Here’s A Basic Workout To Get You Started

One of the most confusing things to do wihen starting to workout (again) is knowing what to do.  Sometimes, it's intimidating to go to the gym.  On top of that, once you get over the intimidation, then you need to figure out something to do.  Then, once you get to that point, it's a bit overwhelming to start lifting weights in front of all those people.
 
BUT, I have a solution for you!  Something that can be done in the comfort of your own home AND you don't need any weights to do it!
 
So, without going on and on about it, I'll get right to it.  It's squats and it's push-ups.  By squats I mean just your natural body weight squats.  Some people call them deep knee bends. But whatever you prefer to call them.

To Many Option In The Fitness World?

You know, it seems like every time we turn on the TV, there are all kinds of gagets and gizmos saying how you can get 6 packs abs in 2 minutes a day, or ride this machine for 10 minutes and you'll be as fit as ever, or if you ben this way during an exercise it will work these muscles, bla-bla-bla.

Most people can relate to the "I bought this thing and now I use it to hang clothes" thing when it comes to these gagets, yes? 

If you're anything like me, I'm not looking for the latest and greatest, I'm just wanting something that I enjoy doing and I can see results!

Seriously, You Don’t Need A Gym Membership To Get Fit

If you spent any time at all in the fitness world, you've heard someone say, "I need to get a gym membership so I can get in shape."

I'm here to tell you that you DO NOT need to join a gym to get in shape!  Now please, before all you gym rats get your panties in a bunch and think I'm telling people NOT to go to a gym, that's not what I am not saying!

What I'm saying is, a gym is not the be-all-that-ends-all way to get in shape.  There are several other options.  Of course, there's always the running, biking, swimming thing, which I encourage anyone to try.  But then there is also the home workout option.

I can hear it now, "But Andrew, I don't have all the equipment that a gym has, I can't possibly to the things at home that I can do at a gym."

Top Fitness Strategies

To that I say, you're probably right, but who says you need to use all that fancy-dancy equipment to get into shape?   I can give you example after example after example of people who NEVER touch a weight and they have a rockin' body (both women and men).

How do they do it?  It's actually quite simple.  It's going back to basics, using equipment you already have and which nature provides as well.

Sure, it's not glamorous, it's not "sexy", heck, in some circles it may not be cool, but believe me, it gets the job done!
