Tired of the same old fitness routine? Need a trainer but can’t afford one? Want to work out when YOU want to work out? Don’t feel you have enough space to get in a good workout? Too hot to go outside? Got rained out? Don’t think you can get in a good workout because you have NO gym equipment?
These are just a short list of reasons (excuses) I hear regularly. Stop it. They really are just excuses. There is such a simple solution to all of this….do like the do in CrossFit and make your very own DIY WOD (Do it yourself, workout of the day).
Pick and exercise from the list below. Pick a number. Do the exercise that many times (or for a certain length of time) and then pick another. After you have completed them start over again. Do it for the length of time you decide upon. If you have a set of weights, an elastic tube, a ball, a couple of cans of food, even…you have like a whole gym!
Stretch when you are done and your workout is complete.
Push-ups (everyone can do a push-up, just find the modification that works for you.
Squats (no, you don’t need weights).
Burpees (look them up if you aren’t sure how to do them).
Lunges (in place or walking).
Crunches. Even better full sit-ups.
Running in place.
Dips between 2 chairs.
Imaginary jump roping.
Some kicking and punching combos
Jumping over a rolled up little hand towel (back and forth)
And here’s one already configured for you:
The sky is the limit…your imagination and dedication is everything.
I would keep going but I am off for my first session of the day. Remember while there is NO 11:30 class today, I WILL be at the gym tonight for 6 and 7 o’clock classes. The kids are back in school. Time to take care of YOU!
