Indoor Exercise

Postby whit3tig3y » Tue Jul 08, 2008 9:15 am

It's not raining cats and dogs here, its raining horses and cows!!! And apparently its not going to let up for nearly a week :( What i'm looking for is some exercise that I can do inside my house as I can't really afford a gym membership.

I thought about maybe doing some skipping inside, but don't have a skipping rope lol Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

Running on the spot, squats & lunges, leg lifts. If you have a couple of old phone books you can tape them together & use it as a stepper & step away to music (some of the other girls on here do this). You can use things you have around the house for weights & do some hand/arm weights. Or just put on your favourite CD & dance away.

I have 3 small children at home who all nap at lunchtimes so I have "spare time" to exercise then but obviously cannot leave the house, so here is what I do:

1. Stationary bike........I got a cheap but effective one from Deals Direct for about $60
2. Intervals up and down the stairs: run up, walk down. About 100 times, LOL!
3. I have an exercise DVD that I got from KMart for a few dollars that I do: its a pilates one: good for the core
4. Squats, lunges, pushups
5. Fit ball/swiss ball

try getting a wii and play wii sports and wiifit! Seriously its fun and it really does make you sweat. Careful of that wiimote though, coz I already accidently threw it at the tv twice. Good thing I'm a bad shot and missed it completely. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

SparkPeople has heaps of free online workout videos. Or just type 'workout' into YouTube to find some exercise videos. Another idea is to check out your local library. They usually have fitness DVDs available for loan.

Good luck!
