With the weather getting colder, it’s just as important as ever to keep (or start) exercising as it was in the warmer months. However, with the changing season, getting in your physical activity outdoors may be increasingly difficult, or even dangerous.
So, no matter what your normal routine is, it’s time to think about how to modify it for the colder weather. Here’s a few ideas you can try in your home:
Yoga or Pilates Classes
Did you know that there are many classes that you can do in the comfort of your home? There are classes available on Youtube for free, but there are also subscriptions, like Dailyburn, that you can purchase as well!
Weights and Resistance Bands
To keep your muscles toned, grab a small set of hand weights or even resistance bands to do a range of exercises. You can work all of your muscles in your arms, in addition to your legs and glutes as well.
Run or Cycle
If you’re an avid runner or cyclist, perhaps it’s time to consider investing in a treadmill or stationary bike. There’s no better way to get cardiovascular exercise!
Use the Stairs
Use the stairs to help you do squats or simply climb them!
Whether you’re interested in a simple workout or something much more intense, there are a range of videos out there for you to do in the comfort of your home. Did you know that there are several Christian exercise videos out there for believers?
You might consider options like The Daniel Plan, Witness to Fitness, Walk Strong Look Up, and 20-Minute Praise Moves.
Use Household Items
Did you know that you can do many workouts with simple household items? You can use a chair to work out your triceps, you can use soup cans as weights, and you can even use a wall to help you do squats. Do a quick search on the internet for other ideas.
