This Alphabet Workout Will Help You Beat Workout Boredom
Use this Alphabet Workout to start your day with the right foot! Or try it whenever your current workout gets you bored.
You don’t need fancy workout plans “designed by professional athletes” that cost you hundreds of dollars. Forget about expensive fitness gears that “help you cut corners” and reach your goals in no time.
If you want to get in shape, you don’t need any of these. All you need is a strong, healthy and motivated mindset.
Just pick a workout and start doing it every day. Change it from time to time to avoid boredom, and that’s it. It’s simple!
Fitness should be simple: eat clean, be active and think positive. This is fitness, not what you see in those TV ads where a super-fit women uses 10 different machines and gears to “activate” some muscles you don’t even know you have.
So why not keeping your workout simple too?
All you have to do for the Alphabet Workout is to spell something, such as your name maybe. And for each letter, do the exercise assigned. It’s that simple!
There are 8 simple exercises that don’t require any equipment. You can do them everywhere; in your living room, in the park, or even at the gym.
We propose 3 kinds of the Alphabet Workout, but you can easily make your own if you don’t like them. Here are our favorites:
1. Spell Your Name Workout
Just spell your name and do the exercise assigned to each letter. And if your name is Joe, or Tim, or Kate, and the exercises are too easy, feel free to add your middle name too (and your last name if necessary).
For example, of your name would be JANE DOE, your alphabet workout is:
J – 10 Push Ups;
A – 30 Jumping Jacks;
N – 10 Lunges with each leg;
E – Plank for 20 seconds;
D – 25 Squats;
O – Run in place with high knees for 40 seconds;
E – Plank for 20 seconds.
If this is too easy, do 2 or 3 more sets.
2. Spell Today’s Name Workout
This Alphabet Workout is great if you want to do a different workout each day. Spell today’s name and that’s your workout.
For example if today is MONDAY, do the exercises assigned to each letter. This way, every day of the week will come with a totally different workout.
3. Spell Your Birthday Workout
Again, just as you did for the previous two workouts, here you’d have to spell your birthday, like NOVEMBER FOURTEEN. And for each letter, do the exercise assigned.
As you can see, this is the easiest way to mix up your workout whenever you feel you need to. And to spice up the things a little try to do the exercises without rest in between.
