3 Tips For Developing Muscles At Home


If you want to try something new or if you are a complete beginner in terms of working out or fitness, in general, you have come to the right place. Many people want to get in shape or pack on some muscles but they can’t or do not want to join a gym. Maybe it is too expensive to pay the monthly fees or it’s too far away or maybe there is just not enough time left to visit a gym. But don’t worry… you can have a very good and well-rounded muscle building workout at home too. But how do you start and what is necessary? Nothing but your own body.


Simple, right? Your body is the best training equipment you can possibly get. It is always there, it doesn’t want any payment from you and the best thing is you can work out WHENEVER and WHEREVER you want.When you hear bodyweight exercises to Develop Muscles At Home then you are probably thinking of old and traditional push-ups, squats and sit-ups but let me tell you something: These traditional exercises are still the best you can do as a beginner and when you feel that they are getting too easy, which happens rather quickly, then just switch to another variation. Chose a pushup, squat or sit up variation that you can perform for 8-15 reps for 3 sets without losing proper form.Now I will give you 3 tips on how to do that.1.Push Ups: There are many many different kinds of push-ups out there but I will focus on 3 different variations that works very well.


Aside from normal pushups, the first variation would be elevated feet pushups. Just take car or anything that will elevate your feets and perform your usual push-ups and you will immediately feel how much more difficult these are. Next one is close handed push ups: put your hand close to each other, almost touching and you will feel more pressure on your triceps. And the last one: Hand shoulder width apart but place them near your hips and you will feel more pressure in your shoulder and chest muscles.2.Squats and Sit Ups: For squats I recommend the same as above….


use something that elevates one foot and as you perform your squats focus on the leg that is elevated and you will feel how much more pressure it exerts on the leg. For sit ups, I suggest you lay flat on your back and raise your legs and simultaneously raise both of your arms and your body and reach for your feet. You can do both feet to both hands or left arm to a `right foot or right arm to left foot. These are very effective.3.This is probably the most important tip I can give you. PROPER FORM. No matter what kind of exercise you do, perform them slowly and controlled.
