Break Up the Monotony of Winter with Alternative Workouts


With the colder weather upon us this time of year everyone finds it hard to find different ways to get in cardio especially for those who are summer lovers and do not like to be out in the cold. During the warm times of the year it is easy to go outside for a long walk, run, or bike ride but with that being more difficult this time of year what can you do in order to keep up your cardiovascular endurance? So while you can do those cardio based activites inside on a treadmill or a stationary bike boredom will strike at one point or another after several months of the same routine without changing scenary other than changing the channels on the tv while inside. While the workouts here at Black Clover Fitness are always changing; what to do for cardio work on the off training days at the club here can be difficult but there are lots of fun exciting activites to do away from the club to help break those winter cardio blues.

Some simple exercises in order to raise your heart rate during the winter time while at home can always be walking or running on the treadmill at home (if you have one) but in addition to that implementing an interval circuit of jump rope, mountain climbers, jumping jacks, burpees, and boxing. Doing all of these in 1 minute intervals 5 times will give you a great high intense 25 minute workout without the monotomy of just continuously running. In addition there are always those at home workout videos for those who like them.

However, for those who are wanting to get out and about and not be tied down to the confines of their homes there is always cross country or downhill skiing options. Downhill skiing options are limited within the area but there is plenty of places to strap on some skiis for some heart beating cross country skiing or even snowshoeing. For those with kids, taking the kids out to a sledding hill can be a great hidden workout for you as a parent. Pulling the kids back up the hill or simply running around with them is a great way to get your heart rate up. For those really competitive ones with older kids how about racing them up to the top of the hill each time. Then again if you aren't a cold weather person you can either go to a local indoor swimming pool to swim laps or even find a rock climbing wall to get a little strength and cardio.

With those options and many other options available to keep your cardio going this winter you shouldn't suffer from those winter blues!
