Goal: To re-inspire your at-home training routine and get the absolute most out of living room training program with minimal equipment.
Equipment: A set of dumbbells and a couch, bench, or autumn (to elevate your hands, feet, and torso.)
Workouts per week: 5 in total. 3 Living Room Strength Workouts + 2 Follow Along DB Club Workout (these classes are included).
Gym Membership Required? No. You can do this entire program in your living room.
Length: Each phase is 6 weeks. There are 4 phases, so the entire program is 24 weeks.
Working out at home is incredibly convenient. But most at-home workout routines are random, disorganized, and generally uninspired. Homebody by Bandana aims to change this.
The first thing you’ll notice in Homebody by Bandana is a training calendar. I find a weekly schedule to be beneficial because it organizes our routine and establishes clear objectives for each training day. Monday is Glute City, Wednesday is Pull & Posterior, and Friday is The Theory of Everything Else. These are the cute names I gave to each workout which are all full-body with a special emphasis. To be honest, this program is based on the at-home routine I originally created for Mel (wifey) during quarantine. Then I had a few friends ask if I could write a living room strength program for them and eventually I developed it into an entire 24 week system.
The best part of Homebody by Bandana is that it is an easy entry point to a systematic, organized approach to strength training. You’ll find each training day broken down into exercise, sets, reps, tempo, and rest period. There is also a video of me demonstrating each exercise so you know exactly what to do.
More than anything, Homebody by Bandana is about establishing quality training habits. You can plug-n-play Dumbbell Club classes into your week (all of which are included) or choose a class or cardio alternative (such as Rumble TV or Peloton). If training 5 days per week seems overwhelming, I’d encourage you to start with the 3 strength days. As with all training, what matters most is consistency. You’ll get much more from training 3 days per week for 6 weeks than you will from training 5 days per week for 1 week.
If you’re looking to re-inspire your at-home routine, get organized, and establish quality training habits that challenge your body week-after-week, you’ve come to the right place.
Here’s our weekly training calendar:
While The Dumbbell Club is obviously superior, feel free to substitute another cardio or MetCon style class (such as Rumble TV or Peloton).
