People may think that you need a fancy gym with all the right equipment to get in shape, but you don't. There are simple workouts that you can do to get in shape without ever having to leave home. Here are some ideas to help you with your at-home workouts.

1. Squats

There are various types of squats you can do to mix up your workout routine to help keep your body moving. You can try air squats, side step squats, sumo squats, and jump squats. If you wanted to take things to the next level, you can even do weighted squats while holding various sized objects. 

2. Planks

This is one of the best core workouts around and requires little effort to start seeing results. Start with holding yourself in plank position for 30 seconds and increasing as you see fit. If you need modification, try placing your knees on the ground.

3. Lunges

Like squats, there are various types of squats you can do to mix up your workout routine. You can try front lunges, back lunges, and even side-to-side lunges. This is a great exercise that targets your lower leg muscles.

4. Dancing

Dancing is a great exercise to help get fit and can be stress-relieving, it is also a full-body workout. You don't have to be a pro dancer to do this exercise either. You can go to Youtube and search Dance Workouts if you need ideas. There are thousands of videos to choose from and you can do them from anywhere.

5. Sit-Ups

This is a fantastic exercise that will target your core muscles and start shedding that stubborn belly fat. Start by completing 10 in a set then increase as needed. You will find that as you train your body, it will become easier to complete the exercise.

6. Bridges

This one targets your glute muscles. There can be various ways to complete this exercise. You can complete one continuous hold for a certain amount of time or you can do interval holds where you hold it for a certain amount of time then release. The choice is up to you.

7. Wall Sits

This can be considered to to be a full body workout with a primary focus on your core muscles. It is usually completed by holding yourself for a certain amount of time. Try starting with 30 seconds and increase the time as needed.

8. Push-Ups

The starting position is similar to a plank. 1 up down means you have completed one pushup. Try starting with 10 pushups in one set. If you need modification, try placing your knees on the ground.

9. Mountain Climbers

The starting position is also similar to a plank. This can be completed at your own pace. By doing this exercise, you build strength, endurance, and cardiovascular stamina.

10. Burpees

Full body workouts are amazing, especially if they can be completed in one move. Try doing burpees tabata style: push for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds. This is a great way to get your heart rate up quickly and burn fat.

Always remember, finding ideas for workouts and staying motivated can be difficult especially if you are at home. You need to push yourself to achieve the best and results will follow. You got this.
