Whit’s 10-Minute Bodyweight Workout
In the winter it’s hard to get outside and be active.
The days are shorter and, despite your best efforts, the last thing you want to do when it’s pitch-black and cold outside at 6 a.m. is go for a jog. Couple that with frequent rain or snow (well, maybe not snow here in LA, but you get the picture) and some days you don’t want to leave the house at all – much less to go to the gym.
Frequent traveling around the holidays throws another wrench in your exercise plans – making winter workouts all that much harder.
But fitness doesn’t have to be uncomfortable and inconvenient.
In the winter, my favorite thing to do are quick, equipment-free bodyweight workouts in the comfort of my own home (or hotel room when I’m traveling).
I make them short, but intense and effective, so squeezing in a burn sesh doesn’t burn through my whole day.
Bodyweight exercises are perfect because they require no prep and you can do them anywhere, anytime. They not only get your heart rate up and give you a great cardio workout, but also challenge your muscles and help build strength.
They’re easy to modify for all levels, so you can get your friends and family involved and everyone can get a workout that works for them.
This 10-minute bodyweight workout incorporates cardio, plyometrics, strength training and isometric core work. Give it a go the next time you need a fun, efficient routine and don’t feel like braving the blistering cold.
If you’re feeling extra energized, do the whole thing twice.
Cold and rain be darned – we’re going to stay fit this winter!
