5 Home Workouts for Beginners

It's no secret that we still wanna look good this summer... but with the lockdowns and quarantines all over the globe, gyms or any workout places isn't an option right now. When people think of working out, we automatically assume that the gym is the answer. 

But no. Your home is one of the perfect places to do some basic workouts if going to the gym isn't an option. If these workouts are performed correctly and on a regular basis, it can be as effective as a gym workout too!


Here are some exercises you can easily do at home: 

JUMPING JACKS. This workout is one of the most efficient home workouts. It's a whole-body workout that you can do almost everywhere. It'll help raise your heart rate and can also get you to move your entire body.

How to: Complete as many reps as possible. Begin by standing with your legs straight and arms on the side. Start jumping legs open and spread your feet slightly wider than hip-distance while bringing your arms above your head. Jump again and bring your legs back together, this time with lowering your arms. Repeat.


PUSH-UPS. Don't forget your shoulders! This workout is beneficial for upper body strength. With proper form, they can strengthen your lower back too! It can be done anywhere you want to... while watching Netflix too! 

How to: For beginners, start with 10 pushups. Begin by kneeling on the exercise mat and bring your feet together behind you. Bend forward to position yourself in a high plank with your palms flat, hands shoulder-width apart. Feet should be together behind you and your back should be flat. 

This time, lower your body toward the floor. Continue to lower yourself until your chest or chin touches the ground. Maintain a straight line from head to heels. Press upward with your arms and continue pressing until your arms are fully extended at your elbows and you’re back in the plank, at the top of the pushup position. 

For best results, challenge yourself to do more every day.


LUNGES. Sculpt and tone your bodies with lunges! It's a simple workout you can do at home too! It'll help you build your buttocks and thighs. Plus, it can also help with weight loss as it works for large muscle groups on the lower body which helps reduce fats.

How to: For beginners, start with 10 lunges. Start by standing up tall and step forward with one foot until your leg reaches a 90-degree angle. Your other knee should remain aligned to the ground. Raise your front lunging leg to return to the starting position.

For best results, challenge yourself to do more every day.


SQUATS. Work that butt! Start building muscles all over your lower body. It is one of the simplest and best workout that doesn't need fancy gears and the like... just make sure to practice proper form for best results. 

How to: For beginners, start with 10 to 20 squats per day. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Slowly bend your knees but don't lean forward. d push your hips back as if you’re going to sit in a chair. Slowly push up to return to the starting position.

For best results, challenge yourself to do more every day.


PLANK. This is an excellent workout if you're aiming for some abs! Aside from the much-loved abs, it can also help to stabilize and balance your body for other activities. 

How to: You can choose between 30, 45, 60 seconds. Start by facing down with your forearms and toes on the floor. Elbows should be directly under your shoulders for proper form while your head is relaxed and you should be looking at the floor. Keep your body straight without bending. Hold this position for 10 seconds or more.

For best results, challenge yourself to do more every day.


Aside from these, you can add reps during your entire workout. You can even multi-task while working out... Netflix and Plank? Try it! Have someone to workout with you at home? Why not!

You'll just have to be creative and have fun... also drink your water and keep yourself hydrated and challenge yourself to do more. Good luck!
