8 Workouts You Can Do From The Comfort Of Your Home

While we practice social distancing, we are also practicing snatching our waists in the comforts of our own homes.

Wellness

We can't front, not being able to go to the gym decreases our motivation. But thanks to the world wide web and smart televisions, we can set up a gym in our humble abodes. Streaming workouts from home has never been more convenient and more necessary than in these transformative times. Even Auntie Extraordinaire, Debbie Allen hosted a dance class on Instagram to promote movements in our homes.

There are also many benefits to working out at home. From convenience to privacy to availability, you can create a physical workout space that is catered to your needs. Not to mention, you won't have to spend extra coins on a gym membership.

We know that finding videos that have moves you want and an instructor you can relate to is major. That's why we rounded up a list of videos featuring some magical black girls. Scroll through our mini-catalog of workout videos that will put Kanye's Workout Plan to shame!

For a slim waist & booty...

Brittne Babe is a famous fitness instructor and model so we always trust her workouts. In this workout, she focuses on building abs through strength and power with these full body moves. She encourages you to grab a mat and get started! Some exercises include Side Twist Plank and Pushup to Twist Kick.

For a full body workout that allows you to tone & keep your curves...

Simply Shana is all about pushing it. The goal of this video is to tone up so you can keep your curves. Using an empty space in her home, she kept great form while also remembering to breathe. Subscribers say that this workout was tough but completely worth it.

Quarantining with bae? Try this 30 minute HIIT cardio and abs workout before you Netflix and chill. SELF Magazine says, "In this routine, you'll keep moving for a full four minutes through cardio moves like pop squats, scissor steps, and jumping jacks—then finish each round with a 60 second plank."

For a hip-hop dance routine that torches calories...

We love a good dance session because it doesn't feel like a workout. Those quarantine snack calories will meet their match with hip-hop Tabata taught by Keaira LaShae. You don't have to be a professional dancer to do this workout. Keaira believes in passion over perfection.
