No more excuses: Steps to keep you moving this rainy season

Wellness - By Nina Odongo | June 13th 2019 at 09:10:00 GMT +0300

Too cold and rainy to leave the house? Here is a full-body workout you can do at home that combines cardio, strength training and flexibility.

1. Lunge jumps

Start in a neutral position with elbows bent at ninety degrees. Lunge with your right foot, then jump straight up into the air, raising your arms for momentum. Switch legs mid-air and land in a lunge, left leg forward. Repeat for twenty counts.

2. Skipping

  2. 1. What you need to know about a low-carb diet before trying one
  3. 2. How to roll with the punches
  4. 3. Fitness: Four surprising ab exercises
  5. 4. What does self-care look like?

Grab a skipping rope and, keeping feet together and landing softly, do 100 skips non-stop. Try to avoid double skips in between rope turns.

3. Sun Salutation

Start in mountain pose, then do an upward salute. Do a forward bend then step into a low lunge then both legs back into a high plank. Do a Chaturanga into upward dog then transition into downward dog. Step into a low lunge, then forward into a bend, back into an upward salute and finish in mountain pose. Repeat 6-12 times.

4. Bicycles

Lie on your back with fingers at your temples and knees bent. Extend alternate legs, simultaneously rotating your torso, touching your opposite elbow to knee. Repeat for 30 counts.
