I combined a workout DVD and made up my own workout.
I started with 8-Minute Abs. If you haven't ever seen this classic 80's workout, it's worth 8-minutes just in entertainment. Hello spandex and soup cans. Check it out. You'll see exactly what I mean.
Annnnyway- so, I started with 8-Minute Abs.
Then, every 3 moves (each move is like 45 seconds, I think) I paused and did between 1:30-3:00 minutes of cardio. What cardio can I do with no treadmill or elliptical at home and without being able to get outside (thank you very much, 1+ foot of snow... still)? Lots! I did the following:
-Twist jumps (like Jillian does in Level 2)
-Running up and down the steps
-Running in place while punching up and down in the air
-Jump Rope (minus the actual rope)
So, after the cardio burst, I went back to the DVD and did 3 more moves then another cardio burst.
After 8-Minute Abs, I continued on and did 8-Minute Arms using 8-pound hand weights, continuing with the cardio bursts. By the end, I did both 8-minute strength workouts and 20 minutes of cardio.
Then, I did a few planks to round out the workout and make it a solid 40-minute workout. At home. With only hand weights needed. And, I was SWEATING and PANTING. It was a damn good workout and, very importantly, the time flew by.
Just goes to show, even if you don't have much equipment and/or can't get out of the house, you can still get in a solid workout that doesn't feel like it drags on and on and on.
Done and done!
