6 Amazing Indoor Workouts For Runners
Whether it’s due to weather or something else like a lockdown, sometimes you have to move indoors in order to workout. I personally love my Peloton workouts, but there are some other times where we need to do some effective workouts that will replace (and enhance!) running outside.
Today I am partnering up with some of the best runner bloggers out there to share our favorite indoor workouts. To kick off our series we are talking about workouts that you can do at home. I have dedicated my own workout to my love of lunges.
I love how quickly they get my heart up and how my legs involuntarily shake at the end of the workout! Plus it costs nothing to do lunges it’s a body weight exercise that does wonders for your running.
Check out the lunge workout you can do at home, it is not easy—but your quads will thank you! Remember, the stronger your quads, the stronger your running! It’s a manageable workout that will take about a half hour if you go through it 3-4 times.
Indoor Sweat Session
These exercises are excellent for building quad strength!
Do 12 reps on each leg for one round
Complete 3 Rounds
Lift Off Lunges
Side To Side Lunges
Round The world Lunges (Front, Side, Back)
I particularly love this workout because it requires no equipment. You are more than welcome to add dumbbells to the moves but they are great without them too!

Wow, nice workouts there. Of all the workouts and exercises that I love to get myself into I love running. And I guess doing some of these workouts will also blend well with my running. I will surely try some of them out.

These are so awesome! Although the lunges make me tired just by reading about them. Cassidy loves to run but is out of sorts with that, and hurt his shoulder last time he was running. I wonder if he'll love this list.
