Feeling antsy? Try this at-home, equipment free workout

With so many of us being confined to our homes right now, it is easy to understand how and why we might be feeling a little jittery. Feeling a little claustrophobic or antsy is likely something many of us are experiencing as of late, and with limited social outings and of course social distancing, it can be difficult to figure out how to burn some extra energy.

I did a little bit of research to see if I could come across a well-rounded, equipment-free workout regime many of us could do at home, and I found the following routine via SELF. If you’re feeling fidgety, give it a try to burn off some stress.

“Warm-up:

Do each move for 20 seconds. Do this warm-up twice.

  • Jumping jack
  • Inchworm walk out to shoulder tap
  • Squat
Circuit:

Do each move for 45 seconds. Rest for 15 seconds in between each move. Do the entire circuit twice.

  • Blast-off push-up
  • Squat thrust
  • Pendulum lunge
  • Mountain climber twist
  • Pause squat
  • Plank up to frogger
Burnout ladder:

Do 1 rep of each, then 2 reps of each, then 3 reps, etc., and go as high as you can get in 3 minutes.

  • Touchdown jack
  • Panther shoulder tap
  • Burpee
Cool-down:

Do each move for 10 to 30 seconds…or longer if it feels good and you have time.

  • Child’s pose
  • Downward Facing Dog
  • Forward fold
  • Standing quad stretch
  • Shoulder circle

If you’re unsure of how to perform any of these designated exercises, be sure to check out the original article, linked above, which provides an explanation for every move listed.

If some of these movements are difficult for you, there are ways to modify them. You can also access thousands of other at-home, equipment-free workout routines if this one doesn’t suit your fancy.

Let’s get active, ladies and gentlemen! We’ve never had more time than we do now.
