One thing is for sure: home workouts aren’t going away any time soon.
With gyms continuing to be closed in many places around the world due to Covid-19, more people than ever are trying to figure out how to work out using their bodyweight or the few pieces of workout equipment they have at home.
Even when gyms do open up, gyms and workout classes will look much different than before the pandemic. My guess is that a significant portion of the population will continue to work out at home much more than before due to convenience, and for some people, fear.
I’ve been training using my bodyweight and a few select pieces of equipment for nearly a decade now, and my workouts don’t look much different than they did before the world turned upside down.
There is so much you can do using your bodyweight, even if you have strength or mass goals (just look at gymnasts for proof).
In spite of this, I’m still hearing a lot of people say they don’t know how to get the same workout they used to do at the gym at home.
If you feel like your home workouts aren’t challenging you enough, or are looking for ways to increase strength, power, or speed while at home, here are several ways to up the challenge.
