• Top 5 At-Home Exercises To Build Muscle


    If you want to build muscle, then you need to eat a lot of protein, but you also have to work out consistently. Unfortunately not all exercises will build your muscles, which means you need to do the right ones in order to see results. Luckily there are a lot of great at-home exercises you can do that don’t require you to have an expensive gym pass! You can do these workouts right in the comfort of your home so you can get buff, tone your body and see your body change in ways that you’ve been wanting to.

    1. Barrel Chest Workout

    You can do this in any room where you have enough space to lay down on the ground. Start by doing pushups for 10-15 reps. After that, do pullups with your doorframe or any equipment that you have for as many reps as you can. From there, hold a plank for 60 seconds. Once you are done with that, do 10 reps of renegade rows to finish. Repeat this entire workout five times to get the best muscle-building results possible.

    2. Total Body

    Start this workout by doing jump roping for 60 seconds to get your entire body moving. After that, do 10 reps of burpees. Next, do 15 reps of dumbbell curl-to-presses and 50 seconds of a bear crawl. Once you’re done, rest for a couple of minutes and then start all over again. You should repeat this five times so that you do the workout six times total.

    3. Upper Body

    Start with doing 3 sets of three minutes of pushups. After that, do 3 sets of 60 second planks, giving yourself 1 minute in between to rest. Next, do a body weight squat followed by three sets of dumbbell curls. Rest for 90 seconds and then do 5 sets of 5 reps of pullups in your doorframe. Repeat this as many times as you can, increasing the number that you do as you get stronger.

    4. Abs

    If you have an ab-wheel, then start out by rolling this for a few minutes. After that, do the superman hold for 30 seconds, and repeat it for 3 sets of ten reps. After that, do 3 sets of 10 reps of renegade rows. Finish this off with doing 3 sets of a 60 second hold plank. Rest for a couple of minutes and then repeat this four times. You can add in more reps as you get stronger so the sets become more of a challenge.

    5. Leg Workout

    To build muscles in your legs, start by doing a body-weight squat for as long as you can hold. After that, do a lying glute bridge for 100 total reps. Then, do 4 sets of 10 reps of reverse lunges and dumbbell deadlifts. To finish, sit against the wall for as long as you can hold the position comfortably. Repeat this entire workout four or five times, and then add in one addition workout as you get stronger and more comfortable.
