Five Ways to Stay Active During the Storm
While these are pretty old school, they’re a great way to warm up and get some cardio in your work out. You can even challenge yourself. For example, every time there’s a roll of thunder, or a loud gust outside, try a set of 50.
If you’re looking to strengthen your abdominals, this is a great way to do it. No fancy machines needed, just a spot to lie on. Crunches will give you solid abs in less than five minutes. And remember to keep your head up! Bonus: you can look outside at movie-worthy weather while you’re flattening those abs.
Of all the conditioning exercises I’ve done these might be my least favorite; however, they get the job done. These will petrify both your calves and thighs rock -hard in a matter of a few short yet tiring minutes, and if they get too difficult, don’t worry about having to bend your knees.
Just because school is cancelled doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the strenuous walks up to the third floor. Try running up and down your own staircase a few times. It’s a good way to get some cardio in while strengthening your leg muscles.
Probably my personal favorite, a good pillow fight is a fun way to work out without really working out. After a good pillow fight when you were younger, did you ever notice how tired you were? I did. And with all the hurricane drama stirring up, what better way to get in some exercise while having a few laughs?
