Ultimate Workout Checklist - It’s Not What You Think!

Author: Home Core Fitness | | Categories: Fitness Coach , Nutrition Coach , Personal Trainer


If you’re like most people, when you think of a workout checklist, you probably think of a list of exercises to do at the gym. But there’s more to a great workout than just physical exercise. To get the most out of your workout, you need to have the right mindset, focus on your form, and be properly hydrated.

As fitness experts at Home Core Fitness, we’ve created an ultimate workout checklist to ensure you have everything you need for a great workout, no matter what your goals are. This checklist has everything you need to make sure you’re getting the most out of your workout.

1. Equipment

You don’t need ANYTHING but yourself. A bodyweight workout can be done for strength, agility, and flexibility training. There are many benefits to bodyweight workouts, including the fact that they can be done anywhere, at any time. They are also a very effective way to get a full-body workout, as they work for all major muscle groups. You can do a bodyweight workout at home, at the gym, or even in the park.

2. Pick three effective exercises

One lower body move, one upper body move, and one core/balance move. For example

  • Squats (lower body more) - Squats are a very effective way to tone your legs and butt. They work your quads, hamstrings, and glutes.
  • Push-ups (upper body move) - Push-ups are great for strengthening the muscles in your chest, shoulders, and arms.
  • Planks (core/balance move) - Planks are good for strengthening the core muscles, including the abdominal, back, and hip muscles.

3. Ensure you complete your exercises with a set number of reps or time

If you are doing a set amount of time, ensure you are working at a challenging pace but not so challenging that you can’t complete the set. Also, when doing a set of reps, be sure you are challenging yourself, but not so far that you cannot complete it.

4. Repeat!

Repeat the circuit of exercises with some variations on each move for at least twenty minutes.

5. Follow up

Follow up your strength training with a ten-minute stretch session, focusing on holding each stretch for thirty seconds or more.

6. Add more reps

To progress, add more reps or more time to your exercises, or complete more rounds for a longer workout overall.

After your last set, cool down for five minutes. This will help your muscles recover and prevent cramping.
