Why Do Basic Workouts at Home?

Trekking is a wonderful hobby and pastime. Not only are you introduced to fresh air, you are also exercising at the same time. People who take time to trek feel more relaxed and at ease in their homes. Some are even not contented with the work out the journey has provided. At times, they also enjoy workout programs in their homes.

At Home

Working out at home is extremely easy. You are not bound to follow anybody else’s orders and you are free to start and stop at any time. There are, however, some downsides to this.

One downside is that there is no one to guide you along the way. The main reason why people employ the aid of instructors is the difficulty in doing some exercises. There needs to be someone who can teach the proper execution of these exercises. If there is fitness equipment involved, they would also know what to do. Without proper training, we could hurt ourselves if we attempt it on our own. Most home workouts solve this lack of trainer problem by providing instructional videos.

These instructional videos usually contain basic fitness information so that one knows the importance of physical activity. It may also include some safety tips to ensure no accidents occur in your residence. More importantly, there are tons of exercises included in the video which are portrayed in various levels so that one can follow whichever level he prefers. Usually, one person performs the basic movement while another does the intermediate and another handles the expert.


The typical exercises being taught are the same ones taught during PE in school. In order to be proficient with the insanity workouts, we must first be good with the basics. First basic exercise to master is the sit-ups. Sit-ups are a good way to remove belly fat. In order to perform this exercise, one must lay flat on his back and have his feet rest against any firm surface. To start, simply raise your back until it lifts off the surface you are lying on. Repeat several times until you feel your abs burning.

Another simple exercise which is frequently neglected is the push up. It is the basic form of the bench press. It targets the chest and is performed similarly too. If you push the barbell up and down when you do a bench press, the push up is the same. You instead lay flat on your belly and push up from the floor. The movement in the arms is the same. The only difference is that you are lifting your weight. That is why it is the basic form. Our bodies weigh an average of 120 to 200 pounds. In bench presses, weight lifters reach up to 300 and even more pounds.

Intense workouts make use of these basic ones so it is important to be prepared. It is better to start out with the basics and be well-versed on how they are performed. Sooner or later, when you are ready, insanity workouts will be a piece of cake.
