    Get Motivated and Stay Motivated this Fall!

    Did you know it was possible to have an exercise regimen that is almost as rigorous as the gym right at home?

    A comprehensive exercise program can be obtained by performing weight-bearing exercises and also by performing exercises on home gym equipment.

    Women with kids, school and work can especially benefit from having an at-home gym and workout regimen.  Here are some of the exercises women can perform in the winter months:

    Recommended Outdoor Exercises

    Squat Thrusts:

    1. To begin this exercise, your feet should be shoulder-width apart -- Your arms and legs should be at your sides.
    2. Squat down as far as you can by bending through the knees.
    3. Your hands should reach the floor in front of you, and your weight should be shifted onto your hands.
    4. Next, extend your legs behind you and place the body in a push-up position. Then, quickly migrate back to the squat position.
    5. After in the squat position, jump as high as you can.
    6. When in the standing position, start the entire movement over again.
    7. The exercise can be modified to add a pushup if the exercise is too easy or scaled back to a squat if the exercise is too difficult.

    Dumbbell Row:

    1. Stand with the feet shoulder-width apart -- The knees should be slightly bent.
    2. Bend your body, while keeping your back straight -- Your torso should be almost parallel to the floor.
    3. While in this position, allow the dumbbells to hang by the side of the body.
    4. In the next motion, pull the dumbbells in an upward motion while bending the elbows and squeezing the shoulder blades.
    5. Lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.

    Mountain Climber:

    1. To perform this exercise, place the body in the push up position.
    2. The hands should extend just beyond the width of the shoulders.
    3. The body should form a straight line.
    4. Raise the knee into the chest as far as you can -- Do not allow the back to round.
    5. Repeat the movement with the opposing leg -- You should alternate and switch legs in a quick fashion.

    Recommended Indoor Exercises

    Some people just cannot get motivated to go outside in the autumn. Ellipticals and treadmills are recommended for people who are often confined to the home due to the lack of motivation, time or money. Since home gym equipment is a one-time purchase, it will be available for use for the lifetime of the equipment. This saves on gym costs and further motivates women to get up, get active and get motivated.

    Women: Get Motivated to Exercise in the Fall

    Women need motivation to exercise even in the fall. No, you won’t be wearing a swimsuit in the fall unless you go somewhere tropical, but you should continue exercising for your health. Whether you exercise indoors or outdoors, you should have a workout regimen that is motivating and fun.
