I often read posts that claim real progress can only be achieved in the gym... that homeworkouts are only a temporary solution, or great if you're a beginner. Some say it can help get you started but it's not ideal for reaching strength and aesthetics goals In The long term.
I can't tell you how much I disagree with this. I've worked out entirely from home for nearly 2 years and one of my most frequently asked questions is... "do you lift?" . The answer every time is NO. I workout out for 28 mins in my home to @kayla_itsines BBG program, with minimal equipment (dumbells, resistance bands and a skipping rope). That's it. For me #workingoutfromhome is NOT a stop gap or just ok for now, it's my Personal private space to push HARD .... I don't feel limited, or held back by my environment. I feel empowered by it. It's taken some real guts to build the discipline to thrive from a home workout schedule and to continue to do it. I'm my own personal experiment... how far can I push myself? , how creative/inventive can I be? How can I prove that fitness and strength (and a body that reflects that) is not reliant on a gym membership. Charles Bronson, got into the best shape is his life from within the 4 walls of his solitary confinement prison cell, without a rule book, without equipment, with only the space he had around him and the determination he felt to Push his body and mind beyond his circumstances.
Achieving your goals from home relies on one fundamental thing. HONESTY. Are you pushing hard enough, are you just going through the motions, could you take more weight, or more reps... sometimes it's the other way round... are the extra reps making you lose your form, is the exercise actually too hard and maybe a modification would actually help engage the right muscles properly? Is the exercise burning? Is the burning just 🔥 or is it burning to the point of failure? Could you have done just 5 more if you really pushed?
The tools to transform your body are within YOU...not within a gym. Look beyond your living room walls, focus on the work and keep setting the barre higher every single time. ❤️ anything is possible 💪🏼
