You can get a complete workout with just your bodyweight, but because we love variety, sometimes it’s fun to include some at-home props in our bodyweight workouts.
If you look around your home, there’s plenty to work with and build a workout around – walls, chairs, couches and doorways. We’ve posted an entire workout series using a towel and a slippery floor, like hardwood. Other additions to consider when adding to your no equipment prop arsenal: milk jugs or cans of beans.
A broom can be replaced with a mop, a PVC pipe or a dowel. This series is meant to challenge you with total body movements with a little cardio built in. Repeat three times for a 30 minute workout.
This week’s playlist steals some favorites from Spotify’s New Music Tuesday Mix and includes songs to make you perk it up even if it’s 7:30 pm and you’re on-the-fence about a workout. Drake says it’s go-time.
