I think I saw one very common thing going around yesterday on twitter – very very cold weather! Another thing that was pretty consistent across the board was people skipping their run or even trip to the gym to complete an at home workout. Lucky for you, I have a pretty awesome at home circuit today for Workout Wednesday!
Rather than having the standard 2-3 sets of 10-15 reps, this workout is completely based around what you can do. After completing the walk/run on the treadmill, advance to the next workout – in this case, the split leg squat. Do each leg until you literally can do no more, then move to the pushups. For some of us, this may be only 10-15 reps. For others it may be 45-60 reps. Do whatever your body tells you, but work incredibly hard! This is a full body, intense workout, and should take you no more than 35-40 minutes, including the warm up and cool down at the end.
Most of the exercises should be pretty easy to recognize, but I think the knee to elbow could use some explanation, so be sure to check out the video below if you are curious.
If you do not have a treadmill or elliptical at your disposal, warm up by doing 5 or so minutes of jumping jacks to get the blood flowing and your heart pumping. Working out with cold muscles is never advised!
I hope you are all staying warm and can still get your sweat on! Ever done knees to elbow? It is always tough for me once I get going!
