6 unique workouts to do when you’re stuck at home with no equipment

The WeStrive Team reached out to six of our amazing certified trainers and asked each of them to provide at-home workouts that don’t require equipment. Make sure you warm-up properly before each workout and enjoy!

In Texas we had a pretty bad snow storm this week. I realized, just like with COVID, how many people were at home with no power & no workout equipment. This made me realize that we definitely need to have more at-home/equipment-free workouts available here on our blog.

The WeStrive Team reached out to six of our amazing certified trainers (that all train on WeStrive) and asked each of them to provide at-home workouts that don’t require equipment. Each exercise comes with a video link. If you train with your trainer on the WeStrive App, the photos & videos will come along with each program they send you.

Make sure you warm-up properly before each workout and enjoy!

Here are the six certified personal trainers that provided these amazing workouts! If you want custom programs made by them - just for you - on the WeStrive App, then send them a DM over their Instagram profiles (links attached to their names).

Michael Atunrase

Carly Maxwell

Amanda Kay

Cory Becker

Maureen Wells

Amy Zarzo

Now, without further adieu (I had to Google how to spell that & wow was I totally wrong!), here is the first workout you can do at home with absolutely nothing but your own bodyweight!

1) Michael Atunrase Program

Warm-up Circuit

Superset 1 (3 Sets - 60 sec rest between each set)

Superset 2 (3 Sets - 60 sec rest between each set)

Finisher (3 rounds - 60 sec rest between each circuit)

2) Carly Maxwell Program

3 Rounds for each Circuit. Work for 30 seconds then rest 15 seconds between exercises. Just keep going through the circuit. For example, you might do 1 Plank jack, 2 deadbugs, 3 bicycle crunches per side, 1 plank jacks, and then just 1 deadbugs within the 30 seconds.

Rest 1 minute after each round and between circuits.

Circuit 1

Circuit 2

Circuit 3

3) Amanda Kay Program

Have a timer going like the Interval Timer App!

Warm-up: 2-3 Rounds. Perform 15-20 seconds of each warm-up exercise

WORK:

Superset exercise A with exercise B without rest between. Then rest 45sec-1min between sets. Do 2-3 sets for each of the following:

Cooldown:

30-45sec hold for each

4) Cory Becker Program

Any exercise  can be swapped out if the person can’t perform.

This is a 10 x 10 pyramid with 30 seconds of work and rest intervals, starting with one exercise and working to 10 exercises, 30 seconds each straight through.

Exercises in numbered order:

  1. Bodyweight Squat
  2. Burpee
  3. Crunches
  4. Plank
  5. Side lunge alternating
  6. Jumping jacks
  7. Push-ups
  8. Scissor kicks
  9. Lunges
  10. Mountain climbers

You will do 30 seconds of each exercise, adding an exercise after each rest period to look like:

Bodyweight squats for 30 seconds - 30 second rest

Bodyweight squats for 30 seconds, burpees for 30 seconds - 30 sec rest

Bodyweight squats for 30 seconds, burpees for 30 seconds, crunches for 30 seconds - rest

This should be about a 31 min workout.

5) Maureen Wells

3 rounds of each circuit. The first circuit will cover Legs, the second will cover Upper body, and the third circuit will cover your core.

10-15 reps for the first 3 exercises of each set. 30-45 seconds for the last exercise of each set.

Legs:
Upper:
Core:

6) Amy Zarzo Program

This workout should take 15-25 minutes. Do 3-5 sets of this giant circuit. Perform each exercise for 30 seconds, take a 15 second break, and then move to the next exercise.

There you have it! If you have any questions about the programs, feel free and reach out to the trainers through their Instagram profiles or email us at Help@westriveapp.com
