How and what to train at home

Have you ever thought about buying fitness equipment to train at home? You buy your weights, barbells or elastic bands and start imagining yourself exercising regularly, feeling fit and healthy. However, after a few weeks, that new equipment becomes just another piece of decor because you don't know what exercises to do at home or how to create an effective training program.

The COVID-19 pandemic led many of us to buy a mat along with some weights and elastic bands so we could exercise at home while most gyms were closed or with restrictions. And be careful, it's great, but buying fitness equipment for home and using it effectively do not always go hand in hand.

Most of us are not fitness experts and designing a training program gets (quite) out of our hands. In the end one of two things always ends up happening: either we get bored of doing the same routine over and over again, or because we don't see the expected results we end up becoming demotivated and parking the material in a corner.

How to train at home and see results

If you want to start doing exercises at home and get results, the first thing you have to do is specify and be very clear about these 7 points:

  1. What are my goals? Before you start, set clear goals. Do you want to lose weight, gain muscle, improve your endurance or just stay active? Having clear goals will help you establish or choose the right training programs.
  2. How can I achieve this goal? Stop and think. If your goal is to strengthen your knees because you have had a small injury, the most logical thing is to do exercises that help you strengthen your legs, including those muscles that surround the knee, such as squats or heel raises. Follow the training plan consistently and record your progress to stay motivated.
  3. Explore Variety: Don't limit yourself to just one type of exercise. Try different types of training to keep things interesting and challenging.
  4. What do I do if I start to lose motivation? It is best to join a community that helps you stay motivated, share your experiences, ask questions, and get support from other members. Motivation and camaraderie are essential for long-term success.
  5. Take Advantage of Flexibility: Take advantage of the flexibility of exercising at home. Choose a schedule that fits your lifestyle and commit to staying consistent.
  6. Track Your Progress : Keep track of your progress. This will help you stay focused on your goals and give you a sense of accomplishment as you see improvements in your fitness.
  7. Learn from professionals: Yes, okay, this is probably not something you want to hear but to train truly effectively, unless you have experience, you need professional guidance . Nowadays there are many online training platforms with which, for a small price, you can ensure that you are doing the correct exercises and in the proper way, avoiding injuries. Our favorite?
