Cooped Up Inside? Sounds Like You Need Some Workout Ideas

Stew Smith

Other ideas:

1 – Get a deck of cards. Pick three exercises you like. One upper body, lower body, and stomach exercise. Go through the deck of cards one at a time and perform (for instance) a pushup, crunch, and a squat for each of the cards. Do the number of the card if 2-10, but all face cards equal 15 reps. Aces equal 20 reps. A joker will equal 25-50 reps depending on your fitness level. Get creative with this workout and change it up regularly.

2 – Mix in step ups onto chairs or a low table for a hard leg and cardio mix workout. Simply step up and step down repeatedly.

I hope this helps you make use of indoor time for the better.
