The gym might be closed, but you can still get your body moving! Join fitness instructor Jeremy Park and In The Know for an at-home workout that will get your heart pumping and have sweat flying in your living room — not to mention, get your muscles toned and tight.
If you’re strapped for time, this workout uses all of your muscles for a full-body burn in less than 20 minutes.
You don’t need any equipment, except a yoga mat or something similar if you’re working out on a hard surface. If you want to add resistance to make any of the moves more challenging, you can use weights, bands or things found around your home that feel heavy to you. However, using your own bodyweight here should be enough to get you sweating.
1. Inchworm Push-Ups (4 sets, 10 reps)
Start by standing tall, then reach your hands down to the floor and crawl out to a plank position. Do one push-up and then walk your hands back to standing position.
2. Jumping Lunges (4 sets, 15 reps)
Start in a lunge position with your right leg in front and left leg in back, or vice versa. Then, jump to switch legs. Use your arms to help you balance by swinging forward the opposite arm from your front leg.
3. V-Ups (3 sets, 15 reps)
Start by laying flat on your back with your legs straight out and hands over your head. Pull your abs in, and keep your lower back on the floor. Then, using your abs, raise your legs and torso, reaching your hands to your toes to make a “v” position.
4. Shoulder Taps (3 sets, 30 seconds)
While in a high plank position, use one hand to tap the opposite shoulder and repeat. Engage your core to keep your hips from rocking. If you need to, you can spread your feet wider for more stability.
5. Burpees (3 sets, 20 reps)
This cardio move will definitely get you sweating! Standing tall, jump down to the floor into a high plank position, do one push-up, then jump your feet back in to stand tall, and end with a vertical jump up.
