Snowed In Workouts (Blog #35)

November 26, 2014

 

With the winter and snow upon us, the ability to get to the gym for some can be a lot tougher.  If you guys are anything like me I need my "fix" of weight training; if I don't get it I can be one miserable bastard.  The snow tonight inspired this blog because I don't want you guys to sit around and do nothing during snow days.  Below will be a couple of workouts that you guys can choose from, depending on who you are and how advanced your training is....Enjoy!

 

 

Workout #1:  "The Couch Burner"

 

Spend 5 Minutes rolling around on the floor and some light stretching (worlds greatest stretch, super mans, leg swings, neck rolls, etc)  

 

1a.  Split Squat 10-15 Reps Each Leg (right to)

1b.  Push Ups (until form failure) 

 

Rest 1 Minute  --  Repeat 3 or 4 Times

 

 

2a.  Double Leg or Single Leg Glute Bridge 20 Reps Each Leg (Placing your feet on your couch and your butt on the floor, bridge up, squeeze the glute and back down)

Rest 1 Minute  --  Repeat 3 or 4 Times 

 

 

3a.  Crawls Out (from a standing position, crawl out to a push up position and then quickly walk your way back up to a standing position / never move your feet)  15 Reps (right to)

3b.  Paper Plate Fallouts - (Kneeling down, place your hands on paper plates and slowly slide out and fall to your belly in a controlled manner)  10 reps  (If you're a rookie, just do planks)
