Who else is on a serious budget right now?
I know it’s rough. I know. And I know that when it’s time to start saving some money, a gym membership is often the first thing to go, as – let’s face it – that platinum membership is not exactly as essential as a roof over your head and food on the table every day.
But going el cheapo is no reason to give up on your fitness – and there’s really no excuse to, considering the wonder that is the Interwebz. Every day, fitness fanatics are uploading genius YouTube videos, which are just sitting and waiting for you to try. For free. In your own home.
I’ve rounded up my favourite ones so you don’t go down chasing too many YouTube rabbit holes in your search for the perfect abs workout. You’re welcome.
1. Jillian Michaels
This Jillian Michaels workout video has had over four million views. It’s a complete cardio workout that requires zero equipment, which makes things ridiculously convenient if you’re working out at home.
Oh… and it’s intense. Just be ready. Jillian Michaels isn’t exactly known for kicking back and taking it easy, after all.
2. Victoria’s Secret arms
A friend of mine swears by the below video – she does it every single day. And if you’re self-conscious about your arms, you’ll probably love it too. It’s a 10-minute arm workout with Victoria’s Secret model trainer, Andrea Orbeck.
All you’ll need is some dumbbells and your arms. Be ready to cry if you haven’t lifted anything heavy in a while…
