It’s the first of the month! And you know what that means, a new workout challenge!
Colder weather is rolling in and being the warm weather, summer sunshine girl that I am, this time of year always starts to get me down. Staying on top of my exercise routine keeps the endorphins up!
On top of the chilly weather, we are all trapped in our homes just a little extra this year.
I thought a “No Equipment, At Home Workout” would be pretty appropriate! Turns out last month’s workout required only a cooler, so if you missed it and are looking for another at home workout go check it out. September Workout Challenge

This workout is a 5 exercise workout where you will aim to do it 3x through and rest for 30 seconds after each cycle.
Many of the moves are multi-movement exercises to engage several muscles at one time and keep your heart rate up while building overall strength. Since this is a great overall body strength workout, you can do it 2 times a week for the entire month.
Adjust the Intensity to Meet Your Fitness Level
When it comes to exercises where you don’t have or aren’t using weights but want to increase the intensity, simply add more repetitions. For the burpees, you could add 5 more to increase the intensity. For the triceps dips, do 15 to 20 rather than just the 12.
On the other hand, if you find the exercises to be challenging and you are unable to perform the last 3 reps with perfect form, then back off the number of reps. Do only 3 burpees, or 9 triceps dips. If you do this workout two times a week for the month, you should be able to increase your reps by the end of the second week.
