If you cant make it to the box but still want to work out, weve got some ideas that can be done at home. Dont worry, you wont need a barbell, but keep in mind these exercises are not meant to replace the work we do in class. Air Squats: Dont forget to keep your feet shoulder-width apart and your chest up. Try putting a stack of books, or anything else you can find thats about the height of a medicine ball behind you. Use that as your marker, attempting to get down low enough for your backside to touch it. Add to the challenge by making it a jumping squat instead. Planks: Usually WODs ask you to hold planks for a set amount of time, but try holding one for as long as possible, making sure theres a timer nearby so you can track your progress. Up the fun factor by recruiting a friend or family member thats home to cheer you on. Burpees: Need we say more?! Bear crawls and crab walks: Push the coffee table aside or hang out in the longest hallway youve got and bear crawl to one end, then flip over and walk back on all fours. Single leg lunges: Your goal is to lower your hips until your knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle, with the weight on your heels. Keeping a chair nearby is great for working on your balance. The list keeps going! But if youre looking for a little inspiration, were hooking you up with at at-home workout right here. Check it out and tell us what you think! 30 minutes: AMRAP 25 jumping squats 25 single leg lunges (25 each side) 25 burpees 10 bear crawls/crab walks Finish up by planking until failure.
