There are many of us that either can’t afford a gym membership or else we just don’t have the time to travel there and back. Sometimes it is just too inconvenient or sometimes it is none of these it is just the fact that we are always on the road. Sometimes we just place too much trust in our affordable health care insurance. Don’t let this deter you from building functional strength and muscle.
All it takes to build muscle is some resistance that will stimulate growth. This needs to be done habitually though if you want results. Too many people get comfortable with an at-home workout routine and fail to actually push themselves to the point of developing mass.
Even though you wont be at the gym having good nutrition is just as crucial. You will need the nutrients to build and repair your body as you go throughout the day. Make sure that you are getting enough protein, enough vitamins, and especially the calories to build a sustainable workout program that builds muscle and mass.
This is body building with your own body weight. Think pushups, sit ups, pull ups, and squats. All of these use gravity and your body weight to build an effective exercise regime. It really takes a little extra effort and it may be slower but you can build muscle just like any body builder out there.
So what are some way that you can make your at-home workout experience more effective?
Track your results
Many people just work out until they are tired. This just doesn’t make for a very effective workout routine and can often lead to a plateau in muscle growth and increased strength. Make sure that you not only track results, but that you switch your muscle groups each day so that you give one set of muscles a break each day. This will lead to faster results and much like crop rotation, it really adds to your overall routine.
Set apart a time for exercise
Its important! So set apart at least an hour each day to building your muscles and basically distressing your mind through effective exercise. It may take sixty days or so to actually get in the habit of exercising every day but it will happen if you stick with it.
Set goals with a partner
Even if you can’t get someone to help motivate you by working out with you, it is important to be accountable to someone. This really adds to the progress all-around of your body and mind during
