Since we’re over 2 weeks in our nationwide quarantine, a lot of us have been working out at home, great job by the way!
I am totally aware how difficult it is to have motivation to do any activity at home, but we must remember that staying active is a big part of being healthy and during this time (of COVID-19) we need to do everything we can to keep our immune system strong.
Note: You can easily do these exercises without weights also or better yet, get creative by grabbing something around the house as weights. Maybe a 12pk of beer, case of water, milk jugs, anything with a little weight.
Check out the full video or see a break down of the routine below. Stay healthy and safe during this time friends!
- 25 jumping jacks
- 25 seconds knee highs
- 25 seconds butt kicks
- 25 jumping lunges
- 25 plank jacks
Take about a minute break in between each set, making this warm up a total of 3 sets. This will really get your heart rate up.
LOWER BODY (3 sets):
- 25 squats (with weights)
- 10-15 single leg deadlifts (each leg)
- 10-15 lunges (each leg)
- 25 straight leg dead lifts (with weights)
- 25 air squats
- lastly, burn out with jump rope
Be sure to stretch after this, or what I like to do is 10 minutes of Yoga, just to relax the muscles and control my breathing.
What are you all doing during the quarantine?
