Fact: How to make your Home Workouts More Effective

4 Tips to Challenge yourself At Home

Working out at home can feel repetitive and not challenging enough.

However, you can still build muscle and lose fat by training at home.

In this new series "Gymaholic Facts" we will give you simple health and fitness information that links to more detailed articles and their references.

Here are 4 tips to help you make your home workouts more challenging.

1. Short Rest Period

Try decreasing your rest time to get more training volume in a shorter period of time.

It will also keep your heart rate high, which will make you burn more calories.

e.g. 30 seconds instead of 1 minute

2. Train Multiple Muscle Groups

If you’re used to train one muscle group per workout, try changing your routine by hitting multiple muscle groups per session.

e.g. Push (chest, shoulders, triceps)

3. Try Resistance Bands

Resistance bands can be as effective as free weights if you want to build muscle.

It’s affordable and easy to transport. You can also use them to add tension to your free-weight exercises.

4. Change Your Rep Tempo

Adding tempo to your repetitions will not only make your workouts more challenging, but it will also help you improve technique and increase muscle endurance.
