Each of the recommended routines focus on strength training. The rationale for this is simple: building muscle through strength training helps to boost your metabolism and burn fat. While you should eventually incorporate cardio into your workout, start by getting the basics correct. By seeing and feeling the results early on, you're more likely to keep with the program over the long term. 

In this beginner's workout plan, focus on the large muscles that provide you with stability and core strength. You won’t need any special equipment. You can do the exercises together in one workout session or split them up throughout the day.

Aim to perform two to three sets involving 10 to 12 repetitions (reps) of each exercise. If you can only do four or six to start, that's okay. The aim is to perform an exercise so that you are slightly shaky by the final rep. Every week thereafter, aim to increase the reps until you are finally able to do three sets of 12.

Beginner's Home Workout

Here are the four exercises to launch your home workout program:

Lunges: Start by doing a set of simple back lunges which help build your buttocks and thighs. Use a wall or chair for balance if needed. When you are able to do 10 to 12 lunges on each leg without support, try the front lunge or another variation.
Squats: The squat works the major muscles in your lower body and helps to shape firm buttocks and thighs. Always perform a squat with your feet hip distance apart. Your hips should sink behind you as if you are sitting in a chair. 
Planks: A plank exercise strengthens the abdominal muscles and those that support your back. Begin by holding the plank position for 15 seconds. As you get stronger, progress to 30 seconds and eventually 90 seconds.
