This Workout Gives At-Home Routines a Good Name

workout for loss weight

One of the best parts about high-intensity interval training —especially tests you haven’t tried before—is that it keeps your body and mind guessing with back-to-back strength and cardio intervals. (Not to reference you score all of these benefits.) That’s exactly what’ll happen with this “tornado” workout, intended by Grocer expert Sarah Kusch. It optimizes your time and thrills you into a state of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or for short, so that your body keeps burning calories long after your workout is over.

You’ll only need a set of dumbbells and an exercise mat for this routine—and, OK, a bottle of water. Hydrating is key for this one. Want more  to choose from? Try our 30-day challenge or play around with these 5 moves you can do wherever.


Top 25 At-Home Workouts

1. Supermans

Who doesn’t want to think they have super powers?  Great stretch as well when you picture trying to touch the opposing walls with your fingers and toes.

Push-Up - American Council on Exercise

2. Push-up

The Push-up is an oldie but goodie.  You can modify intensity by changing hand placement.

3. Contralateral Limb Raises

Don’t let the name scare you – this is great for toning those troubling upper body areas.


4. Bent Knee Push-up

A great starting option if you struggle with the correct form using a full Push-Up.

5. Downward-facing Dog

Slow and controlled movement very important – wonderful calf stretch.


6. Bent-Knee Sit-up / Crunches

Most people don’t know how to perform a proper sit-up/crunch – that is until now.  Core Power!


7. Push-up with Single-leg Raise

A great progression from a regular Push-Up but remember to keep proper form.


8. Front Plank

This is harder than it looks!  Your back and abs will love you.


9. Side Plank with Bent Knee

Great way to add in hips work without the need for any equipment other than your own body weight.


10. Supine Reverse Crunches

Advanced crunch that targets the entire core region.  If you feel pain in your back – STOP.


11. Cobra

This is my “good morning, time to wake up” exercise – great way to get ready for a busy day.


12. Squat Jumps

A bit of heart rate work while working on total body movement.


13. Forward Lunge

If I could only do one leg exercise for the rest of my life, a lunge would be my choice.


14. Forward Lunge with Arm Drivers

Start with the regular lunge and work up to this advanced exercise hitting some core areas.


15. Glute Activation Lunges

Often missed, this Gluteus workout is the MAXIMUS.


16. Glute Bridge

Real people do yoga – and this is a great entry exercise to the power of slow and controlled movements.


17. Hip Rotations (Push-up Position)

I’ve always had problems finding a good hip exercise – do this before any push-up exercises so you can stabilize your body before fatigue.


18. Side Lunge

Advanced in terms of needing to include some movement into what becomes a static pose.


19. Side Lying Hip Abduction

A common mistake is raising the leg too high in this exercise.  Small but effective movement.


20. Side Lying Hip Adduction

Even smaller movement than Abduction but equally important.


21. Side Plank (Modified)

Advanced exercise that brings together a combination of core exercises.  If you feel joint pain, STOP.


22. Side Plank with Straight Leg

Don’t forget to breathe on this exercise – exhale on the exertion.


23. Single Leg Stand

I do this one while brushing my teeth in the morning – some call it crazy, I call it multi-tasking.


24. Standing Calf Raises – Wall

My shins are my weak points, thus finding a great exercise like this to improve that area is important.


25. Supine Pelvic Tilts

May not look like an abdominal exercise, but you will feel the burn after a set of these.

Over the years I’ve tried many methods suggested by both my friends and family but none of them seemed to work out for me until I chanced upon this Holy Grail where I’ve lost almost 33 pounds in just 1 month trying it out! I can now fit in dresses two sizes down and receive many respects from not only my lovely husband, but colleagues and girlfriends about how great I look right now! I’m here to share with you guys because I am really thankful and hope someone who also needs this can experience similar results as me! Here is the link to my Holy Grail method!

Hey guys, did you know there’s this new revolutionary “2 week diet plan” that thousands of other women and I have experienced incredible results with? It’s been well over a month now and I’ve not only lost 23 pounds, but also more importantly, upheld the weight which I’ve shed! We all know the fight to keeping the weight from creeping back on is the toughest part of this process! So, for my kindred nuns out there who genuinely wants to be in an overall better shape and are strong-minded to go a few sizes down to fit into those adorable little dresses which you had your eyes on, I highly
