Over the past month, so many people have been impacted by the virus that is rapidly spreading, which has forced many of us to not be able to travel to the gym or studios due to their temporary closure.
Or, the quarantine this virus has provided has, instead, forced some of us to want to take this solitude at home to work on our health + fitness goals.
After many requests, I decided to put 8 easy-to-follow workouts together in one download for anyone looking for ready-made at-home workouts.

ABOUT THE WORKOUTS
Starting a new workout routine to do from the comfort of your own home can be difficult, especially if you don’t know where to start. That’s why I created this download! To help you begin your journey or get some fresh, new workouts.
These lifting workouts take 25-30 minutes to complete if you are pacing yourself to complete all 3 rounds with about 2 minutes of rest in between each [totally doable + will get your heart rate up!].
I include 2 sets of workouts for the following: legs/glutes, biceps/back, shoulders/chest, + triceps/abs. If you want to mix it up + keep it fresh, you can do each workout #1 during one week + each workout #2 during the second week. Then, keep rotating them!
These are actual workouts that I pulled off of the Notes section of my iPhone to share with you ladies. So, they’ve all been tested out manyyyyy times by me. All you need is your body, some space, + a few sets of dumbbells, like these!
# OF WORKOUTS
If you are new to working out/lifting, I recommend starting with just 1-2 workouts a week + slowly adding on to them as your habit builds. You should definitely make sure you rotate between each body part for optimal results!
You need between 5-15lb of weights to complete all of the workouts below, depending on your strength level. If you are brand new to working out, I recommend investing in a set of 5lbs + 8lbs for these exercises. Purchase more as you get stronger! Click HERE for dumbbell recommendations to purchase.
It is VERY important that you get familiar with the proper form to use for every exercise you ever do while working out. To learn, please simply Google the exercise + there are so many amazing videos/pictures/articles that quickly break down form. You’ll memorize them quickly once you do each a few times.
I do not include cardio because, honestly, all I do for “cardio” is focus on getting my 10-12,000 steps in each day + I am mindful of my nutrition. I recommend counting your steps each day + investing in a step tracker you can wear. You can always go for a run for a workout + even simply tack on a light mile run with any of the workouts below.

To keep yourself motivated + on-track, I provided you with a weekly workout planner in this download! Feel free to print + fill it in each week. Click HERE for a blog post on how to use this planner + click HERE to download a digital copy that you can edit in my resource library.
