Wednesdays Workout: At Home Workout Programs

IMG_4198Happy Wednesday everyone!!

Well. It is officially September!

Bring on the yummy fall spices, warm sweaters… and indoor workouts … because where I am it starts getting chilly pretty quick.

I actually really like home workouts, and to me, its just as good as a gym!

The last month or so I’ve been sharing pyramid workouts, which are a perfect at home workout idea.

I thought I would share a few of my other favorite “at home workout” programs that I have come across. Tried and tested by yours truly πŸ™‚

Here are three of my favorites:

This program is guaranteed to get you sweating!

I like that it is set up do be a 90 day program, with your workouts organized on a calendar. The workouts start off a bit easier and works up to the really tough ones.

My biggest hangup with this one is the repetition. To be honest, by the fourth week I was bored out of my mind with the warm up, it’s basically the same thing day in day out for the first 10 minutes.

But it is definitely a high impact, high intensity workout with lots of jumping and cardio. All in all I give it a thumbs up!

Jillian Micheal DVDs are not so much a program (unless you do the ’30 day shred’, which, once again, had a bit too much repetition for me) but I still really like them.

I chose the 3-DVD pack, that way I have more options and variety with my workouts. In total the 3 DVDs have 6 workouts between them.

I find these work more as a ‘space filler’ on a day that I don’t go for a run, or don’t feel like going for a run πŸ™‚

I have worked my way through all of the 6 workouts and no matter which workout you chose from the DVDs, you are guaranteed a good sweat.

This workout is the one that I am currently doing. And I’m a huge fan!!!

Kayla Itsines has two different workout guides out, and I’m working through the first one for the second time.

I love that there is lots of variety (YAY! for not being bored), and a big focus on strength training.

It’s one program that makes the most of your time. I always walk away for the workout feeling like my 28 minutes were well use!!

The only down side with this program is that you need a bit more equipment if you are doing the workout at home rather than the gym. But in my opinion it is well worth it :).

Do you have any favorite workout programs?
