I love running outside, but sometimes, especially during winter, you just need to get in a good workout indoors. Yes, I could just run inside on the treadmill, but that would get very boring every day. What I love to do try other types of workouts in between running days.

Incorporating different types of workout  is not only a good way to beat boredom, but also very beneficial to your overall health. It allows you work different muscle groups and train with a different mindset. Most of the time I work with medium to heavy weights. However, a body-weight workout gives your body a break from lifting while still getting your heart rate up and body moving.

Here is one of my favorite indoor body-weight workout. You won’t need any weights for this workout. Just some space and maybe a yoga mat if you have hardwood floors like I do.

The Winter Indoor Body-weight Workout:

  • 10 Jump (or Switch) Lunges
  • 10 Burpees
  • 10 Jump Squats
  • 20 Sit-ups
  • 20 Mount Climbers
  • 20 Calf Raises
  • 30 Russian Twists
  • 30 Jumping Jacks
  • 30 High Knees
  • 1-minute Plank

Repeat this set 3 times, giving yourself about 1 minute rest between sets. It gets your heart pumping and by the end you’ll be a sweaty mess. Have fun!
