Just because you cannot make it to the gym is less then zero excuse to skip your workout. I personally would much rather be outside then cycling, running or strength training in my basement but, if life and the weather leave me no other option, you can bet I will be sweating it out right next to the bar and pool table we have down there.

At least five other ladies agree with me, which is why we want to give you a workout round-up (insert yee-haw here) with six indoor sweat sessions that are ideal for runners, but really, anyone can do them!

Yes you can.

Just do it.

Ok, just look at them and pretend you will do one later.

Fine. Just pin it!

Check out these 6 workouts for runners the next time you need a quick sweat session while stuck inside.


Allie’s Workout

I have done a version of this many times and usually in conjunction with a bike or run. It’s a combination of strength and cardio so feel free to mix and match as time allows:


Just in case you’re wondering how to do some of these, I have provided links to perfect form videos:

Walking Plank

Bent Knee Leg Lifts < – – this video is hilarious. This girl LOVES her booty!


Lunge Knee Pull

Seated Russian Twist

Alternating Lunge Jumps

The rest should be self-explanatory but, if not, leave a comment and I will gladly help you out.

And because we all have different tastes when it comes to sweat, I’m more then happy to offer you a wide variety of workouts, courtesy of some of the most experienced runners on the internet:
