FREE Home Workout Plan for Women

This Full Body Home Workout Plan for Women Includes:

  • 4 weeks of guided, muscle building home workouts on YouTube (six workouts per week and one-to-two active recovery, stretching or rest days).
  • Minimal equipment – you’ll just need dumbbells and an optional resistance band, kettlebell and foam roller.
  • Daily workouts are, on average, 20-35 minutes a day.

Home Workout Plan Details (here’s what you need):

1. Exercise Equipment Needed:

  • A Set of Dumbbells. Most of the daily workouts require a set of dumbbells. Each weight training workout will have a recommended dumbbell weight, usually between 8-20 pounds. Remember muscle growth happens with lifting heavy weights.

Optional: 

  • A Mini Loop Resistance Band. You can always use an old sports bra if you don’t have a resistance band available. These are the mini loop resistance bands I have (DISCOUNT CODE: NML).
  • A Kettlebell. There’s one workout that uses a kettlebell, but you can substitute a single dumbbell.
  • A Foam Roller. A great way to release sore muscles post workout or to use on active recovery days.

2. Time Requirement: 

Varies from 20-35 minutes a day, 5-6 days per week. You can always take more rest days as needed.

3. Fitness Level:

Intermediate to Advanced, with modifications offered for all fitness levels in the daily workout videos.

4. Cost:

FREE! No sign up needed.

Home Workout Challenge FAQs

1. Can home workouts build muscle and help with weight loss? 

YES! 

Can you “get in shape” in four weeks? That depends on what you’re measuring success by. Building muscle and losing weight takes consistent effort over time, but in four weeks you WILL SEE:

  • Increased strength through resistance training and ability to complete more repetitions lifting weights.
  • Improved muscle stimulus, reaction time, coordination and balance. Performing each compound exercise with better form.
  • BUT the greatest difference you’ll see after completing this 30-day workout program — ELEVATED energy levels and mood!! And desire to come back for more; creating consistent fitness habits at home.

This is the ultimate 4-week home workout plan to help you get fitter and stronger at home.

2. I’m a runner. How do I incorporate running into this full body workout plan?

I suggest completing three of the strength training workouts each week. Choose three full body workouts OR choose: 

  • One Leg Day (lower body)
  • One Arm Day (upper body)
  • One Full Body Training Day

You just want to make sure you are strength training your major muscle groups three times per week.

And then you can add running on the other days. I also like adding a run to arm days if time allows. Or follow our 2-Week Strength Training + Running Workout Plan.

3. How do I adjust this plan for pregnancy/postpartum?

Modifications are noted next to the daily workouts to make this fitness plan accessible for all fitness levels. 

If I don’t recommend the workout for pregnancy, I’ve linked an alternative, pregnancy-friendly workout next to the daily workout above.

  1. I’ve been doing your at home workouts since COVID. They have been so beneficial, motivating and even fun! I feel like I’m not working out alone. The results have been noticeable and I’m just working 3-4 days per week. I’m stronger, more toned and I can actually see muscles!
    You have great variety which helps to keep me coming back.

    • Polly! This message absolutely made my day, thank you so much for sharing! I hope you are proud of all your hard work — love the results you are seeing! Keep up the great work and YES, keep coming back for more!! -Lindsey

  2. I can’t believe you give away an entire months worth of workouts! This is probably very useful during the current state of things. You have some unique and useful moves. I’m not sure which workout is currently playing in the video, but I like how the moves change very quickly. It looks intense with a splash of stability.

  3. Hello,
    I’m wondering which of you 30 day workout plans would you suggest to follow if you are in your second trimester?
    Prior to pregnancy I worked out approx. 5 times a week, with a mix of yoga, cardio and strength training.

    Thanks for the great videos!

  4. Love this so much! Thank yo! I did the video linked above – 30 min pyramid workout today. It was great and a perfect way to start the day. I love your attitude, enthusiasm and teaching style. Enjoy those beautiful babies!

    • Hi Gina! I’m so glad you’re finding this workout calendar helpful. Yes, I too love the Pyramid Workout video linked in this post. I’m so glad you’re loving the workouts — keep up the great work! -Lindsey
