The last few blogs have been about exercise, and that is going to continue. Mostly because at my work, we’ve begun our version of the Biggest Loser and there are paid time off we can earn if we can lose a percentage. That inspired me to write another post about the subject since it has become a part of my life.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m not an exercise guru. I find myself staring at the equipment or contemplating how to convince myself not to run. It’s still a struggle for finding the time and the energy to do it with all the other essential things in my life. That is why I’ve decided to try and see some easy exercises that I can do in my house.
Going back to a YouTube channel that has shown me some pretty good moves in the past. I found the following video that is simple, quiet (cause I’m the first one up and don’t want to wake up the kids) and comfortable to do.
One of the things I like about this one is that it does not take up a lot of room to do and it does work the upper body. It looks simple, but I found that after a while, my arms would get heavy which would add to the challenge of doing it.
I like to meld this one in with my old military routine of push-ups, sit-ups and mountain climbers that work the lower body. It’s cold at present, so I have not tried doing this before or after running just yet.
Why don’t you take a look at this and some of the other exercises on the site? I know I found a bunch that was helpful to my situation and I know for me, it’s always good to keep up the workouts.
