Not sure how to fit an effective workout into your new schedule?
Here are my 3 top tips for free, effective, any ability workouts on YouTube (that I actually use) when I don’t have time to go to the gym, or it’s just to cold/hot/crazy outside:
1. For total body conditioning, toning, and getting your heart rate going, Autumn Calabrese from BeachBody is my go-to because she always has someone in the group showing an adaptation (ex: stepping instead of jumping), she recommends stopping forwater/pausing the video whenever needed and she has 10 minute, 20 minute, 30 minute etc., length videos. You can use weights, or not, it’s up to you! Any workout is better than no workout!
2. For yoga, I like Yoga With Adriene because you can literally type in anything into the YouTube search bar (ex: 10 minute post-run yoga for hamstring stretch, or 7 minute wakeup yoga) and she has it. She’s calm, knows her stuff and is comfortable to watch (some videos are a bit racy on YouTube for yoga). All you need is a mat, but you could do the workout without a mat too.
3. For people who like to dance, I love the Fitness Marshall. He teaches you how to dance to popular songs like Britney Spears, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, etc. Over the years, the dances and song choices (and backgrounds of the video) have seriously improved. I can’t get enough of the Fitness Marshall! You will not only burn a TON of calories, you will be laughing the entire time. Now get going and start your workout!
