Popiscle Stick Work-Out

I was looking for new ideas for quick workouts that would change up my routine and are feasible to squeeze into my day = no excuses. Most of these exercises  do not include weights, again, no excuses LOL.

I just used a mason jar, sharpie, and a tin can (for my “done/finished” pile). I found some ideas on the internet and made up some of my own:

  • Crunches – 20, 30, 40
  • Push-Ups – 10, 15, 20
  • Planks – 30sec, 45sec, 60sec
  • Scissor Kicks – 20, 40
  • Calf Raises – 20, 40
  • Russian Twists – 20, 30
  • Should Tap Press – 10, 20
  • Inclined Push-Ups – 10, 15
  • Declined Push-Ups – 10, 15
  • High-to-Tricep Plank – 15, 30
  • Lunges – 20, 30, 40
  • Skaters – 20, 30
  • Calf Raises – 20, 40
  • Mountain Climbers – 20, 30 40
  • Fire Hydrants – 20, 30
  • Donkey Kicks – 15, 25
  • Lunge Kicks – 20, 30
  • Squats – 20, 30
  • Bridge Lifts – 20, 30, 40
  • Chataranga – 10
  • Plank Hip Touches – 15, 30
  • Triangle Leg Raises – 10, 20
  • Jumping Jacks – 25, 50
  • High Knees – 20sec, 30sec
  • Tricep Dips – 10, 20

I also made a Cardio Jar as well:

  • Dealer’s Choice – 20mins, 30mins, 40mins
  • Jog – 1, 2 miles; 20mins
  • Hills – 20mins, 30mins; 4 miles
  • Speed Walk – 20mins, 30mins, 40mins
  • Incline Walk – 30mins, 40mins
  • Jog 1 mile + Walk 1 mile
  • Cycle – 20mins, 30mins; 2mins base pace + 1 min standing

So far, I definitely use the strength portion of this work out every day no matter how pressed for time I am. And then, when I have more time, I add the cardio portion. 

Hope this gives you some new ideas for workouts expression with the New Year around the corner.
