What’s the point of going to the gym when you can get in an AWESOME workout and exercise at home? A home workout can be just as effective as a training session at any gym, so it’s worth considering if you want to save time and money. Here are five killer home workouts to help you get in shape in time for bikini season:
The structure of this workout is simple:
- 10 Push-Ups
- 10 Renegade Rows
- 5 to 10 Pull-Ups
- 30 to 60 seconds of Plank
Perform each of these exercises in quick succession, without resting between each movement. Only once you finish the Plank will you take a 30-second break. This will get your heart rate up and your blood pumping! After your rest, repeat the circuit four more times for a total of 5 repetitions.
The goal of this workout: increase your Push-Ups to 15, your Pull-Ups to 10, and your Plank to 60 seconds. It’s great for your upper body!
2. This trimmed down variation of an epic CrossFit workout is not for the faint of heart!

Start with the pull-ups, and do as many as you can. Once you fatigue, move on to push-ups, and do as many as you can. Move on to the squats next, and do as many as you can. Go back to pull-ups until fatigue, and so on until you’ve managed to complete all of the movements. Try to fit it into 25 to 35 minutes, or shoot for your best time!
