    Struggle

    Since lockdown is back, I started my homework outs again. Using the same workout program as I did in the gym but finding the equivalent in bodyweight exercises & using home objects as well as upping the reps/sets as the weight is like 30KG max in home objects.

    As I am following a increase in 1 rep per week/ 1 set per 2 weeks, because I cant up the weight due to limited home objects. As the sets increase, the workout is become a struggle to finish (currently on 15 reps, 5 sets) & Im getting demotivated. What should I do to make the workout easier but still maintain or gain muscle?

    So I was following the workout The Intermediate Upper/Lower in https://forum.bodybuilding.com/showt...hp?t=162916931... I tried my best to find the bodyweight equivalent (Using a 20KG bag of rice, 10KG Bottle of oil & 5KG flower bag lol), see below:

    Initially I started with 3 sets. (1/2 min rest between sets, 5min rest between exercises)

    One Arm Row 5x10 (20KG)
    Bicep Curl 5x8 (15KG)
    Press Ups 5x10 (20KG)
    Incline Press Ups 5x10 (15KG)
    Bands Reverse Flies 5x12

    Squats 5x15 (35KG)
    Lunges 5x15 (15KG)
    Cloth on floor Hamstring 5x15
    Calf Raises 5x20 (35KG)
    Abs 5x15

    Wednesday: Rest

    One Arm Row 5x15 (20KG)
    OHP 5x12 (20KG)
    Pendlay Rows 5x12 (35KG)

    If it was me I would I would cut it into 3 days full body. I'd get myself a place to do pull ups. (Doorway pull up bar or a power tower or anything to do them on)

    Push ups (progression going from push ups - diamond push ups - decline/leg raised diamond push ups - one armed push ups

    Chin ups / pull ups (just increase reps or add a bit weight)

    Squat progressions ( squats- bulgarian split squats - assisted one leg squats (holding onto something) - one leg squats (holding a little weight infront of you as it's actually easier to do this way for balance) - then one leg squat

    So I'd do that every other day and put all your focus into these exercises if I had limited equipment working out at home
