The PERFECT Home Workout (Sets and Reps Included)

About This Class

Home workouts can be a lifesaver, especially in times when you cannot get to the gym. In this video, I’m going to give you a complete home workout routine with all sets and reps included to help you to build muscle regardless of whether or not you ever step foot in a gym. The key to the effectiveness of this perfect home workout is that it pairs exercises together in a way that allows you to train to greater overload than would be possible if you stuck with one single exercise, and it will keep the workouts brief at the same time.

This perfect home workout consists of not one but two complete total body workouts. The first, workout A, is to be performed on Monday and Friday of week 1. Workout B is to be performed on Wednesday. In week 2, this is flipped so that A is performed once on Wednesday and B is performed on both Monday and Friday. You can continue to alternate the workouts in this way if you decide to do this for longer.

This workout for home is going to allow you to hit your total body in under one hour.

With this being the goal, the idea is not to try and hit each muscle with too many individual exercises since this could lead to an excessively long workout and potential for doing too much in the given workout. Instead, we select the exercises based on movement patterns that we know we want to hit to accomplish our goal of building muscle everywhere.

These patterns are broken down below and the exercises included in each are shown.

Keep in mind, there are two complete versions of each workout to be sure that the beginners and more advanced trainees can follow this program and get results from it.

Here is how to construct the perfect home total body workout A:

1. SQUAT / ANTERIOR (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)

Alt. Single Leg Box Squats (use low box if advanced / higher box for beginners)
1 1/2 Bottomed Out Squats (to failure)
Jump Squats

2. UPPER PUSH (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)

Handstand Pushups OR Power Pushaways
Rotational Pushups OR Knee Rotational Pushups
Cobra Pushups (long head contracted) OR Knee Cobra Pushups

3. HINGE / POSTERIOR (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)

Alt. Single Leg Heel Touch Squats (use “kickstand” if needed)
Alt. Sprinter Lunges
Plyo Sprinter Lunges (jump from higher position if more beginner)

4. UPPER PULL (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)

Pullups OR Seated Pullups
Human Pullovers OR BW Sliding Pulldowns
Inverted Chin Curls

5. ABS (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)

Reverse Corkscrews
Black Widow Knee Slides
Levitation Crunches

6. CORRECTIVE (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)

Angels and Devils

COMPLETE 1-2 MORE ROUNDS (TOTAL WORKOUT TIME: 35-50 MINUTES)

Here is how to construct the perfect home workout B:

HINGE / POSTERIOR x 3 ROUNDS

Slick Floor Bridge Curl (Single Leg) OR Slick Floor Bridge Curl (Dual Leg)
Long Leg March
High Hip Bucks

LUNGE / ANTERIOR x 3 ROUNDS

Alt. Crossover Step Ups
Alt. Reverse Lunges
Split Squat Jumps

UPPER PUSH x 3 ROUNDS

Variable Wall Pushups OR Knee Decline Pushups to Knee Flat Pushups
Alt. BW Side Lateral Raises (from knees for beginners)
Tricep BW Extensions (long head stretch)

UPPER PULL x 3 ROUNDS

Chin Ups OR Seated Chin Ups
Inverted Rows
Back Widows

ABS x 2 ROUNDS

Ab Halos
V-Up Tucks
Sit-Up Elbow Thrusts

CORRECTIVE x 2 ROUNDS

Reverse Hypers

COMPLETE 1-2 MORE ROUNDS (TOTAL WORKOUT TIME: 35-50 MINUTES)

If you are doing this workout just to try it out, then I would suggest you choose the workout A variation. That said, if you opt to do a more comprehensive total body split workout routine then you will want to either incorporate workouts A and B into a twice a week plan or, even better, alternating A and B on M, W and F each week.

THE ATHLEAN-X CREATOR JEFF CAVALIERE

Jeff Cavaliere MSPT, CSCS served as both the Head Physical Therapist and Assistant Strength Coach for the New York Mets during the National League East Championship 2006, 2007 and 2008 seasons and coached some of the game’s most accomplished players including future hall of fame pitchers Tom Glavine and Pedro Martinez, and perennial all-stars Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Jose Reyes, and Billy Wagner to name just a few. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

TRAINING AND EDUCATION

Jeff received his Masters Degree in Physical Therapy and Bachelor of Science in Physioneurobiology / Premedicine from the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT (one of the top 5 universities in the country in physical therapy and sports medicine). Off the field, Cavaliere is a much sought after author and lecturer, speaking on the topics of baseball injury prevention and sport specific conditioning and has appeared numerous times in print media writing (including many of the top Fitness Magazines) on the topics of sports training, injury rehabilitation and prevention. Consistent with his desire to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of creating the “complete and functional athlete”, Cavaliere also possesses an extensive knowledge of nutrition that he has simplified for the masses and both practices and preaches with outstanding results.

PUTTING THE SCIENCE BACK IN STRENGTH

In the weight room Jeff is known for his unique and cutting edge approaches to functional strength and conditioning and has been called the actual “brains behind the brawn” for putting real muscle science back into training. Cavaliere’s physical therapy background is his greatest asset and what separates him from most all other trainers, as it provides him with the ability to apply his knowledge of bio mechanics, muscle anatomy and function in order to create some of the most effective (and often never before seen) exercise combos and programs around…while prioritizing safety and injury prevention always. His creativity and credentials are second to none in the game. When the goal is reaching peak performance and maximizing all that the body has to offer, Jeff is at the very top of the game.

OUTSIDE THE WEIGHT ROOM WALLS

Outside the gym, Cavaliere is an accomplished author having penned both the Major League Insider Training Manual (a strength and conditioning must for all professional baseball players and aspiring pros alike) and the Teen Sports Nutrition Blueprint (an insightful look at the worrying state of youth nutrition and childhood obesity…and more importantly…solutions to change this!)

Amongst his peers, Jeff is recognized as a respected authority who never lets ego stand in the way of education and continued learning which helps him to stay on the cutting edge of his field of expertise.

ATHLEAN IN EVERYONE

Cavaliere realizes that not everyone that steps into a gym has athletic aspirations, but finds that there isn’t a guy around that wouldn’t want to have a ripped, athletic body. Taking the exact methods and techniques used to forge some of the greatest, most explosive and strongest physiques in pro sports and now applying it to you…Jeff has now made it possible for everyone to look like athletes with his complete ATHLEAN-X Training System. If you want to unleash your inner athlete, build sculpted muscle head to toe, and finally get that shredded core…then it’s time to join the rest of TEAM ATHLEAN and get started today.
