Exercising on a Rainy Day?

So, my plan last night, as I was laying in bed, listening to the rain, was to do my cardio today since I did a LOT of weightlifting this weekend (helped my dad install our new drier and lugged musical instruments back and forth between mine and my geek's house) and I wake up to the same sound of domesticated animals falling from the sky (not just cats and dogs but ALL of the domesticated animals!) Is there any exercises that I can do indoors that either won't strain the muscles I've already worked over the weekend (mostly arms, legs, and back, I think, based on where I'm feeling most soar) or will be good cardio?

For the record, before anyone says jump rope, there is not really that much room in the house and I don't know where my dad has hidden that thing.

Now, I know that, this being Florida, waiting two minutes would help, but I've been doing that for an hour and the only change the weather has had has been 'raining hard' and 'raining harder.'

I live in Florida too and it sucks it's been raining for a while .... but anyways DDR, lunges, squats, push ups, in a constant motion repeating will work as cardio. If you follow most things that Zuzana does on http://www.bodyrock.tv you can do almost everything in doors and I guarenttee you'll get an awesome workout.

You said no one mention jump rope...but I honestly don't own a jump rope or a DIY jump rope, so I just fake it! Haha I even double jump. Same exact workout, just less falling and slapping yourself in the leg.

I second miming jump rope. There is also prison cell pushups as an option!

listen to the tv when it explains what pam is doing differently for the sake of modifying.

I also recommend bodyrock.tv for in home no equipment exercises as distantarray had already mentioned.

you know you realized if you take out arms legs and back, all you have left is chest and abs right? :P since you can't workout your chest without arms, I guess doing as many crunches as fast as you can will do

oh a fun cardio you can do is get tennis balls and put them in long tube socks, and do poi.

then after a while you work upto fire poi =)

My running days are behind me, but unless there was a hurricane warning, i just ran in the rain. A baseball cap (worn frontwards!) will keep most of the water off your face.

LOL! I think you misunderstood my post. I don't run anymore at all (at least, not outside, I'll still do a little on treadmills) due to being old and having issues with my joints. When I did run, I didn't mind running in the rain unless it was really storming (i.e. lightning, torrential downpour). When I was a kid, my mother used to say, "You're not made out of sugar. You won't melt." I took her advice to heart!
