Best Shape of My Life With Home Workout

by Kendra

My most difficult but rewarding workout was actually accomplished at home. My brother was a personal trainer at the time and I enlisted his help to whip me into shape.

Not wanting to spend the money or feel self conscious at a gym, my brother outlined a 6 day workout program for me to implement at home.

Four days out of the week were dedicated to strength training. Two days were allotted for the upper body, and 2 were allotted for the lower body.

The upper body training consisted of free weights ranging from 5 to 12 pounds. I would do 3 sets of twenty of everything from knee-push ups to bicep curls.

The lower body consisted of 3 sets of 20 sit ups, 3 sets of 20 lunges holding onto 8 pound weights, and 3 sets of twenty calf exercises using a stair.

Sounds like a lot but each day only took around 30 minutes so if I felt up to it, I would also do around 30 minutes or more of cardio.

On the other three days I had without weights, I would spend 2 of them doing 30 minutes of cardio and one of them completely resting. No exercise whatsoever.

Although it was hard to maintain, I was in the best shape of my life with that program.

I started getting a little greedy and slipping in more cardio sessions and trying to eliminate my rest day. Then my knees began to hurt. I actually ended up having to stop the routine all together so that I could heal.

That was a lesson worth learning. It IS possible to over do it. Believe me!

Note from Dr. Dan


There are people who will say that the reason they can't get into shape or lose weight or follow an exercise routine is that it is too expensive.

And yet you've shown what can be done with a program at home using a few hand weights. You said that, "I was in the best shape of my life with that program."
