Exercising indoors

With the continued cold weather and snow / ice in Charlotte, my soccer games were cancelled for the second night in a row last night, so instead of getting some running in, I decided to search online for something I could do in the house instead. I was hoping to find something on Netflix, but ended up going with the Daily Home Workout from The Biggest Loser website. No exercise equipment required, which is a definite plus! 

  • 50 jumping jacks
  • 15 crunches
  • 10 tricep dips
  • 5 push ups
  • 10 squats
  • 10 lunges (each leg)
  • 10 standing calf raises
  • 15 toe touches
  • 15 rotating elbow planks
  • 30-second plank
Luckily, on the site, it gives you examples of each exercise, including pictures, in case you don't know what they're referring to. I did the workout twice, but the second time I switched up the order of a few of the items so that I didn't have as many arms and legs in a row. This was definitely a challenging workout and I can certainly feel it in my muscles today, especially in my arms and hamstrings. The hardest exercise for me was the toe touches - I don't think I'm coordinated enough for that one! Maybe with more practice I can get the hang of them, but I definitely struggled this time. 

What's your go-to workout for when you can't get outside?
