What do you do for exercise when you can't go to the Y/gym

I thought this would be appropriate this week since the YMCA is going to be closed for Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

Do you have home exercise equipment? Do you run outside? Do you throw your arms in the air and say "aawwww! The heck with it!" Do you want to do something different that doesn't require ANY equipment? Well  of course you do!! Try this on Friday.....

1. Start with pushups. Begin with 5 slow reps, keeping a 5 second down and 5 second up tempo. Then immediately go into 10 full quick rep pushups. Repeat the 5 slow 5 second tempo pushups, followed quickly by the 10 quick pushups. Jump up and sprint 20 yards down and back. Repeat the cycle 3 times.
2. Begin in a static (still) lunge position with arms overhead. Now do 5 slow reps down and up. Repeat 3 times before switching legs, do the same thing. Now come into squats for 10 (you can add jumps if you like).
Finish this cycle with walking lunges arms overhead for 20 yards down and back. Repeat the cycle 3 times.
3. Last cycle. Begin with a 20 yard sprint. At the end of the 20 yards, drop on the ground and crunch 10 times. Run back and repeat.  Repeat 3 times! Woo Hoo!! You are done...literally :)
Hey...Just thought I'd help you out!

One definition of insanity is: Doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.

  1. A session on my own. I hope I can get the same workout and sweat as those one on one metabolic sessions :)- !
