Aside from shoveling (an AMAZING workout, if done with proper form)…here is a perfect snow-day workout you can do in your living room and with just a set of dumbbells (DBs) to keep you nice and warm while you’re snowed in!
The Snow-Booty Workout:
3 circuits: Legs, Arms, Abs
Complete 15 repetitions of each exercise within each circuit, repeat the circuit 3 times, then move on to the next circuit)
Legs: Windmill Lunges (legs wide, lunge side-to-side with your arms in a “T”)
Arms: Overhead DB shoulder press
Abs: Toe reaches (lie on your back, legs up straight, reach for your toes)
Legs: Chair squats (pull up a chair and squat until you hit the chair, then return to a standing position, hold DBs at shoulders for resistance)
Arms: DB twisting punches (hold DBs at shoulders, punch side-to-side, twisting at your waistline, extending your arm across your body)
Abs: Leg lifts (lie on your back, hands under your hips, legs up straight. Lower your legs just before they touch the floor, then lift straight legs to the starting position)
Legs: Lunges with DBs
Abs: Plank (hold for 30 seconds to 1-minute for advanced)
Cool down and stretch….and stay warm!
