Memorial Day was the un-official start of summer here in the U.S. The ridiculous humidity on the East coast let us know that Spring this year is a dream; it’s just not going to happen! I’m already hearing the excuses between me and my friends right now:
- It’s too hot to go to the gym
- I can’t with this heat
- Set me down in front of an A/C; I can’t do anything else
- It’s too hot to walk
- Wake me up when this heat is gone
You know what I’m talking about. 😀 I’m sure there are even more excuses to add to the list.
Since the heat and humidity are wilting so many of us already, here’s a FFF tip — put that A/C on, get your water and bust your moves at home. For those of us who have not been working out consistently or might be having trouble getting started, here’s a little beginner’s list of exercises that can be done without having to go to the gym, without having to be bothered about the heat outside. Do not be fooled, the plan might look easy but it’s challenging enough if you do it right. Adding hand and leg weights really ups the ante with this plan.
Don’t let the summer heat wilt your enthusiasm! Just get moving! Here’s a little more encouragement to get you started today.
