5 Equipment Free Exercises to do at Home

5-equipment-free-exercisesI’m writing this after eating 4 slices of Papa John’s pan pizza and 3 pieces of their cheese and bacon stuffed breadsticks. I didn’t eat it all in one sitting. Half for lunch, half for dinner. The results are the same. I could vomit.

I’m ashamed of the consistency in my weight loss posts the last couple of weeks. Or lack of weight loss- posts. I’m optimistic I will get my shit together one day and lose the weight I need to be satisfied. Today was not that day. Tomorrow will be!

In the meantime, here are a few at home exercises I do when I’m not shoving pizza and breadsticks down my gullet.

  1. Squats1e3783e04b30771a504ebaab8da03f7c
  2. Push Upsdog-doing-a-push-up
  3. Planksunknown-2
  4. Leg liftsimage
  5. High Knees/Butt Kicks

There’s two ways you can decide to do these workouts

  • Give each exercise a number of reps and then complete a certain number of sets. For example:

10 squats, 10 pushups, 30 second plank, 10 leg lifts, 10 high knees, 10 butt kicks= 1 set, complete 2-3 sets depending on your level.

OR

  • Give each exercise a time limit and do as many reps as you can in the time allowed. Record the number you were able to complete in that time. For example:

30 seconds squats, 30 seconds pushups, 30 second plank, 30 second leg lifts, 30 seconds high knees, 30 second butt kicks. Lengthen the time if you need more of a challenge.

Pretty quick, easy, and painless as far as exercising goes. I should probably do a round or two or twenty when I don’t feel like I’m going to explode anymore.

Update on my current weightloss:

Week 9: I gained 1.4 lbs, bringing the total since Jan.3 to 4.2 lbs lost, and from my heaviest weight ever 41 lbs.

After writing this post I did have two solid days of eating right and exercise, but it wasn’t enough to combat the other days of not. But I will continue on and hope to lose a few more pounds before my trip to visit family next week!

  1. Weight loss is tricky. What worked one week doesn’t the next. And we all yo-yo a bit up and down. As long as the overall progression is down then these little blips wont add up to much. BUT you may need to change some part of your routine to kick yourself out of the slump. Visiting family can be diet disaster too! So make a plan before you go! Good Luck!!
