The Blizzard Blaster In-Home Workout Circuit [Workout Plans]
So we’ve got an itty bitty blizzard situation pummeling the Northeast. Like an actual, real life, non hyperbole blizzard, as defined by the National Weather Service. And it’s impacting a whopping 29 million people. That means there’s about a 0.0% chance your gym is open and you’re actually getting there.
Lucky for you—or unlucky if you had a date set up with Netflix and a bottle of vino—we’re bringing the HEAT inside with a brand new, uber-intense, monster in-home workout plan. And it involves approximately zero shoveling, driving, or venturing into the impending polar vortex.
Unless you want to throw a little shoveling on top as a little extra bonus round. SHOVELING HIIT!
The Blizzard Blaster In-Home Workout Circuit is a beast of a routine that anyone can do—wherever you’re hunkered down—without the need for any fancy equipment, snow boots, snow blowers, cars, snowballs, or skis. Pants are optional, too.
It’s designed in supercircuit fashion and consists of 4 high tempo, non-stop circuits that use bodyweight to thrash your muscles, send your heart rate into overdrive, and unleash heavy streams of sweat. You’ll move fast, you’ll lose your breath, and it’ll burn like the roaring fire in the corner of your living room.
But suck it up, bang it out, and sweat it up and you’ll log a workout that’s likely harder than anything you’d do otherwise. Go ahead, celebrate your accomplishment with a little hot cocoa and a fuzzy blanket (it’s especially delicious with Bailey’s involved).
The Blizzard Blaster In-Home Workout Circuit
The Blizzard Blaster In-Home Workout Circuit consists of 4 micro-circuits, each of which focuses on a specific element of the body. Circuits run in sequence in this order:
- Circuit 1 — Cardio
- Circuit 2 — Upper Body
- Circuit 3 — Abs/Core
- Circuit 4 — Lower Body
Complete a total of THREE ROUNDS. Effectively, you’ll do circuits 1 → 2 → 3 → 4 (that’s 1 round) and then repeat it two more times. Do each individual circuit without rest, if possible, and rest for 1 minute in between each circuit. Take a longer breather between rounds.
GO MELT THAT SNOW DAY.
