We all know how tough it can be just to squeeze in even 1 hour for fitness per day. People have very busy lives, being obligated to working the majority of the day while trying to find time to love and cherish our families. There is a big trend of people signing up for gym memberships and honestly I just think it's a really good marketing campaign. I know full well that you don't need 1 piece of equipment to obtain a healthy, strong body. Sure, much of that equipment may help you in your process, but is it absolutely necessary? No. Many of us don't really like to workout in public with other people anyways. Honestly, that's what lead me on my quest to find and share these full body at home workouts for others to enjoy also. Just stick to the plan, much of this can be done is less than 10 minutes per day, but trust me when I tell you it's going to kick your butt if you give it your best! If you put 30% effort in,  you will get 30% of results, so push it! 

Three Day Full Body At Home Workout Plan

Day 1 

Keep in mind: Do the most repetitions you can in the amount of time stated. You will see already why this is going to be tough. Do your best on Day 1, even if you can't do everything continue pushing until the end. Don't give up thinking "I can't even do this so it's pointless." Instead tell yourself "Next time I am going to get further than I got today." Dig deep and push out those last few, painful reps!

Decline push-ups (30 seconds)(Feet raised on a bench or wall)
Side plank—left (30 seconds)
Push-ups (60 seconds)
Side plank—right (30 seconds)
Incline push-ups (30 seconds)(On a bench or set of stairs)
Rest 60 seconds focusing on breathing and resting.

Repeat this 4 times. Feel like jello. Rest. You have done well. 

Day 2

Do these exercises in this order to give your muscles a chance to rest in between while you work a different group. 

Lateral/Side lunges (10 reps each leg)
Leg raise (20 reps)
Body weight squat (20 reps)
Plank hold (30 seconds)

Complete this 5 times.

Day 3

Do each of these exercises to the best of your ability with maximum effort for maximum results.

Jumping Jacks (30 seconds)
Side Plank (30 seconds)
Squats (30 seconds)
Tricep Dips (30 seconds, use a chair or bench)
High Knees/Running in place
Plank (30 seconds planking with the utmost ferocity)
Wide armed push ups (30 seconds)
Crunches/Sit-ups/Twisting Crunches

Repeat this 3 times and you will thank yourself later!

Complete this 3 day rotation to the best of your abilities. It will be tough on some days, especially in the beginning, but as you keep digging deeper and pushing harder and harder everyday you will build a little bit more strength and endurance all while burning calories! Tell yourself you can do it, because you can! It's mind over matter! Consistency is key and results will come!
