This is my core quick home strength workout. You can add in a bit of cardio (e.g. walking, running, cycling etc…) as well.
1. Push ups
Do 3 sets of each with 30 – 60 second rest in between. You choose the number of reps you can do. Start with a number you can do then increase when you can; whether it is each day, week or month as you get stronger.
It doesn’t matter where you start. Start at 5 or 10 to begin with. It doesn’t matter as long as you start. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50….. As you get stronger you can increase your reps.
Do this at least 3-4 times per week! Best time is of course when you wake first thing. These are my core exercises. I normally slide out of bed onto the floor and just do it – no questions.
If you are score then have a rest day. If you are score in only one area you can just rest that area. To maximise results you can schedule your own rest days in between, but if you are sore definitely take a rest day or rest that part of your body.
For those that can’t do full push ups then start on your knees. When you can easily do 20 reps x 3 then you can go to full push ups starting back at 5 or 10 reps in each set. As they get easier increase your reps, so you are pushing yourself to improve.
How to do the exercises

Remember to stretch!
Remember a good nutrition plan is the key to good health and weight control, so remember to work on that daily! You can build good muscles doing exercises but it doesn’t feed the muscles for better results/growth and also it doesn’t remove the layer of fat covering them.
