I’m always sharing tidbits of my workouts on snapchat (username alexisroch) or Instagram. Quick & Easy home workouts that actually work are by far my favorite because you can do it every day without running out of time.
Before we talk about these workouts, I want to mention something I have to be super careful about is the impact on my joints since I have RA. Especially my elbows and knees. It is bummer sometimes because I would love to do more high impact things. It’s not an option though, so all of these workouts are very gentle on your joints.
This is an extension from last year’s home workout post. Everything today is a 10- 30 minute workout too!
Many of these are free on youtube, a few are DVDs I bought from Amazon!
Since I will continue to update this post periodically with all the videos I am testing, be sure to save this to reference!
10 Minute Pilates DVD
I have tested many 10 minute Pilates videos, and these are by far the best. First, I must say using a band is a game changer for anyone workout because it really targets those deep muscles you don’t normally get to. Plus, you will always see quicker results.
Below are the videos I have tried, and they work the best!
Although this looks like a similar DVD to the one above, it is a totally different type of movement. I love how different it is!
My favorite part about this DVD is the little mini ball it comes with. It really intensifies the workout, but you don’t even realize it. The ball mimics the type of things you do in a Pilates studio, which is amazing. This DVD has a 20 minute workout along with a 30 minute one.
I have literally had this DVD for 10 years. It was one of the first Pilates workouts I tried. It is about 30 minutes long, but I saw results from this after a few workouts. It works the entire body which I love!
Tracy Anderson’s 8 Minute Arms
I love all of her workouts because they are quick and easy. You usually don’t even need equipment which I love! I have been doing this arm workout for years, and I can do it pretty well even with rheumatoid arthritis in my elbows.
Tracy Anderson also has a line of workout DVDs that are really fast and effective.
Most of them are around 10 minutes and they give you a great toning workout. Below are the best ones to try.
10 Minute Fat Blasting Circuit
This is another one I have been doing for years. It is so fast and easy! I will put it on my phone and do it anytime I need a quick workout.
Here are some other amazing home workout equipment options that are portable, and I LOVE to use!
In addition to walking almost everyday, I try to incorporate strength training every couple of days at least. Keep this post to reference because I will continue to update with my favorite workout equipment, DVDs, and videos that I test out!
