It seems hurricane Sandy has us all working from home, which many of us can easily do thanks to modern technology. But how about working out at home? For a lot people this proves to be quite a challenge. Many people tend not to like workout videos and most don’t have devices like treadmills or weight machines.
To make it simple I’ve provided a workout you can do at home pretty easily. It’s not complicated and it’s short, so no excuses!!
- Walking /running stairs, I suggest putting the theme from Rocky on your playlist for this one. 🙂 This is a great way to get some good cardio in! 10 minutes of walking burns about 100 calories while running burns about 190 cals. If you don’t have stairs, jump rope is a great alternative. According to Mayo clinic, jump rope is one of the most effective cardiovascular exercises you can do, burning approximately 120 calories in 10 mins.
- Push ups, this is the best full body workout you can do. This works your chest, triceps, biceps and core.
- Tricep dips. This is the exercise Madonna does (well, one of the many) that keep her arms looking so amazing.
The Routine: Run /Walk Stairs or jump rope for 5 mins, followed by 20 push-ups and 20 tricep dips. Repeat 4 times.
