* Get fit at home with these simple-to-use exercise routines
* Workouts in under 30 minutes
* It’s time to get lean and mean
By now you’ve seen ads on TV or on the web for P90X, you know, the workout routine that promises to get you ripped in 90 days. By offering varied HIIT workouts and a structured meal plan, folks who have used the system have seen positive results. But it’s not the only one that can get you looking and feeling better in 90 days.
While these programs promise to help you lose fat and build muscle, the amount of work and effort you put in is just as important. In other words, there are no shortcuts, just hard work.
Divided into 14 “intense” workouts targeting specific body parts, RIPT90 ships with nutrition guides, easy-to-make recipe suggestions and all the motivation one can glean from a 90 day training calendar from personal trainer Jody Hendrix. You’ll need sets of dumbbells, bands and a pull-up bar at home to get the most out of RIPT90.
2. TapouT XT
With workouts inspired by mixed martial arts and notable MMA fighters as instructors, you’ll be sweating to 12 different programs that target specific body parts. Also included in the TapouT XT package are resistance bands, a 90-day training calendar, nutrition guide and closed loop leg training band.
3. Jillian Michaels BODYSHRED
You’ve seen her on The Biggest Loser, maybe you follow her on social media, or you’ve downloaded her app, but have you worked out with Jillian Michaels yet? With BODYSHRED, you’ll work out with Jillian for 60 days with each of the ten workouts she prescribes lasting only 30 minutes. You’ll even get a 60-day meal plan to go along with the training guide and calendar.
4. Focus T25
T25 is a bit different than the others in that each of the 11 workouts only lasts 25 minutes, so if you’re short on time, this might be the one for you. The kit includes 9 DVDs, a quick-start guide, nutrition plan, workout calendars, B-LINES resistance band (15 lb.), as well as a 5-day fast track guide.
Could THERACK be the one piece of exercise equipment to rule them all? Maybe. It sort of looks like an old man walker, but you can perform 19 different exercises using THERACK (think dips, push-ups and presses) and you can even add up to 40 lbs. of weight plates for increased pain and gain.
6. Georges St-Pierre’s RUSHFIT
Georges St-Pierre is something of an MMA legend and this is how he describes his RUSHFIT program: “After eight weeks with this program, you may not want to fight me…but you’ll look like you could.” While that may or may not be true depending on your current fitness level, RUSHFIT does come with a 60-day satisfaction guarantee, along with all the other amenities included in our other picks. You will, however, need a set or two of dumbbells.
