Creating workout activities for yourself may be hard, but it’s quite not too difficult and may even be enjoyable while you realize the basics.
So, how do you design your own full-body workout? Here are some things to keep in mind:
Assess Your Situation
How much time can you dedicate to exercise? If you can do an hour a day, that’s brilliant. If you have a spouse, three kids, and two jobs, then maybe that you can most effectively do thirty minutes every other day. That’s fine too. Whatever your time dedication is, developing the most efficient workout is significant.
Determine Your Place
Where will you exercise? At a fitness center? With some weights at home? By doing simple exercises? You should determine your place for exercise before planning your workout routine.
What Exercises Should I Do?
Keep it simple, silly.
You should be doing a full body workout that you are able to do two or three times a week. You should have a workout that has at least one activity for your quads (the front of your legs), butt and hamstrings ( at the back of your legs), your push muscles, your pull muscles, and your core.
For your quads, do some squats, lunges, one legged squats and box jumps.
For your butt and hamstrings, do some hip raises, deadlifts, straight leg deadlifts, good mornings and step ups.
For your chest, shoulders, and triceps, do the overhead presses, bench press, incline dumbbell press, push-ups and dips.
For your core such as abs and lower back, do planks, side planks, exercise ball crunches, mountain climbers, jumping knee tucks and hanging leg raises.
Pick one from each category above for your full body workout and you can be sure to work out every single muscle in your body!
Add Some Variety
If you do the same movements, three days every week, for months, you and your muscles will lose interest. Do bench presses on Monday, then do shoulder presses on Wednesday and dips on Friday. Decide on a different exercise at any time when and your muscles feel excited.
How Many Sets Should I Do?
You should do 3 to 5 sets per exercise, excluding warm-ups. You should keep the number of repetitions per set within 8 to 15.
Keep Track Of Everything
Keep a workout journal! You should write down how you feel after a day of exercise. Do you get faster or stronger every day? Do you get more fit? Depending on your progress, you can do more or change your routine.
So that’s it! These are our tips for your DIY workout. Don’t forget to stretch after you work out and warm up before exercise. Be fit everyday!
