Does the dark, cloudy weather make you feel gloomy? Finding it challenging to work out during heavy downpours?
It’s time to take your fitness into your own hands, even during the rains. Try these techniques to keep your fitness routines going, when the weather tempts you to skip your workouts.
Exercise at home
If you can’t workout outside, then why not ‘work-in’? Some exercises you can do at home –
- Spot jogging
- Rope skipping
You can also follow YouTube videos from credible fitness gurus to workout at home.
Hit the gym
Stay indoors at the gym and carry your cardio and strength training activities for weight management and muscle building. Exercise boosts your mood during the murky weather and helps you shed the kilos you gain by eating all those fried pakodas!
Do the household chores
An active lifestyle includes getting up and about at home doing household tasks. Cook your family’s favourite recipes, do the laundry, do the dishes, and clean the house. You can also take up an indoor hobby like gardening and painting.
Throw a house party
Can’t go out? Throw a party so everyone can dance and get moving even during the monsoons. Keep indoor games and puzzles ready for the kids and adults to enjoy together. You can also play some Zumba videos and have everyone do a mini workout at home.
Go for a run
When it stops raining or when there’s just a drizzle, you can go for a quick run in your building compound or a park nearby. Don’t forget to wear rain-proof running shoes and windcheater to stay on track in this weather.
So, don’t let the rains stop you from being fit and healthy this season. There are plenty of ways to stay active, and not let rains disrupt your fitness journey.
