Rained Out

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).

Warm Up:

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

Crunches 20

repeat this ab circuit 2-3 times without any rest in between then rest for 30 seconds and move on to the second circuit (below).

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

repeat this circuit 3-4 times with 30 seconds rest after each completed circuit.

The Cool Down:

Standing quad stretch

Hamstring stretch

Piriformis stretch

Calf  stretch
