How To Build Muscle At Home: The BEST Full Body Home Workout For Growth – Jeremy Ethier
“In today’s video we’ll go through a science-based full body home workout routine. When we think of a home workout, we assume that they’re inferior for muscle growth. For many bodyweight workout at home routines out there, this is true. But, this is simply because they aren’t designed properly. You can make comparable gains in muscle mass by using either lighter loads (like bodyweight exercises), or heavier weights in the gym. But there are a couple key points that people overlook when it comes to home full body workout routines.
First off, is that you need to push to near failure for every single set you perform in this full body home workout routine. If you stop well short of failure during your sets then you’ll fail to fully activate all the motor units within your muscles. And you won’t experience the same amount of growth that you would when using heavy weights. Secondly, you need to be working with a weight or resistance that is at least 30-40% of your 1 rep max if you want to maximize growth. So 30-40% of your 1 rep max equates to around 30-40 reps per set. So, make sure you can’t do more than that for the following exercises.
All that said, we’re now ready to dive into the full home workout. The first exercise we’ll use here are narrow grip push-ups with the hands placed in a diamond shape, which will be used to target the chest and triceps. Next, we’ll use the inverted row to target our overall back with most of the emphasis on the mid back for thickness. Then, the third exercise is pike push-ups, which mainly target the shoulders and triceps. Now, it’s time to target the back, primarily the lats, with a vertical pulling angle through the sliding lat pulldowns.
The fifth of the bodyweight exercises is the bicep towel curls, which allows for arms isolation. Then, to target the long head of the triceps, you can simply switch over and perform tricep extensions in your setup for the bicep curls. For most of us, bodyweight squats just aren’t going to cut it. Which is why we’ll use the towel set up again to perform assisted pistol squats to target the quads and glutes. For the eighth exercise, we’ll move onto the Bulgarian split squat with your rear leg elevated on a platform, which will again further target the quads and glutes. Lastly, we’ll use the sliding leg curl to work the hamstrings through both hip and knee extension.
Now, as for your home workout routine, just like your exercises in the gym, it’s vital that you get adequate rest of roughly 2 minutes between each of your sets. And to do so in this workout while saving time, you can perform the following upper body exercises in a superset fashion:
Home Workout (superset):
Diamond Push-Ups: (4 sets – 2 flat, 2 decline)
Inverted row (4 sets)
Pike Push-ups (3 sets)
Lat pulldowns on floor (3 sets)
Biceps towel curl: 2 sets
Tricep bodyweight extensions: 2 sets
Assisted pistol squat: 3 sets each side
Bulgarian split squat 3 sets each side
Hamstring leg curls: 4 sets
I’d recommend performing this full body home workout 3-4 times a week.”

The PERFECT Home Workout (Sets and Reps Included) – Athlean-X
Home workouts can be a lifesaver, especially in times when you cannot get to the gym. In this video, I’m going to give you a complete home workout routine with all sets and reps included to help you to build muscle regardless of whether or not you ever step foot in a gym. The key to the effectiveness of this perfect home workout is that it pairs exercises together in a way that allows you to train to greater overload than would be possible if you stuck with one single exercise, and it will keep the workouts brief at the same time.
This perfect home workout consists of not one but two complete total body workouts. The first, workout A, is to be performed on Monday and Friday of week 1. Workout B is to be performed on Wednesday. In week 2, this is flipped so that A is performed once on Wednesday and B is performed on both Monday and Friday. You can continue to alternate the workouts in this way if you decide to do this for longer.
This workout for home is going to allow you to hit your total body in under one hour.
With this being the goal, the idea is not to try and hit each muscle with too many individual exercises since this could lead to an excessively long workout and potential for doing too much in the given workout. Instead, we select the exercises based on movement patterns that we know we want to hit to accomplish our goal of building muscle everywhere.
These patterns are broken down below and the exercises included in each are shown.
Keep in mind, there are two complete versions of each workout to be sure that the beginners and more advanced trainees can follow this program and get results from it.
Here is how to construct the perfect home total body workout A:
1. SQUAT / ANTERIOR (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)
Alt. Single Leg Box Squats (use low box if advanced / higher box for beginners)
1 1/2 Bottomed Out Squats (to failure)
2. UPPER PUSH (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)
Handstand Pushups OR Power Pushaways
Rotational Pushups OR Knee Rotational Pushups
Cobra Pushups (long head contracted) OR Knee Cobra Pushups
3. HINGE / POSTERIOR (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)
Alt. Single Leg Heel Touch Squats (use “kickstand” if needed)
Alt. Sprinter Lunges
Plyo Sprinter Lunges (jump from higher position if more beginner)
4. UPPER PULL (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)
Pullups OR Seated Pullups
Human Pullovers OR BW Sliding Pulldowns
Inverted Chin Curls
5. ABS (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)
Black Widow Knee Slides
6. CORRECTIVE (1 MINUTE PER EXERCISE / REST-PAUSE IF NEEDED)
Angels and Devils
COMPLETE 1-2 MORE ROUNDS (TOTAL WORKOUT TIME: 35-50 MINUTES)
Here is how to construct the perfect home workout B:
HINGE / POSTERIOR x 3 ROUNDS
Slick Floor Bridge Curl (Single Leg) OR Slick Floor Bridge Curl (Dual Leg)
Long Leg March
High Hip Bucks
LUNGE / ANTERIOR x 3 ROUNDS
Alt. Crossover Step Ups
Alt. Reverse Lunges
Split Squat Jumps
UPPER PUSH x 3 ROUNDS
Variable Wall Pushups OR Knee Decline Pushups to Knee Flat Pushups
Alt. BW Side Lateral Raises (from knees for beginners)
Tricep BW Extensions (long head stretch)
UPPER PULL x 3 ROUNDS
Chin Ups OR Seated Chin Ups
ABS x 2 ROUNDS
Sit-Up Elbow Thrusts
CORRECTIVE x 2 ROUNDS
COMPLETE 1-2 MORE ROUNDS (TOTAL WORKOUT TIME: 35-50 MINUTES)
If you are doing this workout just to try it out, then I would suggest you choose the workout A variation. That said, if you opt to do a more comprehensive total body split workout routine then you will want to either incorporate workouts A and B into a twice a week plan or, even better, alternating A and B on M, W and F each week.
