Many fitness coaches in the health and wellness field use their Instagram as a way to share workouts, exercises for a particular goal, and even their own journey to a healthy lifestyle.
Many times, you can find an influencer’s entire workout routine and ideas on their Instagram pages for inspiration to add to your own workouts.
1. 5 DAY WORKOUT SPLIT
Workout Level: Beginner-Advanced
Alessandra Scutnik (@AlessandraScutnik) is a certified fitness trainer and Balance Athletica Leader. She shares workout routines, fitness tips, nutrition advice, and encouragement through her Instagram feed. Her most recent routine includes a five-day split: two upper-body days, two lower-body days, and one day for a full-body routine. Recently, she shared a video of six movements included in her lower body day, which can apply to any skill level. This routine touches on each muscle group in the lower body, including quads, glutes, and hamstrings. “This workout with six movements can be as easy or as hard as you make it,” says Alessandra. Each of the movements can be made harder by adding more weight, sets, or reps! Alessandra encourages her followers to push themselves to see what they are capable of! Her lower body day routine is as follows:
Weighted Barbell Squats
Dumbbell Romanian Dead Lifts with a Pulse
Banded Hip Thrusts with Barbell
Dumbbell Frog Pumps
Dumbbell Sumo Squats
2. TOTAL BODY CABLE-ONLY WORKOUT
Workout Level: Beginner-Intermediate
Tayler Jordan (@TaylerJordanFit) is a transformation coach and founder of a fitness and well-being program called the B3 Mentorship Program. Tayler shares healthy meals, positive mindset tips, and fitness routines on her Instagram page. In a recent post, she described her love for total body workouts that uses either a cable machine or no equipment at all. This is a very efficient way to crush your workout while hitting all of your muscle groups. As Tayler puts it, these total body routines are a simple way to “get the job done”! She does five rounds of the following workout with a 60-second rest in between.

His Instagram feed features ways to maintain lean muscle mass, including “simple but savage” HIIT routines that are great finishers for the end of your workout or amazing ways to fit in some exercise if you’re on a time crunch. He completed the following exercise on a day when he only had 15 minutes free to complete it. The routine is timed, and each minute the workout changes.

5. HOME WORKOUT ROUTINE

Jasmin Hennessy (@jazz.fitness_) is a fitness coach based in the United Kingdom. She shares a ton of tips throughout her feed, including optimizing your workouts for gaining muscle or tutorials on the safe and correct way to execute many of the most common exercises used in weight lifting. However, like many of us in 2020, she has been completing some home workouts while gyms have been closed. Her most recent home workout routine includes replacements for her normal gym routine using only a resistance band and a chair. Jasmin says this is “an effective resistance training session even when you don’t have access to weights”! Here are the exercises:
Banded Romanian Deadlift (B-stance)
Banded Single-Leg Lying Hamstring Curl
Seated Banded Hip Abduction
Seated Single-Leg Extension
