Wednesday Workout: Jumping Jack & Total Body Blast

Happy Wednesday, friends! How about the nasty weather yesterday? On the one hand it was nice to be WFH, but on the other hand it made it hard to want to work; nasty weather like that just makes me want to curl up and watch movies all day (even though I don’t know the last time I’ve ever done that!).

Today’s workout is great for a rainy day when you don’t want to go to the gym/leave the house. I did this a few weeks ago with a pair of dumbbells- easy enough! The way the workout works is that each circuit will have jumping jacks, a lower body exercise, an upper body exercise and a core exercise- a classic full body workout. You’ll complete each circuit 3 times and it took me just about 30-35 minutes which was perfect for an early morning workout.

I think everything should be fairly standard, but the one thing you might not recognize is the table top crunch, which I got from Lauren. To do this you start on your back with your feet in the table top position and a weight in your hands. You want to make sure you keep your core tight and your lower back pressed to the ground as you crunch up & pretend to place the weight on your shins. SLDL= single leg deadlift. If you need explanation on anything else, just let me know in the comments!

I really enjoyed this workout- I hope you try it!

Also ,the weather looks decent for tonight and tomorrow night so if you’re planning your workouts, consider joining me for my 5K bootcamp tonight and fighters conditioning tomorrow night. Both are in the seaport district by Gather/District hall and tonight is at 6pm and tomorrow night is at 5:30pm.

Questions for you: Do you take advantage of rainy days and curl up to the TV or with a book if your schedule allows for it? Do you still try and get a workout in? What’s a cardio move you like?
