7 At-Home Workouts You Can Do While Riding Out Any Winter Storm
At-Home Cardio Workout
No one feels like going to the gym when it's snowy, slushy, or rainy outside. I mean, that's one of the reasons working out at home is so fab. That's why trainer and fitness YouTuber Kym Perfetto crafted this at-home cardio workout that you can do anywhere, anytime—and that's not even the best part. To get a serious sweat started, you also won't need any equipment and barely any space—so basically, there's no excuse to cop out. Simply blast through each move for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, and repeat as many times as you want.
30-Minute CrossFit Workout
You'll definitely see muscle definition that inspires confidence after crushing this classic CrossFit-style workout by Jared Stein, cofounder and head coach at WillyB CrossFit in New York City. The 30-minute workout starts with a couple warm-up exercise, followed by a strength-training portion. It ends with a metcon (metabolic conditioning), which is 21 reps of three simple exercises (kettlebell swings, burpees, and goblet squats), then 15 reps, then nine—with no built-in rest. "See how hard you can go until you finish," says Stein. "It's tailored so that right when you hit the point of total exhaustion, you'll be at the finish line."
14-Minute Full-Body Circuit
Similar to the workouts on Kayla Itsines' Sweat with Kayla app, this workout consists of a two-round circuit, each lasting seven minutes. Start by setting your timer, and aim to complete all five exercises in the circuit as many times as you can before the time's up. Then, take a 30-second break and reset your timer for another seven minutes. Complete the circuit again for your full 14-minute workout. (Next up, try Itsines' do-anywhere seven-minute circuit.)
5-Minute At-Home Workout for Strong, Sexy Arms
Trainer and overall badass Kym Perfetto (@KymNonStop) is back and ready to help you score strong, lean arms that you're proud of with this five-minute, five-move, at-home arm workout. (She's your go-to girl for lower abs workouts and inner thigh exercises, too.)
All you'll need is a mat (and even that is optional). Simply do each exercise for 30 seconds, then move on to the next. Once you're done with all five, repeat the circuit one more time. (Looking for a workout that uses weights? Try this at-home dumbbell arm workout instead.)
The Ultimate Lower-Abs Workout
Emily Skye, a Reebok Global Ambassador, creator of the F.I.T. program, and the ultimate social media fitspiration, created this workout to blast your core from every angle. Simply grab a mat and do 10 to 15 reps of each move two or three times each—or however many times as you want. (Pair this abs workout with her kettlebell workout for a better butt or these five HIIT moves you can do anywhere—yep, like your living room.)
Crazy Tough 4-Minute Tabata Workout
If you're looking to switch things up, these four unique exercises from trainer Kaisa Keranen (@KaisaFit) should do the trick. Together, they will test your strength and coordination while getting you sweaty in just four minutes flat. (ICYMI these are the Tabata basics you need to know.)
Here's how it works: Do as many reps as possible for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat the circuit two to four times. The end.
