So You Think You Can Move: Fitness to Maintain Sanity While Moving

ImageEvery time I get ready to move, I swear that I am going to get movers. And every time I move, I think “Well..we can do this on our own!” and off to U-Haul I go.

Big mistake. I swear. I will be using movers next time. It was exhausting, frustrating and just over all a pain in the a!$. But, of course I did not waste my moving experience! No! I used it as an opportunity to get a full body workout so that I could enjoy that all important pizza break when you are done moving! I also came up with a workout to prepare for my move and thought I would share with those of you who are moving soon  or are just looking for ways to do some quad, hamstring and lower and upper back strengthening.

Warm Up:

20 Jumping Jacks

15 (each side) Dirty Dogs (on all fours, lift leg to the side like a dog doing a #1)

15 Wall Slides (Back on the wall, slide arms up and down)

15 (each side) Lunge and Twists

Workout:

15-20 Squats

15-20 Deadlifts (with or without weight)

15-20 Push Ups

Repeat 2x

15-20 Scorpions (All Fours, lift leg in the back, squeeze glutes)

15-20 (each side) Russian Twists (Seated, with out without medicine ball or weight, cross ankles, lift legs and rotate core from side to side)

15-20 (each side) Opposite Arm/Leg Supermans- (Lying on stomach, arms and legs straight, lift one arm and opposite leg off the floor, repeat)

Repeat 2x

Cooldown with a few stretches and try to fit in some meditation time. Trust me it will help get your mind right for horror that is moving on your own. Don’t get me wrong, I love my new place. But, next time, I getting movers.

Feel Fitty!

XO, Amber

  1. Seriously, I hate moving. Like more than anything in the world. Like will probably stay in my house until I die because I never want to do it again.
    Good luck on the relocation, and great workout!
