Sometimes, you’re stuck in a fitness rut and need a new (and fun!) routine to get you moving again. You want your workout to make you feel energized and energetic, it shouldn’t be something you dread or a chore to cross off your to-do list. Improving your training is also key if you’re not showing progress. And when you need inspiration, YouTube is an excellent place to find it. You can search by what interests you the most — like strength training, HIIT, a rejuvenating yoga flow, or a 30-minute full-body tone — then sort by the most popular videos to see how other people are upgrading their routines. We spoke to the experts, who share 10 game-changing workouts to reveal your best body ever. And the best part is, they’re all completely free to watch on YouTube.
Sculpting the body of your dreams takes hard work and perseverance. It’s also important to find the right workout for you; what works for one person may not work for someone else. If you’re ready to get started, read on and dive into these 10 game-changing workouts to reveal your best body ever. And when you’re done, don’t miss the 8 standing exercises that get the belly flab off fast.
First up is this 30 minute full body HIIT session from MadFit (real name: Maddie Lymburner), recommended by The Nutrition Twins, Tammy Lakatos Shames, RD, CDN, CFTAND Lyssie Lakatos, RD, CDN, CFT, who are part of our medical expert committee. This routine doesn’t require any jumps or equipment, so you can do it wherever you are, even when you’re on vacation! That way, you don’t stray from your goals. The video itself is great because Maddie explains exactly how she performs each exercise before moving on to the timed version.
“This is a very effective toning and strengthening video for the whole body,” The Nutrition Twins explain. “In half an hour, you’ll feel like you’ve really challenged yourself. You’ll start working your legs but quickly move to your core and your whole body, and then you’ll come back to your legs and other body parts. It’s perfect if you live in an apartment or house where you don’t want anyone underneath you to hear you—there’s no jumping or bouncing!”
Next, we have an “intense but doable” summer full-body burn challenge from Chloe Ting, who is one of the most popular fitness influencers on YouTube. You don’t need any equipment to perform this workout, and there’s a low-impact variation for each exercise. Prepare for four sets of 29 exercises; 30 to 40 seconds on and five to 30 seconds off. Ting walks you through each exercise as you do it.
“One of the things we really like about this routine is that it challenges and also improves your coordination and balance, even if you don’t realize it while you’re doing the routine,” say the Nutrition Twins. “The title says it all, since this routine is definitely doable. We also like that there’s a high-impact and low-impact version depending on your fitness level.”
If you’re looking for a productive workout to reveal your best body ever, check out this one from Nobadaddiction. This 50-minute HIIT session will really challenge your entire body for a “no-fuss” routine you can easily do at home. You’ll be doing some fast-paced cardio like side-to-elbow knee-to-elbow jumps, quick jacks, knee-to-squat jumps, and burpee variations to get your heart rate up. These moves burn loads of calories and really fire up your muscles for effective tone.
“This routine mixes these HIIT cardio exercises with fast-moving body sculpting and strengthening exercises like standing knee-to-elbow cross, toe-taps with squats, scissor kicks for abs, and high leg raises,” says The Nutrition Twins. “Pacing alone is a great way to work your body to lose fat while also building your muscles. This is for the days you’re feeling motivated and can’t wait to feel the burn!”
This 30-minute HIIT workout with Chris and Edi features an element of cardio that will get your heart rate up and make you sweat.
“If you’re looking to train your legs, then you’ll love to start by working your legs, then move on to pushups, then some cardio and then back to your legs with kneeling to squat jumps,” The Nutrition Twins tell us. “And with each progression, you’ll find yourself working on building muscle strength and endurance with exercise variations that keep things interesting. We also appreciate that some of the movements in this routine, especially in the cardio section, are faster movements than in many of the other videos.”
On days when you’re feeling low on energy or a little, well, “lazy,” this simple seven-minute workout really comes in handy. It’s the best way to do something beneficial for your body and get up and exercise even for just a few minutes, because doing any movement is better than doing nothing at all.
“Vicky calls this a seven minute ‘lazy girl’ workout that requires no skipping and we know some days you want to lift your mood, take care of yourself but just can’t push it, and this video is perfect for giving your body a little boost,” The Nutrition Twins point out. “Even when you just feel like lying down, it’s easy to muster seven minutes for this easy workout that will help sculpt your body and add some toning work.” For a bigger challenge, try doing it twice or combine it with several other short workouts.
This full-body foam rolling routine from Tom Peto Training is a great way to kick-start your workout. Rolling out any muscle stiffness is key to ensuring your workout is as productive as possible. If you’re not sure how to work with a foam roller, this video is a great place to start.
“Before I put any equipment into a client’s hands, I throw them a foam roller,” he says Elena Thompson, CPT, Blink Fitness. “I want to make sure they aren’t experiencing any tension that could limit their range of motion and the overall effectiveness of the exercises I’ve prepared for them, which is why I’d recommend checking out Tom Peto’s 10 Minute Full Body Foam Roll Routine before starting your home workout routine. Tom not only offers some really good moves, but he also explains some really helpful techniques.”
Another great tool to incorporate into your workouts is the resistance band. As Thompson points out, nothing can get in the way of your vibe more than hurting you just when you’re getting into the heat of things. But by preparing and warming up properly, you can reduce your risk of injury.
“[That’s] because I love Sydney Cummings 10-Minute Full-Body Resistance Band Stretch Routine,” Thompson tells us. Grab a band, towel, or any type of band that will aid your stretches, and before you know it, you’re warming up and activating the muscles you hope to strengthen in your regular workouts.
If you’re unable to get off the floor for floor exercise or a core workout, don’t let that stop you from reaching your goals!
“One of my favorite Youtubers when it comes to accessible, research-based and engaging workouts is Redefining Strength,” Thompson says. “This workout takes into consideration people who may not be able to get off the floor due to issues like dizziness, knee injuries, and the like. I also love how this routine can be done at the gym or from the comfort of your home.”
If you’ve ever dreamed of what the pros train or what it would be like to walk in their trainers, this video is a great way to find out. The best part is, you can do these exercises right at home! Dana Linn Bailey’s favorite no-equipment exercises give you the opportunity to intensely work your back, chest, legs, shoulders and arms.
“As you work your way through plyo pushups, just remember that Dana Linn Bailey who is on screen was a school teacher before she got her Ms. Olympia title [in 2013]so who knows where you might find yourself after consistently following her routines,” adds Thompson.
If you’re concerned about getting the results you want in a timely manner when you exercise at home, don’t worry. This is a common concern and it’s always helpful to turn to experts for advice, especially a professional who uses science-based studies to prove his point.
“Let me introduce Jeff Nippard. He is truly one of the most comprehensive Youtubers out there when it comes to science-backed fitness information, tips and techniques,” says Thompson. “For example, in this video, he’s going to explain how from home you can do 1/9th of the training volume needed to build muscle and essentially maintain it.”
