Whether you’re living that college dorm room lifestyle or you’re cozying up in a three-bedroom apartment in a cramped city, no one wants to be known as the noisy neighbor. And no, I’m not talking about your roommate’s late-night booty call that the paper thin walls make far too explicit. (God bless noise-canceling headphones, amirite?) Even armed with a list of workouts you can do in your apartment, no one wants to be the one causing a huge commotion right above the neighbors’ homes.
On those late nights when you’re clocking extra office hours that make you miss your SoulCycle sesh, it’s frustrating to feel like you can’t make time for the stress release you so desperately want. On those days (and on the ones where you just don’t have it in you to hit the gym or make a class), it forces you to take your cardio circuit to your small studio space. Instead of dreading the inevitable angry knock from your less-than-pleased elderly neighbor after your fifth burpee, try these cardio moves you can do quietly in your apartment without your neighbors hating you forever on for size.
No one will know you’re home that is, of course, unless the one getting that booty call then I can’t help you, fam.
Does anyone else pretend they’re in when they’re curtsying it up in this lunge variation?
Nah, just me? OK.
Anyway, this killer cardio-infused lunge targets your glute medius (the muscle that helps pull your legs away from the midline of your body), while strengthening your abductors and adductors all without making a single sound!
Mountain climbers are basically like running planks enticing, I know.
But even though they technically involve running, your neighbor won’t be able to hear a thing that is, if you really engage your core and stay light on your feet.
All that ab engagement is killer for gaining optimal core control, and ideal for being the best neighbor out there.
