Rainy Day Workout

Apparently it’s rainy season here. Which means humidity is rising, bugs are coming out of the woodwork, and workouts need to be done inside. Today prevented the girls and me from leaving our apartment (partly due to the rain, mainly because Adam had our one car we own here in Japan), so I decided an indoor workout was the only way I would get some exercise today.

I went on Pinterest, found a workout I had pinned a while back, tweaked it just a little bit, and got to work. After my fourth repetition of this workout I was dripping in sweat and could hardly feel my arms*.

I thought I would share the workout with you in case you are rained in and desiring a good workout. I did the entire list as hard and fast as I could to get as much cardio out of it as I could, took a minute or so break at the end, and began again. I repeated it four times through. It should take 20 minutes total, or that’s about what it took me.

30 jumping jacks

5 push-ups

25 knee highs

10 crunches

7 squats

5 push-ups

10 crunches

45 second wall sit

5 push-ups

25 knee highs

*Please don’t judge. I will be the first to admit I am not blessed in upper arm strength. So after 80 push-ups, when my arms were about to fall off, I thought it best to not complete the desired fifth time through.
