Build serious muscle at home without any equipment with this program
Home workouts can either be effective or not when it comes to building muscle. Most home workout programs aren’t structured properly to help those that follow it build muscle. This happens because of 5 common reasons. In this video, I show you how to add muscle size with a home workout by fixing the most common mistakes seen in home programs.
The first mistake is thinking that you are limited to only the equipment that you would typically associate as weight training equipment. That is a big oversight. In fact, some of the best things you can use at home are things that you wouldn’t normally think of as workout equipment. The furniture, the walls, the floors, counters, etc can all be used to make every home workout exercise harder. As the home exercises become harder, their ability to help you build bigger muscles doing them is improved.
The second mistake commonly made is not doing hard enough versions of common exercises. For example, the pushup is a classic chest building exercise. That said, many people can do lots of reps of this exercise which turns it more into a muscle endurance exercise than a bulking movement. If you change how you do it however you can quickly make it something that overloads your pecs in a whole new way and becomes instantly more effective.
The third mistake is the tendency to count reps rather than simply taking your sets to failure. Counting reps is something that happens in both home and gym workouts. The biggest problem with this is that often times, people will stop a set well short of actually taking it to the point of muscle overload. If you take it to the point of failure you will know that you used the necessary intensity to elicit a change in your body.
Home workouts tend to fail at building muscle when you lose sight of the fact that equipment limitation is a bad excuse. You can actually unlock a bunch of new home workout exercises just by using your own clothes! Wearing socks on a hard wood floor provides a bunch more ab, arm, upper body and leg home exercises for instance.
Above all, the worst thing you can do if you are working out at home is not to do anything. If you think that you can’t get in a good enough workout at home and instead opt to do nothing, you will never build the body you are capable of.
