No gym, no problem :)

Not everyone can afford to join a gym or afford to purchase multiple machines for a home gym. So how do you get in a good workout without the fancy equipment?
You can get in a great workout right in the comfort of your own home by using your body weight or even some dumbbells.
What I’ve done for the past three years has changed my life for the best.
I was 210 lbs and now I weight 160 lbs and I can say that I’m leaner and ripped, by only exercising in my home and no gym at all πŸ™‚
I changed the way of eating and drinking only water throughout the day πŸ™‚
My everyday routine is simple and everyone can do it πŸ™‚
I start with stretching for about a minute and then:
Jumping Jacks – 1 set Β  = 50 reps
Push ups Β  Β  Β  Β  – 3 sets = 30 reps each
Dips Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  – 3 sets = 26 reps each ( I use the gap between the sink and the washer,,,lol ) is true πŸ™‚
Dumbbell Curl Β – Β 4 sets = 15 reps
Dumbbells are (33 lbs each), but you can start small in the beginning and then add weight while you gain strength.
Squats Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β – 1 set = 16 reps
Shrugs Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β – 1 set = 25 reps
After I’m done I drink immediately chocolate milk with no sugar at all and then I take a 20 minutes walk, just to relax my muscles, but you don’t have too.
So this is all I’ve been doing for the past three years and I feel stronger, leaner and happier than ever πŸ™‚

  1. I definitely will recommend this πŸ˜€

  2. Awesome! Where there’s a will there’s a way!
    Thank you for visiting my blog πŸ™‚

  3. Excellent, so practical and no excuses.

  4. and now if you could teach me how to slowly get to being able to do at least one pull up, i’d be so crazy happy!

  5. You can do it πŸ™‚ Doesn’t have to be a complete one in the beginning, but once you gain the strength, you’ll start doing them πŸ™‚ Believe in you strength πŸ™‚

  6. I hate the gym. It’s boring and it smells :p I agree with you, you can get an effective workout without going to the gym. I always do my workouts outdoors and I LOVE IT!

  7. Couldn’t agree more πŸ™‚

  8. I love this. So many people think they need so much special equipment, gyms, or other gadgets to lose weight and exercise.

  9. I only like going to the gym for classes. Otherwise I agree, I’d much prefer to do a workout in the comfort of my own living room or local beach/park!

  10. πŸ™‚ At home it takes less time and preparation and its just you against the mirror πŸ™‚

  11. I am an old lady who lives in a small space. I do simple exercises that stretch and strengthen my back and leg muscles so that I can continue to live independently at home. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  12. You are welcome and thank you πŸ™‚
