How To Stay Fit at Home.

Since I’ve been a young man I’ve always wanted to stay in shape and build muscle mass. When I was a young teenager, I rode my bike to the gym every morning, sometimes as early as 5 or 6. I was motivated!

When our gym closed at the beginning of this pandemic I, like many people, was thrown out of my routine. Yes, I could run or ride my bike, but I wanted to continue focusing on building strength in specific areas. I was determined that I wouldn’t end up a pudgy couch-potato by the time the quarantine ended!

So that got me thinking, “How DO I stay fit while I’m stuck at home during a quarantine?”

I thought about what the most important and simplest movements were for a simple full-body workout. Here is the compiled list in no specific order of importance:

  • Push-ups
  • Squats
  • Pull-ups
  • Planks
  • Crunches

These 5 basic exercises work all the major muscle groups of the body and I am able to do many of these exercises with little to no equipment. The equipment I did need wasn’t too expensive.

All the equipment I got was a Pull-up bar, a Jump-rope, Kettle-bell set, Resistance bands, a yoga mat, and a small hand towel so I didn’t sweat on everything. With these pieces of gear, I was able to create my own miniature gym in one of the small bedrooms in our home. Another advantage was that I could assemble this mini-gym wherever and whenever I wanted.

At the bottom of this article, I have attached a PDF that has my workout on it for you to do too. The gear I used as stated earlier was not too expensive.

Here is the workout:
