Fit Friday: The Anywhere Workout

Christmas can come with a lot of stress, travel, not enough time and way too much food but it's important to still try to get your workout in. You don't need to get to a gym or even set aside an entire hour to get some sort of workout in.
No machines, no weights necessary!!
To start:  Run up and down your stairs for 2-3 mins as fast as you can (if you own a skip rope you could use this for your warm up too, if not, most people have stairs ;))
  7 burpees Jump straight up, then dropped to the floor, lower body with control and pop back up to jump and repeat

10 pushups Pretty side down, hold your body up with your hands and toes, slowly bring body down so your back is flat and your chest comes to hover over the floor. If this is too difficult put your knees to the floor and do the same
15 mountain climbers Pretty side down, hold body up on hands and toes, bring 1 knee into body/hands, back to resting, then the other knee towards body/hand, repeat

Rest 1-2 mins
10 jump squats Get into squat position, legs hip distance apart, knees bent, jump and when you land go back into a low squat, repeat.

10 leg lifts Lay flat on your back, raise legs straight to 90 degree and then slowly with control lower them to hover over the floor
10 kick outs (10 with each leg) get into table position with hands shoulder distance apart, legs hips distance apart, resting on knees and hands, back is flat like a table. Kick out one leg to be level and even with hip, bring back down and repeat.

rest 1-2 mins
15 sit ups, lay with back on the ground, legs slightly apart, feet flat on the ground, with control bring your upper body off the ground towards your legs using your core muscles
10 tricep dips, Grab a chair, have palms on the end of the chair and slowly lower your body down and then back up again.

Rest 1-2 mins, then Repeat 2x-3x!

  3. That sounds like a really intense workout, but I think I'll give it a try. I'm on vacation, so I won't be at the gym for a week or so and could use the ideas.

    1. It's actually really hard haha, doing stairs for 2-3 mins full out is kind of nuts!!


Thank you for the love!
