Best Exercises to Boost Your Home Workout Gains

Let's cut to the chase: exercising at home can be just as effective as going to the gym. Contrary to what some people may have you believe, you may exercise well using only your bodyweight or simple equipment like dumbbells, kettlebells, or a suspension trainer. By increasing your reps, adding more sessions per week, aiming for faster times, using more advanced movements, or using special techniques like slowing (or speeding up) the tempo of your exercises, you can continue to challenge yourself even as your strength and fitness improve.

You can also do cardio by using your own bodyweight. In reality, whether you start a practice of bodyweight exercises or jogging, according to academics at the University of Pristina, has little bearing on your general health and fitness. The researchers divided a group of college students into three groups. One group engaged in endurance training, another performed strength-training circuits, while the third group did nothing. The findings demonstrated that the exercise-doing groups shed weight and had lower final body fat percentages. The researchers came to the surprising conclusion that both forms of exercise were equally good for your cardiovascular system because of how identical the findings were.
