This Memorial Day weekend the storms kept people indoors so they couldn’t get their workouts in. I have some great workouts that will change your life and help you get results without the gym or outdoors. Jump Rope , Lunges, and Planks are just a few things that will help you. www.moneycrashers.com
1. Jump Rope
My husband recently bought a jump rope, and I couldn’t help but laugh because it reminded me of elementary school. I always thought jump ropes were for little girls, but boy, was I wrong!
About a minute into jumping rope, I was literally out of breath. I only made it a few minutes, and my calves were killing me the next day.
If you want a good cardio workout in a matter of minutes, try a jump rope.
2. Stair Stepping
Stair stepping is a great exercise to do in your home, even if you don’t have a set of stairs available. Find the biggest book you own (or a sturdy chair), put it in front of the TV, and step up and down while watching your favorite show. You may not work up a sweat like you would with a jump rope, but you will be keeping your body active and healthy.
3. The Plank
If you don’t have a lot of time, but you want to build up your core muscles, this is the exercise for you. Get into a push-up position, but instead of bending your arms and moving down towards the floor, hold the position with your arms extended. Start off holding the position for 30 seconds, and add an additional 10 seconds every day. See how long you can go for – it’s definitely not easy! This is one of the most challenging exercises, but it’s also one of the of the best for your core.
