Stuck Inside the House? You Can Still Workout

 

Fall is here, which means cooler temperatures, hurricane season and the start of the “weight gaining season.” Personally, I fall into a bad habit of starting to gain weight around this time as well. I tend to gain about 10 to 15 pounds. I am keeping it real y’all! No lie!  Between cuddling, movies, comfort food, hot chocolate and staying inside in my “fat girl sweats” . Its easy to pack on the extra pounds.

This season, I am determined not to gain weight. Since the cold weather tends to keep me inside at times, I am making a backup plan for workouts at the house. For these days, I found a few simple workouts to do when you are stuck inside the house.

Workout You Can Do At Home

YOGA:

Get your stretch on: unroll your mat and practice yoga. An hour and 20 minutes of light yoga burns 315 calories.

DVDS:

Pop in your favorite cardio DVD such as Bob Harper’s Ultimate Cardio Body or Tracy Anderson’s Cardio Dance
Workout
; you’ll burn 310 calories with 45 minutes of high-impact dancing or aerobics.(We train with beachbody products fyi. We are doing insanity and p90x)

JUMP ROPE:

Jump rope: it doesn’t take much. In just over 30 minutes you’ll burn 305 calories. Pass the time by jumping rope in front of your favorite TV show.

STAIRS:

Walk up and down the stairs: not only will you strengthen your heart and tone your legs and booty, but just under an hour of doing the stairs in your house burns 313 calories.

DUMBBELLS:

Grab your dumbbells: you’ll have to do a lot of bicep curls and push-ups, but after an hour and 45 minutes, you’ll burn 310 calories.

APARTMENT FITNESS C ENTER OR HOUSE EQUIPMENT:

Hit the machines: if you haven’t lost power and you have a treadmill or elliptical at home (lucky you!), go for a run. At a pace of 10 minutes per mile, you’ll burn 300 calories in just over 30 minutes.
