I love creating workout routines for myself and others. Recently, I created an at-home, 16 week fitness program and it is finally ready on Amazon!
In this post, I will be discussing more about it.
Why I love working out at home
I have been working out at home for many years now and will continue to for as long as I am able to workout! Here are the reasons as to why I like it so much:
- No mirrors- I do not like seeing myself workout. In order to see if my form is correct, I just ask my husband.
- Never busy- When I am working out at home, I do not have to be worried about a lot of people being around. I found this overwhelming when I was working out in gyms.
- No sharing and waiting- Because I am at home, I do not have to share my equipment with others. I also do not have to wait for equipment.
- No germs from a bunch of people- I am a germaphobe so working out at home lets me avoid the massive amounts of germs that can be found at gyms.
- The entertainment of my choice- I can choose what I want to have on while I am working out instead of having to suffer through someone else’s choice.
Although I don’t have very much equipment, I have been able to get in the best shape of my life!
The 16 week workout program
This at-home workout program is 16 weeks long. It has four, four week exercise routines. Each routine has six days a week of workouts which includes four days of weightlifting (with cardio) and two days of cardio/abs.
I mainly use Powerblock adjustable weights and a cardio ladder for my workouts. You can use and/or get whatever exercise equipment you want though.
The weightlifting workouts are arranged differently with a few moves switched out here and there. This is so that you don’t get bored of doing the same old thing for 16 weeks. You can also make changes such as choosing substitutions for some moves, not doing all three sets, not doing the cardio and/or using body weight only.
In regards to the cardio and abs days, you are to choose what you want to do. I give suggestions but it is all up to what kind of equipment you have at home, your fitness level and what you actually desire to do on each of those particular days.
Remember that it is all about the quality of your workout rather than the amount of time you spend doing it. For example, doing 1.5 hours of steady state cardio on your cardio days is not that much better than doing a 30 minute HIIT workout.
What is in the book
The book is a total of 129 pages long. It includes the following:
- Descriptions and explanations of the workouts
- Goal sheets
- Four workout routine sheets
- 112 exercise and diet log sheets
- two bonus workouts to try
Before you start the workout routines, there is a goal sheet. That is where you can think of the goal that you want to meet at the end of the program. It can be to lose weight, maintain weight, get stronger etc. There are then subsequent goal sheets to document your progression towards your goal (s).
With the book you are able to reference the workout you are on and write down how things went for each session-all in one place. The log sheets include places to write how much weight you lifted, the amount of sets you did, what kind of cardio you did, the difficulty of the exercise moves and what you ate.
The two bonus workouts include a tough full-body circuit and a high intensity cardio ladder workout. I would encourage you to try them sometime! They are two of my favorite workouts.
Near future plan for this book
I am looking into “beefing” this book up in the near future. By this I mean that I hope to add better descriptions, pictures and whatever else I can think of.
I also plan on creating another fitness program! There are more workout routines that I would love to share.
It is rough right now with me not having a job because I need money to make the high-quality products I want to offer. Hopefully I will find employment soon.
I would love your opinion!
It would be awesome if you tried my program. If you do, please let me know your opinion of it. I would love some feedback on it.
