If you want to try out strength training at home, these are the workouts that I would recommend starting with. 

1. Strength training without equipment

You can work on getting your muscles stronger with and without equipment. For some of you it might be easier to start without any equipment. And that is fine! Get used to a regular schedule first, because using weights or not.. The most important thing you need to do when it comes to working out, is to do it consistently.

You will always need an exercise mat or soft surface though, just to be comfortable. 

2. Working out with dumbells

Although strength training without equipment will also help you achieve your goals, using resistance such as dumbells, might get you there faster. If you are just starting out, start by following along with workouts, using a weight that is not too heavy. If you’re doing well, you can always go up in weight as you go along. My recommendation: start with 2KG-3,5KG and have a 5KG set nearby.

30 minute no-equipment strength workout by Popsugar Fitness 
For this workout you will need 1 set of dumbells (light to medium), an exercise mat and some water. 

Technically this is not a beginner workout, but I love it because of the trainer Charlee Atkins. She is AMAZING and her cues will help you though it. Don’t overdo it though, if you can’t finish a set just yet, just take a break and get back into it with the next exercise. Listen carefully to all the cues and watch the trainer on the left for more modifications.
