Happy hump day, lovelies!
With another Workout Wednesday upon us, I’m sharing a silent workout for you to do anywhere. Literally anywhere.
This workout is a reader request. The request had two parts:
- She’s moving into a second floor apartment with a newborn baby downstairs (uh oh), so the workout can’t have jumping or any movement that makes too much noise.
- She doesn’t have a ton of equipment, so it should be a bodyweight only.
At first, I was stumped. Normally, when I write a “silent” workout, it will incorporate heavy weights and movements like the squat and press. Now that those movements are off limits, I had to find other ways to maximize the tension on your muscles.
Why a bodyweight silent workout
Don’t get me wrong. I love bodyweight workouts. Bodyweight training is great for anyone from beginner to advanced. It improves relative strength, teaches your body to move efficiently, and reduces the likelihood of injury. This is why I suggest incorporating bodyweight training into your routine, regardless of your goals.
When you add bodyweight training into a workout with no jumping, you get a workout that is perfect for anyone, even if you are recovering from an injury.
You’ll burn fat, get stronger, and start to see muscle definition if you incorporate this workout into your routine once or twice per week.
Today’s workout will be performed in a circuit style and targets your whole body. You will do each exercise for 50 seconds, with 10 seconds rest.
For a full body burn, go through the silent workout twice. You could also add a round of cardio movements in between the strength exercises to make the workout longer. Mountain climbers or sun salutations are great bodyweight options.
Let me know if you try it! So far, I’m hearing it leaves ya super sweaty!
What’s your workout request?!
