Women's Health Supplements and Winter Fitness

Posted

There is no daylight when your alarm clock goes off in the morning and daylight is gone by the time you get home from work. It’s cold outside and either snowing or raining, keeping you from doing the activities you used to do in the summer and fall.

And to think it’s not even Christmas yet and we have months of winter to endure still.

About the only thing you really feel like doing is flopping on the couch, flipping on Netflix and binge a few television shows while scarfing down gingerbread cookies your mom sent you for the holidays.

Of course, that isn't going to keep you in shape or very happy for that matter. What you need to do is get your exercise on.

Ameriden, your source for women’s health supplements, offers these awesome ways you can get your fill of exercise in the winter.

Hit The Wall

An indoor rock climbing wall is a great way to get a non-traditional cardio workout. Climbing a rock wall is not all about physical prowess, you need to use your brain as well to figure out the best way to reach the top.

Scaling an indoor wall increases your heart rate and can burn as many as 600 calories an hour. Not only does this exercise work your arms, but you will also be getting a good leg workout as well. And once you reach the top, you reserve the right to brag about it.

Jabs and Uppercuts

Make like Rocky and go to a boxing class. A few rounds in the ring once or twice a week will leave you exhausted, but fit and trim no less. You will do moves that keep your stamina up and tone your muscles.

When it comes to boxing, technique is more important than experience, so even if you have never stepped into a ring, it’s still fine to be a rookie.

Go Ahead And Jump

Unleash the kid trapped inside of you by hopping on the nearest trampoline. This bouncy paradise is a fitness craze we hope sticks around for a long time. Just six minutes on a trampoline is the equivalent of running a mile.

And thanks to the fact a trampoline allows a low-impact workout, you protect your joints as you are jumping high up in the air and coming crashing down.

Dodgeball

Some of you might have not-so-fond memories of this game going back to your school days. But when you play with a group of friends, it is fun and a great way to get a workout in the winter.

The game of dodgeball delivers an amazing cardio workout, moving in all directions as you are throwing and ducking balls. After a few games, you will be worn out and probably a bit sore as well.

Be Like Mike

OK, Lebron James is the current king of the hardwood court, but we just couldn't come up with a cool catchphrase. Anyway, gather up a few friends for some three-on-three action. If you can find more players, a full-court game will improve your endurance and show others how well you can take the ball to the hoop.

Lace Up

Ice skating isn't just for kids. If it is too cold to skate outside, head to your local indoor rink. In addition to being super fun, ice skating is great for your core, legs and butt. It also helps with balance and coordination.

Even at a moderate pace, ice skating will burn about 500 calories an hour. If you fo full hockey mode, you can expect to burn more.

Do Laps

Dig out the swimsuit you packed away in the fall and head out for a swim. If you are doing laps in the winter, you maintain that swimsuit body and look good all year long.

Swimming is a low-impact activity that lets you workout without muscle strain and is easy on the joints. In addition, swimming is just as effective as yoga in improving breathing techniques.

Complete The Cycle

Riding a bike in the winter while scraping the ice off your face isn't appealing, but an indoor cycling class will do just fine.
