This home workout with weights will take you 25 minutes to complete. It uses the same structure as all the recent quiet, apartment-friendly workouts I’ve been posting recently. All you’ll need is a set of medium weights. If you don’t have equipment at home, you could use water bottles or wine bottles as your weights. 🙂
Home Workout with Weights
This home workout with weights is broken up into three circuits. In each circuit, you’ll do three exercises for 30 seconds each, performing them back to back. Rest for 30 seconds before repeating the circuit.
In each circuit, there’ll be some (or all) exercises that isolate one side, so you’ll alternate right, left, right left. Complete four sets of the circuit in total.
As with all workouts, you want to make sure you’re properly warmed up before, and always listen to your body, modifying or stopping as needed. I have two guided warm ups:
See 1:25 in the above video for a preview of the exercises.
- Deadlift Taps
- Low Curtsy, Back Lunge, Squat
- Side Lunge to Calf Raise Press—you can opt to eliminate the calf raise or do it bodyweight, this one is deceptively challenging for balance
