Any form of physical activity that our body isn’t used is considered a workout. There are different ways to workout. And home workouts are one of them. Recently home workouts are in the limelight. Especially because of the pandemic. And along with its popularity, it has brought a lot of skepticism along with it. So, are home workouts effective? Or is it just another way to waste your time?

To be honest it totally depends on you and how you can make it more effective. So, here are some common fitness goals and how you can achieve them using your very own home workouts.

      1. Strength/Bulk

 Strength training at home can be frustrating due to the lack of equipment and extra weight. But it isn’t totally impossible. And here’s how you can do it too: -

  • Sticking to fewer exercises.
  • Using your Bodyweight as an advantage to do heavy workouts.
  • Using basic/compound exercises, for example, Pullups for your back, Pushups for your chest, and Squats for your legs.
  • Focusing on Progressive overload as a means to grow, can’t increase weights? Then increase reps, can’t increase reps? Then increase sets and so on.
  • Focusing on eating right and hitting your protein goals along with a calorie surplus
  • Tracking your workouts. (Sets, Weights, Reps, etc.)
