1. Your Quick 12-Minute HIIT Workout from Self.com

This is an absolute, and effective work out that can be done outside! If you have never done high intensity interval training (HIIT), I promise it will kick your butt and is extremely effective. The concept for a HIIT session is to work really, really hard during shorter 20-90 second bursts. The concept is the opposite of running two miles where you have to ration your energy. This specific workout is a full body one that’s perfect for a quick, healthy escape outdoors! Click here for the workout from Self.com and get ready to move!

 

2. Household Items Turned Workout Weights from Irontribe Fitness

We aren’t saying use your dog as a workout weight… but maybe use their bag of dog food? This is a time for creativity! It’s okay if you don’t have dumbbell weights, kettle-bells or resistant bands, there are other items that could be used for the time being. Take a look in your home, what could you use as a temporary workout weight? This link from Irontribe Fitness has some great ideas to get your creative juices (and blood) flowing!

 

3. Your Full Body Workout 28-Day Plan from Runners World

Creating a schedule and sticking to it is key for a home workout routine! This plan is excellent for a beginner, or a seasoned runner and gym-goer. The set schedule intensifies each week, so you can moderate and replace week 3 with week 1 if needed. If you’re looking for a challenge and are more of a “pro”, skip week 1 and start at week 2 or 3.  Click here for this workout from Runner World!
