“3 at-home workouts”

The holiday season is in full swing, and sometimes it’s tough to find the time to get to the gym. That’s where an at-home workout could really come in handy. Well, look no further, because I’ve written 3 at-home, no equipment workouts for you to try. Do one, or do all three. Either way, you’ll be guaranteed to break a sweat!

Leg Burner

3 rounds:

20 body weight squats

20 lunges (10 each side)

20 standing leg lifts

20 body weight sumo squats

Tips: On all squats, keep your chest up. Keep your abs tight when doing your leg lifts. Leg lifts are done 45 degrees to the back. A “sumo squat” is referring to the stance of your feet. A wide sumo stance like a sumo wrestler would do!

Ab Rocker

50 crunches

40 shoulder taps

30 mountain climbers

20 bicycle crunches

10 sit-ups

20 bicycle crunches

30 mountain climbers

40 shoulder taps

50 crunches

Tips: When you are doing shoulder taps, hold yourself in the plank position (the top of a push up), and tap the opposite shoulder with the opposite hand. Crunches are sitting half way up, and sit-ups are sitting all the way up.

Arm Builder

3 rounds for time:

10 push-ups

10 T push-ups

10 pike push-ups

1:00 rest

Tips: When you are doing ANY variation of a push-up, always keep your elbows in close to your ribs. A “T push-up” is when you do a push-up and turn to the side, reaching up to make a T with your body. Switch sides after each repetition. When you do a pike push-up, keep your elbows moving backnot out to the side.

Here is a video showing each movement! Happy Holidays, and Happy Sweating!
