If you’re looking for the best in home training, you’ve found it here, my friend. As a strength and conditioning specialist and personal trainer here in the Atlanta, Georgia area for over 10 years, I have used the following weight training methods to instruct people on the best ways to train anywhere and At any time. We like to refer to this as home training, but it really just means being able to train wherever we are!
The best workout at home!
The best home exercise routines involve bodyweight training. In today’s economy it is very common to hear people complain about prices and concerns about various expenses. This is something that is particularly common in the fitness industry because those who don’t see fitness as a priority often perceive it as more of a luxury than anything else. Maybe this is why we in America are the fattest country in the nation, but I digress. The point is that the best workouts don’t require much, if any, equipment. If spending is your excuse for NOT exercising, then that’s all you’ve got; an excuse! The value of a truly excellent training program lies not in the amount of equipment, bells and whistles it has, but in the effectiveness and dynamics of the training itself.
Truly forceful exercise must involve the manipulation and resistance movement of our own body. This is the most natural state of the human body, but many of us do not practice it. I’m a big proponent of implementing training methods like calisthenics, plyometrics, and various other resisted body movements. You can perform push-ups, burpees and jumping jacks in the comfort of your own living room if you need to. If you have a job that requires you to travel regularly, then this is another great training tactic you can adopt so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’ll be able to make it to the hotel gym.
Bodyweight exercises like calisthenics and plyometrics keep the nervous system in shape. You maintain strength and endurance throughout your body in your joints, tendons, ligaments, and of course your muscles. By engaging in full-body movements that will consistently challenge you as a whole, you’ll get a much more impactful workout and save a lot of time in the process. It’s not about how long your workouts are, but how much work you can do in the shortest amount of time. This is the key to achieving fitness. To benefit the most, you need to increase your work capacity. I firmly believe in this and my most successful clients have benefited more for this very reason.
