5 YouTube Workout Videos to Follow Along With This Summer
It’s time for a sweat sesh!
Even with mass vaccination in some areas, we’re in no way nearing non-quarantine status. We’ll surely be working from home for months, even until the end of the year. This may be our unfortunate reality, but this also means having all the time to pursue passion projects, learn new skills and even follow through to resolutions at the beginning of the year.
“Work out consistently,” “drop weight” or even “live healthy” on your list? Why not start with workouts you can do at the safety of your own home? Or maybe in a funk and looking for new workouts to try for the weeks and months ahead?
Whether you’re highlighting equipment-free exercises, yoga, plank variations or your very own DIY at-home workouts, here’s a list of easy-to-follow YouTube videos to try out!
