This was the first vlog I ever did and it’s hilariously bad. I will eventually replace it, but I’ll keep it here for now for lols sake.
Please excuse me, I was a bit nervous!
Also, as promised, here’s the link to the workout:
The 480 Workout. (Some of the exercises are explained in the comment section, so be sure to read it.)
Yes, that’s 480 as in 480 reps. It took me 25:23 to complete it. I can always tell how intense a workout is by how sweaty and matted my neck hair is.
And before any smart asses can comment, no, there is no footage of said naked working out! I would also like to clarify that I was not completely naked, as I was wearing shoes. I get blisters if I don’t.
It might sound weird, but I’m willing to bet there are a fair amount of people who workout naked or in underwear at home. I mean, why dirty more clothes if you don’t have to?
So, hypothetically speaking, let’s say you did want to workout naked. What would be some considerations?
- To plyo or not? This is a personal decision. I’ve done naked burpees, but uuh, some people might not want certain body parts bouncing around.
- Flooring. Rug burn, ya’ll.
- Privacy. Shut the door. Close the curtains. It’s about to get weird.
Am I missing anything? Lemme know.
And in honor of doing stuff naked ’cause we’re adults and we can do what we want…here’s a home workout to try. Clothing optional…
- Goblet squats – 15
- Pull-ups (use band assistance if necessary) – 5
- Reverse lunge – 10 per leg
- Shoulder press – 10
- Plank – 20 seconds
- Single-arm DB row – 10 per arm
Perform the exercises circuit style and repeat 3-4 times.
I like this as a clothing optional workout because it’s not very bouncy and you don’t have to lie on the floor. Of course, you could just keep your clothes on. Whatever floats your boat. The hardest part of the workout will be the pull-ups, and if that’s something you need to scale, you can use bands, chair assistance, or do negatives. Try it out and let me know what you think!
the wine bit made me laugh b/c my cooking partner and i recently did a video under the influence. i’m prob gonna post it on guru rabbit. and despite also having the convenience of small boobs, i think i’d feel odd exercising naked. i like to at least have undies on. although dancing naked would be okay, so if the dance is rigorous enough…
post that shit, woman!
Allie, between the wine and the workouts, I can tell that you are a woman after my own heart. I agree with your mom’s coworker – you should do more of these! (Although I bet the coworker is now all, “I didn’t know she was going to talk about being naked!”)
As far as working out naked, I have to admit that I have never actually even thought about it. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because of my Mormon upbringing? My shyness runs swift and deep, I suppose.
why, thank you! the wine helps to take the edge off. and as i told a commenter on Google+, working out naked isn’t for everyone. i’d imagine it’d be hard for men to to do it because of their um, appendages. the whole thing is definitely…weird. lol.
Lol I find that so funny , ” chesticles” .. Anywho I have done yoga naked a few times. How ever I wear a 32c so I can’t do any jumping xD
I workout naked all the time at home. Unless it is a rigorous cardio workout then I wear tight underwear to keep my junk together. I love it- it always feels great. Thanks for the post!
Just watched you’re video. I liked it because it wasn’t weird or creepy.
You’re not the only one. I do a cardio/ab workout at home naked. It helps to look at your target area. Talk about motivation!!
Thanks for the video!
Anyone else out there want to talk about this? It reassures me to see that I’m not the only one like Allie.
If it is warm then absolutely naked workouts are great!! Stretching, tread mill whatever. If you are in your own home and the blinds are closed then it’s no big deal. Much more comfortable and saves on laundry…
