One thing that did not worry me about social distancing and changing up the way we do things was working out at home. I have written TONS of blog posts all about working out at home and it’s something that I have been doing for years. Yes, I love the gym and my barre studio but I knew I had the capabilities to work out at home. If this is an area you have been struggling with don’t worry! I have got you covered today. I am sharing all about how I’ve been working out at home during social distancing.
How I’ve Been Working Out At Home During Social Distancing
Cardio: This is the time I really miss our elliptical. We had an elliptical in our old house but we ended up giving it to the new owners because it was SO hard to move downstairs! So I have been doing LOTS of walks with the family, sometimes more than once a day. I have been walking inside when the weather is bad (to get my 10K steps) and sometimes I will go for runs.
Toning: We have a weight set so I have been doing lots of weights. I also do Pure Barre on Demand 4-5 times a week for toning. I have done a few OBE fitness workouts and some Beach Body workouts too! There are endless options for workouts to do online right now. Plus a TON of studios are offering live classes via Instagram and Facebook as well!
Yoga: I have always LOVED yoga and I love doing yoga early in the morning before everyone is awake. I will take my mat in the living room and do a 20-30 minute SarahBethYoga workouts via Youtube. These are so great to start the day and get a good stretch in.
One thing that has really kept me motivated to keep up with my at-home workouts is getting myself some cute clothes! Since not only am I doing workouts but I am basically living in workouts clothes all the time It seemed like a great investment. I grabbed another pair of my favorite adidas running shoes, and my favorite adidas tights. They are so great and I feel great in them while I am still trying to get back to my pre-baby size! I feel like putting on something you feel good in not only makes you feel good but gives you the motivation!
Have you been working out at home? What have you been doing?
