Home workouts have received a huge influx of popularity in the past couple of months. Many people are still stuck at home despite some gyms beginning the process of reopening. However, many people may find that they do not want to go back to gyms, and instead are turning to home workouts. One of the easiest ways to find workout plans is through the internet, with YouTube serving as a fantastic resource for people who want a plethora of challenging and free workouts. I’ve tried a multitude of different fitness channels and videos and have listed some of my favorite ones below!
The Fitness Marshall’s Dance Cardio: This is one of my newest discoveries but is probably my favorite channel. This channel features tons of cardio style dance videos which are set to popular, upbeat songs. I love these because I never feel like I’m working out, but instead feel like I’m having fun while also burning a ton of calories! This channel keeps the videos short, but you can combine several videos to make a playlist of your favorite songs to dance to.
Tracy Campoli’s Bat Wings II Workout: Arm workouts can be tricky to do at home as many people have very few weights they can use, if they have any at all. Tracy’s workout is great because you work your arm muscles (especially your triceps) without the need to add any weight or use any equipment. You can of course add weights if you choose, but believe me when I say you will still feel the workout without them.
Sami Clarke’s 10-minute Abs: I’ll be honest…I hate doing abs. I find a lot of ab routines to be too repetitive and very few seem to give me the results I’m looking for. This hasn’t been the case with this workout, however. Sami Clarke keeps the workout short but still makes your abs burn by the end. I frequently feel it the next day, even though it’s just ten minutes. I also love that the video is challenging while still feeling completely possible to do.
If these videos aren’t for you, no worries! There’s a ton of different videos in all sorts of styles to be found on YouTube. Remember that everybody is different so what works for one person may not necessarily work the same for you.
