  1. I have tried some of these before but did not continue. Laziness gets in the way so I have to really discipline myself to do it regularly.

  2. I’m thankful that I found this article ! I’m planning to start a workout since I am starting to gain weight and I really don’t like it. I’m gonna start tomorrow!

  3. Sculpt a better butt and working with abs, I wanna try these two. I hope these can help me to achieve my goal. Thank you for this article.

  4. This is very helpful for those who have been wanting to get fit but doesn’t know where to start.Thank you for providing images and step by step routine workout.

    1. Hi Kevin, it has many benefits. They are: Improves balance and stability in the legs, On a metaphysical level, helps one to achieve balance in other aspects of life, Strengthens the ligaments and tendon of the feet, Strengthens and tones the entire standing leg, up to the buttocks. There’s more but I think you get the idea. Thanks for joining in, Robert

  5. I have a workout regime that I just started. I do 2-3 sessions of HIIT workouts and cardio every other day. Well, in truth the “cardio every other day” isnt really followed all the time. I would out yes, but I have to admit I am lazy especially with consistency.

    If you do suddenly decided you wanted to workout, make sure you egress your way into it. Don’t try and do the hard and heavy lifting in the first time. Let your body adjust to the level of difficulty because in the long run, your body would crave for it.

  6. Being a stay-at-home mom with 2 young kids doesn’t allow me to visit the fitness center anymore. With these routines, I can definitely stay in shape without leaving the house. Thanks!

  7. These give me new ideas to modify my workout at home. I look forward to more recommendations in the future!

  8. Wow, a great article and well explained step by step exercises. I have been struggling with trying to reduce my tummy, after staying for some time without exercising, due to tight work schedule. I was planning to going back to work out routine, and in fact I have found some techniques I could use. Kudos..

  9. Your fitness workouts are easy to do for any level. I don’t think I will have to consult any doctor to try them at home. I think they are all great.

  10. I’ve been looking for a great routine that I could work on. You just gave me a great idea. I should start now. Thanks

  11. Finally workouts that can help me! I’ve been stuck with my diet these past few days and thank god I found this article. Truly a lifesaver! Again, thank you for this!

  12. The first thing, you have to do before starting a workout or exercise routine is to consult your doctor/physicians, just like the advice on the opening article. let’s accept the fact that not all the routines of the exercises are catered for everybody. You have to identify your goal or target, are you going to be a muscle builder,? a cardio base ?or inner core enthusiast. Its very important you create your first base and second base then initiate your workout plan.
