When It’s Raining or Too Hot to Run Outside, I Do These 23 Indoor Cardio Exercises

Warmer weather has inspired me to get back into running outside — every summer, I’m reminded how amazing the sun and breeze feels on my skin. But if it’s too chilly in the morning, too hot, too humid, or it’s raining, I lose all motivation and keep my workout inside instead.

My outdoor runs are usually an hour, but for these indoor workouts, 30 minutes is usually my limit. I still want to get my heart rate up and release endorphins, and these are the indoor cardio exercises I do. Many are bodyweight-only moves, but some require minimal equipment so I keep a jump rope, plyo box (or sturdy coffee table), kettlebell, wall ball, and medicine ball on hand.

I choose six exercises (three cardio and three strength) and do them for 45 seconds with a 15-second rest; five rounds gets me to 30 minutes. I prefer the fresh air, gorgeous farm roads, and time alone on my runs, but it’s good for my muscles and mind to mix things up!
