New Year’s Day Bodyweight Workout

You’re cooped up indoors, your favorite Boston health club is closed, and you’re just itching to get in some physical activity. But how?

  • Glute Bridge – 10-15 reps
  • Pushups (on the floor, or at an incline with hands on a counter) – as many as you can do in good form
  • Bodyweight Squat – 10-15 reps. Lower for a count of three on each repetition and push back up quickly.
  • Plank – As many reps as you can do (up to 10), holding each rep for 5 seconds.

Repeat that series as many times as you can in 10 minutes.

If you still have more energy to burn, throw in 30 seconds of jumping jacks for 3-4 sets.
