The Killer 20 Minute Living Room Workout: Get Your Sweat on at Home

Not all of us have time to go to the gym every single day that’s why finding a living room workout can be so awesome.

Because being frustrated that you don’t have time to make it to a specific place to do a specific workout can kind of suck, having a workout you can do at home is very nice.

Living Room Workout

Bodyweight workouts may not be exactly what you want to do, but it’s better than nothing. Doing something is always better than doing nothing.

Causing your muscles to burn and work hard, even if it is just for 20 minutes is helping your body improve. You are becoming better than you were, you are getting stronger.

Here is the workout:

  • High Knees – 30 seconds
  • Squat Jumps – 15 reps
  • Push-ups – 5 reps
  • Burpees – 10 reps
  • Lunges – 10 each leg
  • Squats – 8 reps
  • Push-ups – 5 reps
  • Lunges – 10 each leg
  • Push-ups – 7 reps
  • Squats – 10 reps
  • Squat Jumps – 8 reps
  • Wall-sit – 1 minute
  • Push-ups – 10 reps
  • High Knees – 30 seconds

Repeat the above sequence 3 times if you’re really wanting to feel the burn. If you choose to do it 3 times, it should take you no longer than 20 minutes.

For the workout to be as effective as possible, give yourself as little rest as possible in between each exercise. Try to push yourself as hard as you can.

High Knees

High knees is a great way to start off any workout because it gets your heart rate up quickly and warms up muscles all over your body.

You don’t necessarily want to jump into a workout without doing any kind of warm up since you’ll be putting yourself at a much higher risk of injury. High knees will work your muscles to the point where they are ready to push themselves to the next level.

Squat Jumps

These are going to give you great legs. By exploding off the ground and jump in the air, you are incorporating every muscle from your waist to your toes. Be sure to land softly as well because you want to reduce your risk of injury as much as possible.

Landing stiff legged or flat footed will lead to more ligament damage.

Push-ups

This may be one of the most fundamental exercises you can do. Push-ups are going to show you exactly how strong you are right away. Even with a modified version of push-ups, they are not the easiest exercise.

Burpees

Burpees are really going to give your entire body a burn that you will feel right away. All of your muscles will get work.

If you are feeling bold, you can add a push-up to get a little extra work on top of what you’re already doing.

Lunges

Lunges are great for isolating the muscles in one leg at a time. If you aren’t working one leg at a time, then you are doing a different exercise.

Squats

Squats may be the best exercise to build your hamstrings and glutes. Make sure you have proper form so you are only using your legs and not incorporating your back into the exercise.

Wall-sit

These are great for working your legs. I would say this isn’t as effective as squats but this is a great transition exercise to do to keep the burn in your legs going.
