You’ve probably thought about exercising at home on numerous occasions. You could certainly make room in the living room for this, or use that spare room you already have and stock it with the best accessories for your daily exercises.

You can also probably squeeze in at least half an hour a day for doing your workout routine at least four times a week, but where do you start? Sometimes it’s hard to make a plan and stick to it, or it’s hard to figure out which exercises you should and can do at home.

Luckily, there are endless possibilities for home workouts, and here are some of the best examples.

Push-Ups

Push-ups are probably the easiest but the most effective exercise you can do at the comfort of your home gym. All you need from “gear” is your own body and some perseverance.

This is one of the best exercises for developing upper body strength and for strengthening your shoulder joints. And if you want to make it more difficult, simply adjust the position of your arms and bring the elbows closer to your ribs.

Supermans

Another one of the easier exercises to perform, but it can be difficult at times. The Supermans are designed to help you make your lower back stronger.

All you have to do is lay face down on a mat and lift your legs, squeezing your glutes, and lifting your arms straight above your head—just like Superman.

Front Plank

Plank looks like an easy exercise to do, but if you’ve ever held that position for at least 30 seconds, you know how hard it can be.

What you need to do is simply get down in a position similar to a push up one, but only with your elbows bent and rested on the floor and tighten your core and glutes and hold for as long as you can.

This exercise engages your whole body, from head to toe, and it can help you tones those muscles nicely.

Side Plank

Just like the front plank, this version will work on your entire body, but it will put more focus on your abs on the side and your lower back.

In order for your spine to be held upright and stay strong, you need to develop and strengthen these muscles, plus it could relieve any lower back pain you might have.

Simply lie on your side with legs straight and prop your whole body on your elbow. Tighten your core and raise the hips until you’ve formed a straight line with your body.

All that’s left to do is hold the position and breathe deeply. Then, switch to the other side and repeat for several sessions.

Dumbbell Squat

Squats are a great exercise and are one of the best moves for building overall strength. And if you add a couple of dumbbells into the mix you will have a better focus on the technique and you will get the best out of this exercise. Plus, your range of movement will increase.

All you’re going to need for this are dumbbells of the desired weight and hold them in each hand, position your legs at shoulder-width and start with more shallow squats. Later on, you can do a deeper squat and get better benefits.

Dead Bug

Dead bug crunches are perfect for working on your core stabilizers and your abs. This means that the muscles you’re going to tighten aren’t going to be just for show, but they are going to help you be more efficient in doing other sports and physical activity.

Plus, they will hold your body tight and straight. What you need to do is lie on your back, hold hands above you, above the shoulders and lift your feet up with knees bent at 90 degrees. Then straighten your leg almost touching the floor and straighten the opposite arm above your head.

You don’t need to pay for expensive gym memberships in order to have a healthy and strong body. There are numerous different exercises that you can do at your home gym, with or without any accessories.

You just have to be creative and patient and you will get the desired results with enough effort.
