My 4 Favorite Home Workout Programs

1. INSANITY

Insanity is a total body workout that requires no equipment – you only use your body weight. The advantage of bodyweight resistance training is in targeting multiple muscles. This home workout program is based on a fitness method called “max interval training”. Max interval training means that you exercise at a very intense pace for a short period of time (interval) and then follows an interval of rest (lower intensity exercise). The idea is to increase your aerobic fitness level while burning fat. Each training lasts about 45-60 minutes. This workout program requires you to exercise 6 days a week for 60 days.

2. FOCUS T25

Focus T25 is a 25-minute cardio workout program. You may think that 25 minutes of exercising is not enough, however, if you finish this program, you will be in great shape. This workout program is perfect for people who are busy. The amount of equipment for Focus T25 is minimal. You only need a mat and a resistance band (or dumbbells). A chin-up bar is another optional piece of equipment, but it is used only in Gamma phase – available in the deluxe kit. There are 3 phases – Alpha, Beta, Gamma. The Focus T25 program schedule is 10-weeks long and you should exercise 6 days a week.

3. P90X2

P90X2 is not for beginners! This home workout program is designed for people who have already done other home workout programs (P90X, INSANITY or ASYLUM). It requires being in a pretty good shape before you start. The workouts in P90X are 50 – 60 minutes long – 7 days a week. The entire program lasts 3 months and each month has its own phase:

Month 1 – Foundation

The Foundation Phase emphasizes core and balance exercises.

Month 2 – Strength

The Strength Phase is a combination of explosive movements with coordination drills. In each movement, you engage your core muscles and end up burning more calories.

Month 3 – Performance

The Performance Phase is designed to create muscle growth by doing a resistance movement, followed by an explosive movement for the same muscle.
