Do you ever find yourself using the “it’s too cold outside” excuse to avoid working out during winter? Well if you do then this post is for you! In the winter season, the simple act of stepping out of your house can easily turn into an uncomfortably cold rush to the nearest indoor, heated space.
Well in this post, I share with you 5 total body exercises you can do at home on those days when you just don’t feel like bracing the cold. Without further ado, here they are:-
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Sit back deep into a regular squat and jump up explosively. When you land, get back into the squat position and repeat 15 times. Do 3 sets of this.
2. Inchworms with a push up
Stand with your feet at hip-width , bend forward and touch the floor. Walk your hands forward until you get into plank position and do a push up. Walk your hands back and stand upright again. Try to keep your legs straight throughout the whole move but bend your knees if you have to. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
3. Plank jacks
Begin in plank position but on hands. Ensure that your shoulders are over your wrist and your feet are together. Like the jumping jacks movement, jump your legs out wide and then back together. This is one rep. Do 3 sets of 15 reps.
4. Push ups
Get into plank position but with arms slightly wider apart. Bend your elbows and drop down and come back up again. Repeat 10 times for 3 sets.
Stand straight with feel hip-width apart. Jump on one foot raising the other knee into the air as high as possible, ideally hip-width apart. Your arms should follow the motion as if you are jogging. Do the same on the other leg. (Basically a jog but raising your knees up one at a time). Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
