As it is a rainy, gloomy, and let’s face it, a lazy day here in Iowa, it got me thinking of the direct effect of the weather on our moods. Most rainy days bring out the lazy, relaxed moods in even the most energetic of us, which is okay. Go ahead and curl up on that couch and pop and old movie in (my intentions for the rest of the day) but know that you will feel so much better if you get your body moving first, during, or after that spurt of laziness.
Don’t feel like going out in the wet and driving in the rain just to get a little sweat on? NO PROBLEM! Here is an at home rainy day workout that will make you more than a little sweaty!
AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible): 15,20,25, or 30 minutes- you choose! Just make it fast and intense
- 10 burpees
- 20 jump lunges
- 30 push ups
- 40 sit ups
- 50 squats

*Try adding weights- anything that has weight– to your sit ups or holding during the lunges or squats!*
