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!
