Full Body Workout For Men At Home

You won’t always get the chance to go to the gym to work out.  Perhaps you’re a stay-at-home dad who’s tasked with keeping watch over the kids or you’re working at home because that’s what your job currently entails.

There may also be no gym near where you live, meaning you can’t work out away from home even if you really wanted to.

Don’t worry. Being at home will not prevent you from being able to complete a full body workout. Having access to all the many examples of useful gym equipment would be nice, but they are simply designed to assist you. It’s still possible for you to get a good workout in without them.

As I detail in the video below, as long as you have an exercise mat and an eager attitude, you can continue to exercise effectively right from the comfort of your own home. 


For this particular workout routine, you’ll only be tasked with completing three exercises. However, you’ll be performing all three as part of an AMRAP. If you’re not familiar with the term “AMRAP,” it simply means “As Many Rounds As Possible.”

To complete this AMRAP routine, you will have to perform the three exercises detailed below on a continuous loop for five minutes.

After you complete 10 reps of the first exercise, you will have to complete 10 reps of the next one, and then 10 reps of the third exercise. With all three exercises finished, you will repeat the routine all over again. You are encouraged to get in as many exercises and reps as possible until the five minutes are up.

Without further ado, lay your mat down on the floor, set your timer to five minutes, and let’s get started. 


  • Grizzly Bear Push-Ups
  • Kamikazes
  • Scissor Abs

Grizzly Bear Push-Ups

Grizzly bear push-ups are very similar to the more conventional ones, except they ask you to move your arms more.

To get started, assume the push-up position, but instead of extending your legs, bend your knees so that they are directly positioned underneath your hips. Your toes should also be pointed as they make contact with the mat and your back must be straightened out.

Proceed to dip your upper body down and tuck your elbows in as you do so. Push your body up and then tap your shoulders with each hand.

You can consider a grizzly bear push-up completed when you’ve lifted your body off the ground and tapped your shoulders twice. 


Kamikazes are going to do a number on your legs, so be adequately prepared.

Begin by going into the squat position – posterior sticking out, and knees aligned with the hips.

From the squatting position, leap up slightly and assume the lunging position where your left leg is stepping forward and your right knee is parallel to the ground behind your hips. Leap up slightly again and assume the lunging position for your other leg.

A kamikaze rep is completed when you’ve finished the second lunge. 

Scissor Abs

Last up are the scissor abs, and for this exercise, you need to lie down on the mat.

Don’t lie completely down on the mat. Instead, have your neck slightly raised and bend your knees a bit.

Move your right hand under your neck and use your left hand to touch your right foot. Place your left hand under your neck next and use your right hand to touch your left foot.

While switching hands, remember not to lie down on completely flat on the mat. By avoiding going completely flat, you are keeping your abs engaged throughout the exercise.

A single scissor ab rep is completed when you’ve touched both feet.


The gym is not essential to a good workout. Even though the gym is a better environment for exercising, you can stay in shape by just working out at home.

Perform the exercises detailed above regularly and you should be able to remain in peak physical condition even if your home is your headquarters for working out.
