Niharika Sodhi tells us why a home workout wins in the battle of home workouts vs gym.

If you are lazy, nothing beats working out at home. You just have to move about within your own space, and it costs you nothing. There’s no excuse of ‘who’ll go so far’ because your gym is your living room, or your own bedroom. Read on, to discover some of my favourite reasons for choosing a home workout.

#1 You can wear comfortable attire

You can just workout in your boxers and a night suit t-shirt.  No more matching clothes and fussing over what to wear, just wear shoes straight out of bed and you’re set.

#2 You are more productive

You are actually working out ALL the time. Unlike the gym, there’s no waiting for machines, finding dumbbells, or looking for a spot or a bench. You’re on the go throughout, burning calories, and making the most of your time.

#3 There is zero time waste

Most of us are super busy with college or jobs, so pat yourself on the back, if you are able to squeeze in an exercise session. Really, home workouts are your answer, since they save so much time and the effort of a commute to the gym. You don’t need to workout more than 30-60 minutes roughly. This saves you 1 or 2 hours daily!

#4 You can introduce variety

From yoga to HIIT to weights, you can do anything you want in your own space, at your own speed. For the most part, classes cost a lot, and may even be competitive. By taking the home route, you get to avoid the extra effort, and do a workout of your choice, without expending energy and finance.

#5 Your workout is NOT monotonous

Let’s face it, a large part of any gym workout is monotonous. So, getting out of that predictable cardio, weight routine can only be a relief. When you workout at home, you can change your routine every day if you like. Unless you are following a structured program, you can choose a different workout from YouTube every day.

#6 You get in some body weight training

Aside from getting some cardiovascular exercise done, you can also build lean muscle at home. Notably, you can go for some body weight training, such as planks, push-up jacks, sit-ups, and so on. Soon, you will see the results, since body weight training is the ideal way to build strength.

Note : The above is for general fitness, but if you are looking to build muscles, then you will need to lift weights.
