiple muscle groups. There’s never been a better time to build a home gym to bring all the intensity of your workouts to the comfort of your own private space. With the right equipment and instruction, at-home full-body workouts utilizing total body movement are just as effective as working out at the gym.

Upper Body Workout

In this video, Fit Mom Influencer, Le Egwuatu of Fit Foodie Le, shares an upper body workout routine for your arms, back, and shoulders that only requires a set of dumbbells. Get ready to do some bicep curls (with a twist), get those arms extended, and expand your range of motion with a shoulder workout.

Exercises featured:

  • Bicep Curl + W Press
  • Crossover Push-ups
  • Arnold Press
  • Double Bent Over Reverse Row and Double Upright Row

Lower Body Workout

In this next video, Le shares a lower body workout routine to strengthen lower major muscle groups, including your legs, thighs, hamstring, and glutes using only a kettlebell. Don’t forget to bend your knees and make sure your grip is always secure on the kettlebell when descending into your squat position to prevent injuries.
