at-home workout #1

“Get Moving” is going to be for you the next couple weeks. It is going to be at home workouts you can complete in under an hour and with just a set of handweights. A friend that is taking my fitness class suggested I post the workouts on my blog and I thought it was a great idea. So, be looking for ways you can “Get Moving” here. Now the easy part will be reading it, the harder part will be making yourself do it. Don’t make excuses, don’t say you’ll do it tomorrow, just do it – you’ll feel good and probably have more energy that you did when you were sitting thinking about it.

Workout #1

Go through the sets consecutively with no break 5 times, then move on to the next set. Do the third set (abs) 6 times.

#1

  • Jumping Jacks – 20
  • Squats –  15
  • Burpees – 10 (Squat down, feet jump out to push up position, feet jump back in to squat, jump (or stand up)

  • Push Ups – 5

#2

  • High Knees (in place) – 20
  • Alternating Lunges  – 15
  • Jump Squats – 10
  • Push Ups – 5

#3

  • Bicycle Crunch – 20
  • Russian Twist – 15 (Sit with knees bent and feet on floor – twist side to side and touch floor by outside of hip. To make it harder – lift your feet off the floor)
  • Table Top – 10  (Lay down on floor, legs extended to 90 degrees. Alternating dropping on leg to the ground almost (but not) touching the floor and pull leg back up to 90 degrees. To make it harder – do both legs together).
  • Side Crunch – 5 (each side)

  1. Hi Lindsey! It’s Lori Pitts and I am following your blog and love it! Hopefully you remember me! Thanks for posting about working out from home. I have a newborn and can’t get to the gym for a few more months, so these ideas are great! I had a question about this workout, should I do # 1 and # 2 five times in a row and then do # 3? No breaks except for between the workouts right? Thanks!

    • Hi Lori! Thank you and I’m so glad you like and are following my blog! Yes, you’ve got the right idea for the workout – Do #1 5 times, #2, 5 times, then #3 6 times. Phew. 🙂 I couldn’t agree more with you and love finding good workouts that you can do at home and still feel like you did something. Congrats on your baby!
