We all sometimes get busy and think we don’t have time to workout because there is no time to get to the gym. Well save yourself some time and workout at home! Or at a park, a hotel, in the break room at work… the options are endless! Try this Do Anywhere Leg Workout and let me know how it goes for you!
The Do Anywhere Workout #3 LEGS!!!
10 Burpees (no Push Up)
8ea Single Leg Deceleration Squat to Chair(stand on one leg w/ heel at a chair/bench/bed etc. then slowly lower your butt towards the chair until it just barely touches, then stand up. The taller your chair the easier the exercise will be)
Grab a friend, significant other, or family member and do this workout together! (Don’t worry there are no uphill sprints in this workout – however those are really good for you! :))
This picture is from a few months ago when my boyfriend and I went on a hike on Mt. Tam and came across this rock amphitheater in the hills! It was so random haha. Of course he challenged me to 6 sprints – from the fence (you can see it in the background) up all the steps to the top. Unexpected intervals added into our hike!
Anyways here is a workout for you and your partner to do! Enjoy!
PARTNER WORKOUT – One person does exercise A for 1 minute while your partner does exercise B for 1 minute; then switch. Do each set 3x before moving on to the next partner set.
SET 1: A) Wide/Narrow Push Ups (Alternate 2 w/ wide hand stance, then 2 w/ narrow hand stance); B) Jump Rope (or “invisible jump rope” if you don’t have one – move arms as if you did)
SET 2: A) Speed Skaters (click here for how-to video); B) Forward Walking Lunges (make sure front knee does not go past your front toe – safety first!)
SET 3: A) Single Leg Squats (stand on one leg, decelerate SLOWLY until your butt touches a bench, couch, chair etc the stand back upright, switch leg every 3 reps); B) Four Square Jumps (keeping your feet together, jump forwards, right, backwards, left – like you are making a little box)
If you have time, finish with a two-mile walk or run with your partner!
Nobody to join you today? You can also do it by yourself! 🙂
