The cold and rain might be upon us, but that doesn’t mean you have to abandon your workouts. Yes, cuddling up on the couch with your Snuggie may sound fantastic, but don’t let yourself turn into a hibernating bear. Here’s a workout you can do in the comfort of your own home (and without any equipment).
Jumping jacks 30 seconds
High knees 30 seconds
butt kicks 30 seconds
After your warm-up do 8 ankle rolls in each direction and then some gentle knee rolls followed by some arm windmills to warm up your shoulders.
The Main Event:
Plank 45-60 seconds
Side plank 30-60 seconds
Reverse crunches 20

Push-ups (modify to knees if necessary) 10-15
Stationary lunges 15/side
Mountain climbers 30 seconds
Squats (hands out in front or behind head) 20
