Default Workout Ideas

Alright guys. I'm trying to get rid of this dad body. I used to have a workout shed with weights, benches, jump boxes, tractor tire, the works. Harvey came, and now I don't have any room for anything to workout with. I'm looking for suggestions from the city folk who find time to exercise in their neighborhoods. I HATE just jogging. I don't mind it if its to cap off a good workout, but to just take off jogging will burn me out quick. I'm looking for some good ideas for home workouts because I have a 1 year old and I don't want to spend my time at the gym. I'm just wanting to shed some pounds, but like to get creative in order to keep it interesting and not get bored with it.


Here is my current inventory, which is all stuff my wife and I can both use. I'm not opposed to getting more stuff as long as it doesn't take up too much room. I've even tossed the idea of a Bowflex around a little bit because I have an room that I'm about to convert to a mancave/workout room. I just don't know if I want to take up all the space in the room with workout equipment. I'd rather a recliner and deer heads.


10 lb dumbells
10 and 15 lb kettlebells
15 lb wall ball
Jump rope

I know this might sound silly to some, and many may not have one to climb, but I get a workout climbing an overhead feed bin several times in one day. Though at first I was climbing the bin up to the top hatch to break up some badly clumped feed.

How about setting up some climbing sticks on a tree and climb it several times every day?

you can look up just about any crossfit or HIT website and find a million ideas on what to do on any given day. This is what I do. Beats paying $150 a month for crossfit classes

I have started my working out, which is running and it does get miserable day after day. I have started running stairs on my breaks at work. Watching what I eat and cutting out beer is the biggest down fall for losing some weight. I cut out all cokes, and drink Michelob Ultras but kind of defeats the purpose if you drink 15 in a night. Good luck I am trying to keep on it as well.

Make your own TRX Rings - there are plenty of exercises found on the web, DIY battle ropes ( Check YouTube). DIY tire drag, once again check YouTube.

I dropped 23lbs in the last 6 weeks and getting bored I'm making sandbags tonight after kid is asleep. Never done it but looks like a good work out. Takes up minimal space and can do it in the backyard

I follow the CrossFit.com workout schedule... you can modify most of the daily workouts to fit what you have. Its always different to keep things interesting.

I’d consider factoring in diet change by cutting carbs. Just start cutting your higher consumption carbs or sugars (sweets, high sugar drinks, potatoes, breads) or go hard core ketogenic with low net carbs each day. I’d consider some of the cardio workouts like P90 or insanity. Maybe alternate with your free weights to add diversity. Mix it up. Good luck

Lots of sex. Heart rate is high. Calories are burned and muscle is not lost.

How many 2 minute workouts is his wife gonna let him squeeze in a day?


I really like my kettle bells. Tons of YouTube content and Onnit.com has good workouts with kettle bells. I also have a rower that is in my office that is really good, it folds up quick and takes up minimal space

Take a hard look at your diet.. it all starts there .. the working out comes easy after the pounds start dropping

I had a very similar situation and set up, and only had time to workout at home. Jogging hurts me, especially on concrete, but I like to sprint (a relative term for a 46 yr old).

I've built up to a good mimimal set of workout equipment in my garage and if I could keep only one thing it would be the treadmill. I do interval sprints on that thing and 40 lbs melted off once I started doing that.

I basically incline it somewhat and run at a "sprint" for 60 seconds, then fast-walk for 90 seconds, repeat. My sprints are relative to how I feel that day. Most days I can do level 9 & 10. Some days not so much. The point is for the high entinsity sprint part to be really high intensity.

I typically do 15-20 minutes before every "body weight" type workout, which comes out to only 5 or 6 sprints. On off days I do 30 minutes with a day or two of rest per week. It has been easy to maintain doing that... as long as I don't eat too crazy.

I altered my diet 2 weeks ago and had started to walk/jog, but was wanting to get a little heavier into the working out. I did the workout Easttxhunterr posted yesterday and I'm good and sore today. Good news is that I hadn't weighed myself sense I first started eating better and I've already dropped 3 lbs. Probably just a bunch of water weight from laying off the carbs and sweating a lot more than I'm used to, but its a start! I'll be digging through this post and I'll let ya'll know what works best for me for anyone interested. Tonights workout will be tug of war against speckeled trout, red fish, and flounder if all goes well.... Probably just more of a cast and real workout but atleast i'll be fishin!

and or try the Keto Diet... its a low carb high protein, high fat diet.
It trains your body to use the fuels that it was designed to run on. So, once you are not running on carbs that are being transformed into sugar in your body, your body then re-learns ro run on fat... thus depleting the fat stores and adjusting your metobilism correctly.
There is a TON of great info on all the great benefits out there. When I first heard about it, I though..."yeah right, all that from your diet"... but I see it true!
It helps with loosing weight and promoting lean muscle growth, and many others... here are a couple links to help

a lot of gyms now offer child care. i would spend the $20-30/m and go to the gym. access to all the equipment and you will push yourself harder than doing it at home.
