If you’re looking for an effective fitness program that will allow you to workout at home with no weights, there are two different programs that I would recommend. The P90X workout by Tony Horton, and the Insanity workout by Shaun T.
P90X is a 90 day program that combines elements of plyometrics, resistance training, cardio, and kenpo karate with a training method known as “Muscle Confusion“. By constantly introducing new moves and routines into the P90X workouts, your body avoids plateaus and results are greatly accelerated.
While there are no weights required with P90X, you can use dumbbells instead of the resistance bands if you prefer. The only other necessary piece of gear is a pull-up bar (or some other way to do chin-ups in your house).
There are 2 different P90X packages available:
The Insanity workout by Shaun T. is a 60 day, total-body conditioning program that uses no equipment whatsoever. These 10 workout DVD’s feature some pretty insane plyometric workouts along with nonstop intervals of resistance, strength, power, and ab and core training moves.
While you do need a few basic essentials such as the resistance bands and a pull-up bar to do P90X, the only thing you need for Insanity is a DVD player and the videos.
There are 3 different Insanity packages available:
Each of these programs provides an excellent way to workout at home with no weights, and each takes a slightly different approach. Now the only thing you need to do is decide which program best suits your fitness goals and take action!
