Let’s be honest, when the snow even threatens to land in Oklahoma, Oklahomans freak out. Public school, colleges, and businesses all jumped the gun on closing down today. Maybe you couldn’t go to the gym because your kids ended up staying home from school (sorry about that.. blame the weather people). Maybe the gym closed.. stupid wimps. haha Just kidding.
Turns out the snow did actually come and now it’s like a blizzard. So, heat up with this body weight workout instead of cuddling up with your Netflix and a bag of gummy worms. Maybe even do the workout while watching Netflix.. win, win!! Just don’t eat the gummy worms.
Here’s how the workout goes:
Complete each exercise for 30 seconds them immediately move on to the next exercise. You can take about a 1-2 minute break between your rounds. Complete 4-6 rounds total! You can do it!
Everybody stay safe and warm until this blizzard blow over! 🙂
Enjoy your workout!
