If you want a habit to stick— like exercising regularly— then let's use common sense: make that habit as easy as possible.
Don't like going to the gym? Then creating a space at home is absolutely essential to having a regular exercise habit. Even if you are a gym-goer, it's still nice to have a designated home space for those days when you can't make it to the gym. For help on making the time and space to workout, read my post 4 Exercise Hacks To Get YOU Moving.
Now... what to do in that workout zone? Well, if you don't already have a habit of some sort of resistance /strength training, I'd suggest that. (If you're wondering why strength training in particular is so important, read my post Why Everyone Should Strength Train.) In this post, you'll find a list of my gear suggestions to start your own home gym. Read on for a list of versatile, practical, and basic workout equipment for any budget.
This exercise may just be your new go-to workout when you don't have extra time in your day. I have a love-hate relationship with it. I love it for how effective it is, but it's HARD. The next time you find you don't have time for a proper workout, try this as a mini-workout instead of doing nothing.
This short, effective, stand-alone workout is great for targeting the core and arms. Put on your favorite music, take your dog on a walk to get a little warm, and then try this for 4 rounds!
