How To Stay In Shape During A Blizzard

January 4, 2018

 

Snowstorms are a great time to break out some of the basics.  The first and easiest exercise that everyone should try to do while trapped inside is the good old-fashion PUSH-UP.  Despite its boring reputation, the push-up is one of the best exercises you can do, storm or no storm.  With one simple movement , the push-up will hit your shoulders, chest, and triceps, while also strengthening your core, engaging those muscles throughout the movement.  If you cannot do a full push-up, try a modified push-up from your knees.

 

Another simple old fashion exercise is the squat.  With your feet shoulders with a part drop your but to your heels and at the bottom of the squat press back up through your heels.  To modify this exercise start at the edge of a chair with your feet shoulders with apart and through the heels of your feet press down to stand up from the chair.

 

 

Play With Your Kids

 

Pulling your child around in a sled isn't all that different from pushing him or her in a stroller, it's just tougher, since there is more resistance.  But that makes the activity an excellent workout option when your kids are home from school on a snowy day and you still want to slip in some exercise.

 

Sledding or tubing can work as a workout, as well.  Sure you're sliding down a hill, but you have to walk back up the hill as well.  Get in 10 to 12 runs, and you'll have a nice workout.

4 Sets Of 10 to 12 reps of each exercise:
