What you know about exercising from home is true: There are more things hindering your workout than helping it. But that doeesn't mean you can't get a quality session in, or that you're stuck slogging through boring treadmill runs in your garage and doing 1,000 situps (which, by the way, is useless; read about it here) on your living room floor.
Adam Von Rothfelder, former professional MMA fighter, owner of CoMo in Milwaukee, and personal trainer, is bringing inspiration and some serious sweat potential to your tired at-home workouts in an effort to turn them into tried-and-true routines you come back to again and again. The following five circuits provide results whether you're looking to lose weight and drop fat, harness explosive power, build strength, hone your flexibility, or ramp up your endurance.
Find the workout that caters to your needs or weaknesses, or mix and match.
You'll need a kettlebell, TRX Suspension Trainer, a pullup bar, plyo boxes, treadmill (or you can hit the streets, local track), and a towel (one for the workout, and another—optional—to mop up your sweat).
