An Indoor Workout for Rainy Days

 

Rainy Mondays are the worst but don’t let the weather derail your workout. There are a couple of quick and easy exercises that anyone can do indoors with no equipment that will give you a great workout.
1) STAIR RUNS. Running up and down on steps is a great workout for your heart and legs. Do a 30-60 second drill or go all the way up and down if you feel safe on the stairs.
2) ALTERNATING FORWARD LUNGES.  Begin with feet hips width apart and lunge forward alternating legs. To engage core and balance hld arms overhead by your ears. Do 10 reps each side.
3) PUSH-UP TO SIDE PLANK. Alternated between push-ups and side planks. 10 push-ups and 10 side planks total.
4) REVERSE CRUNCHES. Hold onto legs of a chair or table and bring legs low to the ground (be sure your lower back is flat on the ground), then lift both legs to the ceiling and try to lift your hips off the floor. Repeat 10 times.
5) TRICEP DIPS. Use a stair step or chair to dip body down as you bend your arms from a straight position. Keep your shoulders positioned above your wrists when your arms are straight to avoid injury. Repeat 10 times.
6) RUNNING HIGH KNEES. Run in place lifting your knees to your chest. Do a 30-60 second drill.
7) CHAIR SQUATS. Sit on the edge of a chair with your feet positioned right under your knees. Push through your heels to come to a standing position and then lower slowly back onto the chair. Do 10 reps.
REPEAT THE CIRCUIT 3 TIMES. ADD BURPEES, CRUNCHES AND/OR BEARCRAWLS IF YOU LIKE HIGHER INTENSITY.
