2020 has forced us all to think outside the box. COVID-19 essentially shut down the country closing gyms, restaurants, bars, schools and non-essential businesses in an attempt to keep the virus from spreading. While some industries struggled to stay afloat, sporting goods stores couldn’t keep their shelves stocked.

Working out at home is simple and minimal equipment is needed. If you don’t have dumbbells pick up gallon jugs filled with water, canned food, paint cans or any other similar style object with a little heft to it.

Are you looking for variety in your workout? Grab your weights and hang on for the ride because this workout, while unassuming, will kick your ass.

The Workout – Upper Body

Floor Press – 15
Bent Over Row- 15
Shoulder Press- 15
Glute Bridges- 15
Renegade Row- 15 (one rep is a row on each side)

Repeat set 3x

The Workout – Lower Body

Lunges – 15 per leg alternating legs
Squats – 15
Single Leg Dead Lift – 15 per leg alternating legs
Single Leg Glute Bridges- 15 per leg alternating legs
Side Lunges – 15 per side alternating sides

Repeat set 3x

Stretch It Out

When you first incorporate new moves into your workout regimen you may experience a build up of lactic acid in the day(s) following exercise. To minimize (or avoid) this all together be sure to stretch your muscles post workout to stimulate circulation and relieve tension. This also helps bring more oxygen to your muscles in an attempt to reduce lactic acid production.

more about me

Lover of Peloton, brussel sprouts and prosecco (with a tiny splash of Pom), I ditched the stiletto heels and pencil skirts of corporate America for the business coach uniform of boyfriend jeans, wedges and cute t-shirts . One thing that remains constant is my love for flaunting my personality with bold statement jewelry pieces (and my penchant for always respectfully telling it like it is). I prefer coffee over tea, cake over pie and I rarely meet a bottle of wine I don't like. Are we destined to be besties? Hit the contact tab!

I'm Kristin, your new get-a-grip friend.

hey cupcake!
