Don’t let a small space discourage you from working out! You can workout ANYWHERE at ANYTIME! You need to think outside the box, get a little creative, and just do it. I live in a tiny space with a tiny deck, and when I cannot make it to the gym, I will tackle a quick, challenging, and sweaty workout right at home. Here are a few of my favorite moves that help strengthen your entire body, while also improving your balance, endurance, and, of course, always your CORE!
And did I mention that these moves require no space at all? So jump on your yoga mat and get it done!
Curtsey Lunge with Biceps Curl – This move is definitely one of my favorites for strengthening my legs! It targets all those hard-to-reach muscles that often get neglected. And by adding in the biceps curl, it not only strengthens your biceps, but also helps to improve your balance, core, and burn more fat. Try doing this move for 1 minute!
Reverse Lunge with Shoulder Raise – Lunges never seem to get easier for me, and reverse lunges are perfect for building strength and balance. Add in the shoulder raise and your heart rate goes up; you are now strengthening your entire body in one single move. Feel the burn with this effective strength training move and remember to just breathe and embrace all the benefits, no matter how much your legs are barking at you. Try doing this move for 1 minute!
Vinyasa Burpees – I cannot believe that I am actually sharing these as I despise burpees with a PASSION. It is a love-hate relationship, as I love how it is improving my endurance, increasing my strength, and ALWAYS challenges me. Try doing this move for 1 minute!
Plies with Biceps Curls – Another move to help strengthen those hard to reach leg muscles, while also improving your balance and endurance. Start doing the plies with biceps curls for 1 minute. Embrace that burn and all the amazing benefits that your body will get inside and out.
