The must-try indoor winter workouts


 
Stuck inside because of the chilly, blustery weather with no way to work out? Think again, girlies! With these new ways to get your workout inside, ya won’t miss the fresh air at all, promise!
 

Run the stairs

Running doesn’t always have to be about time and distance. You can get just as much out of running a set of stairs in your house as you would running around the block. By jogging up and down your stairs for five minutes, you work many of the same muscles as you would by running regularly and give some much needed attention to a few other muscles in your thighs. (Plus, running upstairs burns more cals than on a flat surface!)
 

Lunges

We know, we know you all hate the process of lunging up and down over and over again, but mix it up this season and blast your favorite song that pumps you up and lunge to the beat. Try lunging for one entire track—you wont even notice how much time has flown by.
 
Planks
Although they may seem like a waste of time, planks are a great help when it comes to strengthening your core. Hold the pushup position on your palms and the tips of your toes for 60 seconds, then release. Then, try holding plank for 30 seconds, and then dropping to a low pushup and holding for 10 seconds. (Psst! No cheating! Use a stopwatch for the best results.) The movement will keep you from getting bored and allowing your body to sag. We promise, your heart will be beating in no time.
 
Take the extra step
Change up your normal routine by adding some extra pounds with filled water bottles. If you’re up for the challenge, up the intensity on your lunges and stairs running by carrying a water bottle in each hand for extra oomph.
