Winter has hit in Utah so no more running outside through the crunching leaves for me. I have moved all my workouts to inside and wanted to share 5 workouts that you can do indoors that are my go to’s. These are just a few of my favorites, if you have a favorite share it in the comments below with me. I would love to hear what works for you in the winter time. Okay, let’s be honest, I haven’t been running outside or working out in general… ha so I have started doing small workouts at home and trying to get myself in a routine. With these new workouts comes lots of sore muscles, a tired body, and the feeling of empowerment too though. I wanted to chat with you about the things I have been doing, and what I am doing to help with the sore muscles and tired body.

V-Ups, these take me back to my tumbling days and are something that works your core muscles so much. To start, you are going to lay flat, next lift your body into a V and do around 10 reps per circuit for each of the workout movements below.

Ab bicycles, these are the ab workout that always have my eyes in tears because they work me so hard. You are going to do a crunch, but put your elbow to the opposite knee when you are up, then go back down, and do the opposite side.

Pushups! Everyone loves a good pushup and I love that they work my arms and my core. I do my pushups on my knees right now until I am strong enough to bust them out on my toes. It is totally fine to adapt each workout movement to where you are strength wise! Never feel bad about it, you are working out, making your body stronger, and that is nothing to be ashamed of or feel bad about.

Tricep dips. Find a couch, chair, or bench and put your legs at a 90 degree angle, you will dip down to make your arms at a 90 degree angle and then come back up again. Simple, yet such a good arm workout!

Planks! Make sure to keep your body flat (no camels as we use to call them when I taught gymnastics and dance with your bum in the air). Hold your plank for 30-45 seconds.
Later in the day you will start to feel your muscles becoming sore, achy, and your body becoming tired. That is totally normal and okay. I want to share what I do to help with those things! First, I use heat or ice on my muscles, second, I take some TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain so I can take care of my muscle pain and take my day back. (Use only as directed and for people 12 and older) This helps me to be able to still run around with King, pick him up, etc. Next, I work different muscle groups on different days so I am not working the same muscles all the time. If I have not had my TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain or my 8 hours is up and I am able to take another one and it is bed time, I take TYLENOL® PM which helps to relieve muscle aches, helps me to sleep, and is non-habit forming if used as directed. These are my secret weapons, what are yours to working out in the winter time?
You can snag all the TYLENOL® products I have shared above at your local Target!
