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


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

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.

Is technology going to save the world. . . or kill it?
