There are many reasons why it’s not always possible to get to the gym. It could be your kids, absent partners, lack of time and/or lack of motivation to walk through those often intimidating gym doors.  I am often relegated to my garage to train  and so I am always on the lookout for nifty little workouts that I can pull out and use.

Lucky for you guys, I asked my good friend Jess from Lazy Girl Fitness for a selection of workouts so you can start doing the same thing.  It doesn’t matter how fit you are! Here is an example of a beginner, intermediate and advanced workout to get you started.  I tried the advanced one with a good friend last week and it wasn’t pretty, we were a sweaty mess by the end of it, but it was fun and we felt amazing all day!

So give at least one of these a go this weekend and let me know how you feel after!  Thanks Jess!!!

We were a sweaty mess but it was loads of fun!

3 Home Workouts Guaranteed To Test You Regardless Of Your Ability

By Jess Robinson of Lazy Girl Fitness

No matter where you are on the spectrum of fitness, planning a workout can be tough. How long should the session go? What body parts should I work? Why am I having a complete mind blank on ideas?

We’ve all been there.

Luckily, putting together workouts is one of my favourite things, so today I’ve done not one, but three for you! All are no-equipment bodyweight workouts that can be done anywhere – from the gym to your backyard or even your living room. And everyone’s a winner because I’ve designed a beginner, intermediate and advanced session.

No excuses guys!

Beginner Workout

This total body workout is a great place to begin, full of simple exercises that will get your heart rate up and your muscles into gear, When you’re just starting out, it’s important to include ample rest time in your program. As you progress, feel free to increase the intensity of the workout by decreasing your rest time and/or increasing the intensity at which you perform the exercises.

Intermediate Workout

OK we’re starting to really work now. Part one of this workout will send your heart rate skyrocketing. Part two is all about intensity – go as hard and as fast as you can (while keeping good form) and try to better yourself with each round. This workout isn’t a long one, but you should be dripping with sweat by the time you’re done.

Advanced Workout

Yikes. You know that any session starting with five minutes of burpees is going to be a doozy! It’s a 45-minute full-body HIIT session that focuses on big movements for maximum calorie burn and finishes with a cheeky little abs circuit. If you don’t curse me by the end then I’ll be a bit surprised.
