No weights? No gym? Stuck inside because of a snowstorm? Ladyballer, we've gotcha' covered. Here are our 5 ways to stay fit over winter break without even leaving your house...
1. Get Creative with Furniture Props
You don't need to have a fully equipped gym to be able to conduct a workout inside of your house! It's so easy. Get creative with the props in your kitchen, bedroom or living room and get to work! Here is a fun circuit you can try!
If you have a sturdy chair, stairs, 2 face towels or paper towels (don't worry, you'll clean it) and a heavy suitcase - you're good to go!
*Perform the following exercises 12-15 reps each.
Rest 30 seconds and repeat 2-3x!
2. Bodyweight HIIT
When we are in a pinch, we absolutely love bodyweight workouts. They are quick, efficient and all you need is your body and an iPhone timer. This is a great way to get your heart rate up from sitting on the couch all day during your snow day :)
Set your timer for 10 minutes and complete the circuit as many rounds as you can during that time!
*Perform the following exercises:
3. Speed Work
You don't need equipment or ladders for you to able to work on your speed work! In fact, you can do this in the comfort of your own home.
When we work fast and in confined small spaces, it forces us to be more explosive and adapt to better footwork.
Using a thin towel, or a shirt, or anything that can make a line on the floor...
*Perform the following footwork drills at max intensity for 20 seconds, and then rest for 20 seconds. Perform each 3 times.
4. Unconventional Cardio
Ladyballers, you don't always need a field, track, treadmill or road to get your cardio in! Also, because winter break is time to take it easy...sometimes it's nice not to have to hit the pavement every day! There are so many other unconventional cardio moves that we don't utilize enough...
- Jumping Jacks
- High knees
- Butt kicks
- Mountain Climbers
- Shoulder Taps
- Broad Jumps
- Jump Squats
5. Core work
Core work can be done anywhere inside of the house, too! All you have to do is just drop down and get to work in the middle of your living room! Try this circuit out:
8-Min Ab Blaster (1 minute per move)
Last but not least, you can work on your juggling from the comfort of your own home! This is not only a great way to move your body but it's an excellent way to get touches on the ball.
