Ask An IMG Trainer: Great At-Home Workout Ideas

We’ve all experienced a canceled practice or workout session whether it’s because of nasty weather outside, staff being out of town, construction at the facilities…. Whatever, it happens, but it doesn’t mean it’s an excuse for you to give in and skip training. The best athletes know that what sets them apart from the rest is their dedication to remaining fit and prepared regardless of their circumstances.

For this ‘Ask An IMG Trainer’ blog post, we decided to chat with Victoria Druehl, a Physical Conditioning Coach at IMG Academy in order to help you find ways to workout at home.

Workout Types

  1. Circuit Style: Pick five to six of your favorite exercises listed below and do a set of each with minimal rest between. After you make it through the circuit, take a rest before doing the exercises again three or four more times.
  2. Interval Style: Pick an exercise, for example: goblet squats, and do as many as you can for 20 seconds. After your set you then rest for 10 seconds and repeat eight times. Then, rest for two minutes, pick a new exercise and repeat.
  3. Superset Style: Pick lower body and upper body exercises or lower body and core exercises and do sets of them directly after each other without rest. After you finish the superset, rest for one to two minutes.

Below are some workouts you can do in circuit, interval, or superset styles with little or no equipment.

Upper Body

  • Pushups: multiple variations and grips
  • Arm circles/arm pulls
  • Dips

Core

  • Planks: multiple variations
  • Mountain climbers
  • Dead bug: on your back alternate moving side to side and raising your leg to your hand
  • Sit ups
  • Crunches
  • Scissor kicks
  • Toe touches

Lower Body

  • Body weight squats
  • Lunges
  • Glute bridges
  • Lateral squats
  • Lateral lunges
  • Wall sits

So mix and match away! Staying inside and working out in the privacy of your own home can truly be fun, and when practice starts up again, you’ll be glad you didn’t slack off on your training.
