Want a chuckle between your home workout sets? Well breathe deep and lie back on your sofa because we’ve got some memes to make you smile. We all need a laugh to get us through our day, and the best way for that is to look deep into the internet’s darkest corners.

Don’t worry though — we did the digging for you.

Featuring our darkest thoughts to our funniest ones, here’s some relatable home workout memes to brighten your day.


1. "Easy" Home HIIT? Never again.

‘It’s simple and easy,’ they say.

While you’re sweating and shaking like a leaf. If you’re doing any of those old-school fitness DVDs, you definitely know the feeling.


2. It's just so comfy...

If the last one was the expectation, then this is the reality. It’s as if someone actually filmed all of our home workouts (featuring the very same background music we all play in our heads.)


3. You thought you had chicken legs before lockdown...

Are you skipping on legs as well? Then this is the most relatable meme of all.

Maybe we should all write in a leg day diary and post it online daily to keep us all on track.


4. Who wants to be lean for summer anyway?

Out of the two, it’s definitely the preferable option. It’s also one of the many benefits of bulking, so let’s eat big to get big.


5. If only we'd known that would be our last good workout...

There was a moment of realisation for us all when lockdown began. How long until we’ll be allowed back? Who knows. We thought spending all day with our families was bad enough — try living without the gym...


6. "I was thinking of starting tomorrow, or maybe next week..."

We all know someone like this. In fact, this is a true fact about most gym members: researched, studied, and analysed.

While you might be missing it like hell, there’ll be someone out there thinking about starting tomorrow. Maybe...


7. *Opens fridge door for the 70 billionth time*

If only we knew who did it...

Let’s not kid ourselves: snacking is just too tempting when the fridge is in the next room. For most of us, there’s no mystery at all.


8. Throwing scales out the window = good home workout

Then you get a sinking feeling in your stomach when you realise the mistake you’ve made.

We’ve all been there, so don’t worry. Remember you’re surviving a pandemic — weight loss can wait.


9. Pets are just loving lockdown life

Maybe you’ve noticed your cat working out since being at home. Or maybe lockdown’s making you loopy.

Still, this cat will get a six-pack worth dying for if it keeps up with those leg raises. It’s got motivation that everyone should aspire to have though, so well done Titmouse.


10. Mournful levels of motivation

We saved the most relatable to last. This is the feeling all of us have right now.

We. Just. Want. To. Lift. Something. Heavy.

It’s maybe better we all come to terms with the situation, put our home workouts to rest and finally, after grieving, move on.


Take home message

If you’re feeling a certain way about working out at home, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. Hopefully these put a smile on your face because when you learn to laugh at the situation (and realise you’re not alone), you’ll feel a lot better about everything.
