Even with the greatest dedication in the world, sometimes you can’t make it to the gym. When the weather gets cold and the roads get icy, it’s good to have a back up plan if it becomes unwise to travel. Here are our top home based exercises you can enjoy as Jack Frost inflicts havoc outside. Clear a little space in your living room and get sweating! You’ll soon forget it’s cold outside.
Make sure you do a thorough warm up and cool down. This should be part of your regular routine, but it is extra important when the weather is cold outside as your muscles will not be as loose as in milder temperatures. So thaw out with stretches and some light jogging on the spot before you begin!
