Starting a workout routine can be a daunting task but really it isn’t and well worth it once you begin to feel the positive effects of a healthy body in conjunction with healthy eating. Finding the time to exercise is a big factor in starting a routine which is why a lot of people are turning to a firm work out at home.

No need for a gym or to buy equipment. All you need is your own body weight, floor, wall, chairs, basically, any home furnishing will work. You can use milk cartons or a big laundry detergent bottle for weights, just adjust the liquid to fit your strength needs. If you have carpet then you have cushioned, if you do not then a yoga mat would be a good purchase.

The benefits of a good aerobic workout raise your heart rate, breathing, improves heart, lungs, and circulatory system functions. It challenges and strengthens the cardiovascular system by increasing oxygen in your body, push waste products out of your body and pumps blood to working muscles.

An important first step is a dynamic warm-up! Before starting any workout routine you have to warm-up your muscles for up to five minutes. This will loosen the muscles by getting them ready for the routine ahead maximizing your fitness performance.

Warming up before a workout gives better performance and fewer injuries. A dynamic warm-up can make a big difference in your fitness performance. You should always use active movement like hops, rotations, and chest compression to loosen the muscles and get the blood pumping.

A warm-up will be more dynamic if you warm up the muscles you are planning to work out that day. For example, if you were doing weights then it would be best to do rotations of the neck, torso, arms, and legs. If you are a runner than a light jog right before the run would be ideal. The Warm-Up

The Dynamic Warm-Up – Beginners

If you’re just starting on your fitness journey here is a great beginners warm-up that can be done in the comforts of your home.

  1. Jump ropes for 30 seconds
  2. 10 Body squats
  3. 5 Leg Lunges
  4. 5 Elevated push-ups/wall push-ups

A simpler routine would be to simply march in place while swinging your arms across your chest, high knees and toe touches. Your warm-up should be 4-5 minutes long. You to make sure your muscles have loosened enough not to cause yourself an injury. Tight and constricted muscles will work against one another, therefore, wasting energies that would benefit your performance.

Do what you can do. Only you know your limitations. Listen to your body.

Quick Cardio Blast – 27 Minute Work-Out (no equipment needed)

Each exercise is 60 seconds.

  1. Butt kicks
  2. Squats
  3. Burpees
  4. alternating side lunges
  5. Jumping Lunges
  6. Forearm plank (60 sec. hold)
  7. Alternating side planks (60 sec. hold)
  8. Mountain climbers
  9. Burpee jumping jacks

Repeat each set 3 times. Push yourself as much as you can and do your best! It’s okay if you can’t get through the entire routine the first time. The more you do it the better you will become.

You can shorten your time from 60 seconds to 30 seconds each exercise. Build your strength and keep pushing through it! Soon you will be able to do the routine easily and eager to move on to one more challenging.

You should get into a habit of working out at least 30 minutes, 3 days a week. The last stage of the routine is the cooldown. Although, is not as necessary as the warm-up it is still beneficial to your body.

The Cool Down – Stretching is Optional

A cool down is a routine that allows your body to relax and lowers your heart rate. It is designed to get your body back to its normal pace for quicker recovery time.

Stretching is an excellent way to get your muscles to maintain an increased range of movement and flexibility post work out but you are not limited.

Alternative methods can be yoga, meditation, a slow jog, or a walk. You do not have to have a set routine. Anything you can do that will lower your heart rate will work as a cool down. Below are a few examples of exercises you can do.

I am not a fitness expert or guru by no means but  I will give advice and suggestions but ONLY what I personally have experienced. Thank you!

  5. Thanks for sharing this interesting and informative article. 27 minutes at home cardio blast is really an awesome thought of exercise. It will really be awesome if it will help me in improving breathing, improves heart, lungs, and circulatory system functions and as well as challenging and strengthening  the cardiovascular system by increasing oxygen in my body, no need of going to the gym and I just need to follow your guide in the 27 minute cardio blast. You did a great job. 

    1. I strive to be as efficient as possible with my routines and give as much information as I can. I know working out can be hard when you are first starting out. Thank you for the comment.

  6. Nice article. Exercises are very important for healthy living, and this one in particular routine in particular is less costly as you make a gym off your living room. Nice routine, although I personally would not pass the dynamic warm up. I usually get exhausted quickly and would not have enough strength left for the main deal. Can I change that?

    1. Of course, you can change that. Start off with jogging in place for about 30 sec. then do some neck and arm rotations for another 30 sec. Next do high steps, 30 sec. It’ll warm you up enough and not exhaust you before your workout. Let me know if you have more questions! Thank you

  7. This is awesome! 

    I really needed a good regimen to help me get into shape, and I think I can devote 27 minutes a day to it. Admittedly, I’m pretty out of shape but I’m trying to fix that!

    Would you recommend someone who’s just starting out power through these workouts 7 days a week? Or is it better to take a day off every now and then?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. I’m glad you found it helpful. Some would say to power through but realistically I would start out at maybe 3-4 days and space them. When I started I worked out every other day except weekends but once you start to get into the habit it will almost feel awkward to not workout. Your body gets used to it and you will eventually love the energy it gives you.  It will be hard at first but once you get into the routine of doing it you create your own rhythm with it.
