Rainy Day Home Workout

Thanks for stopping by Running in a Skirt! You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or subscribe by entering your e-mail address to the right!

My original idea for the blog today was to share pictures and a story from a mountain hike I wanted to do, but mother nature had other plans.  The skies opened up and the weekend was more or less a washout.

After some serious couch time Saturday, even the dogs were ready to try something different Sunday.


Reina knows how to milk that sad face.

So with the friendly “help” of Rhett, I came up with this super simple but super sweaty at home rainy day workout.


Just call him Coach Rhett-ster

It’s perfect for when you don’t want to leave the house because it requires no equipment.  I organized it in an easy to remember 30-20-10 format.   Do the routine once or repeat up to three times for a outstanding thirty minute workout.  You can rest 15-30 seconds between rounds.

It gets challenging at times (you will hate those 20 burpees) but it hits all the major body parts and really gets the heart rate up and moving!


If you are unfamiliar with any of the exercises, here are some links to what they are and how to do them.


Plie Squat

Butt Kicks

Mountain Climbers

Bicycle Crunches

Reverse Crunches



Superman Lifts

Your turn…

What did you do this weekend?

Do you have a way to get in exercise on a rainy day?

    Julie, check out Leslie Sansone Walking videos to do in side, they go from 1 mile to 5 miles and are perfect for when it rains. I love doing them even when it isn’t raining

    Hi Julie, This is a off subject. I know your a dog lover and I hope you can help to get the word out. Rusty’s Legacy in Marion NC is being forced to cement their dog holding area by the state and has been given a month to do so. They are a non-profit so they need to raise 500.00 to have this work done or they could be forced to close. There has been a gofundme account setup to raise the money. The story was in the July 18 issue of the McDowell news. If you think you might be able to help get the word out let me know and I can send you the link. Thank you.

    this weekend..rare date with wife, ran Sunday morning, took my middle child to Planes Fire and Rescue and fixed the lawnmower…exercise on a rainy day…just watch the morning weather on 13 and see what kind of window I have and take advantage of it…if it’s an all day rain, just go for it, unless I hear thunder or see lightning then it’s either go to the gym or take a rest day

        Planes Fire and Rescue…sequel to the 2013 Disney’s Planes which the child loved…

    I have a slew of DVDs that I should have done, instead of lounging with my boy all weekend. I did manage to get outside yesterday for some yard work. 🙂

      It was the perfect weekend for that!
