Snow Day Workout: Burn Calories with No Equipment

Snow Day Workout Bodyweight

This winter has brought us nearly all types of weather here in West Michigan. From sub zero temperatures, to snow, rain, ice, and even humidity – we’ve had it all. As we progress into the depths of winter, our snow day likelihood increases. Whether or not your work/school officially has a snow day, some days it’s just safer to stay inside. When it takes more time to warm up your car than it does to drive to the gym, it’s probably best to stay home.

I don’t know about you, but my motivation to go anywhere in the winter is so much lower. Whether it’s an errand or a trip to the gym – I always love the opportunity to complete a task from home. Knowing that I can get a really quality workout in while at home in my living room is the best.

When I began my fitness journey, I always used to avoid working out at home because I thought I wouldn’t burn as many calories. I believed that without a machine or weights, my workout was pointless. Man was I wrong! Bodyweight moves are some of the most efficient, and depending on the moves and your intensity – are often most effective.

I’ve created a workout that combines strength and cardio in 4 different sets. Each of the sets are meant to be repeated, and you can adjust the repetitions based on your fitness level. This workout includes some of the most challenging moves – ones that leave me sore for days. It will challenge you all while feeling attainable, and can easily be adjusted to fit your needs.

If you’re looking for a great calorie burn to increase your strength, this workout is for you!
