I know, the weather is beginning to get a little chilly so you start fudging on your workouts. The Holiday events and invitations will soon begin coming and your “to do” list will grow AND your workout window will SHRINK. So, keep this little workout handy and you have no excuses to keep your fitness level at its peak and your STRESS level low!
You will need weights, a jump rope (or your imagination) and some room to move – that’s it-
BEDROOM (or any room) BOOTCAMP!
Begin with a 2 minute Warm-up:
2 minute March in Place (high knees!)
1 minute Squat (with weights if you have them)
1 minute Squats
1 minute Jumping Jacks
30 Crunches (on the floor with knees in tabletop over your hips, not chest for maximum abdominal work)
20 Walking Lunges with Bicep Curls
1 minute Jumping Rope (use your imaginary rope if you don’t have one!)
20 Tricep Dips (coffee table works great here!)
1 minute running with High Knees
