The weekend is here! I am super excited because my hubby has been out of town all week and it’s always extra exhausting taking care of 3 young children solo. I feel for you single parents out there. I will be handing off the kids first thing Saturday morning when I plan on getting a good long run in and go for a haircut! Thrilled for both actually!
As I’ve mentioned before, it’s hard to make it to a gym when you’ve got several young children so I love to share at-home workouts or ones that you can do on a lunch break if you work. When I worked a few years ago, I never took a real lunch break but instead changed into my workout clothes and either went for a run or found a spot to exercise (luckily several of my previous jobs had small hotel size gyms on location). I would usually eat on a quick break either before or after my actual “lunch break”. This worked fabulously for me.
I always felt way more energized when I returned to work that it was so worth the effort.
If you are one that sweats a lot, just pack a towel for your sponge bath and bring along some body spray or perfume. It’s really not that big of deal. Believe me I’ve heard that excuse one too many times! Unless you are giving a very important presentation you will be just fine! Sweat dries!
So here is another no-equipment needed workout. My favorite kind! I suggest you start a pin board so when you are working or have some free time at home you will have some to choose from!
I am also sharing some additional no-equipment needed workouts from some fellow health bloggers. Go check out their lovely sites and PIN or bookmark those workouts. You will thank me later!
