Sometimes, winter can make it make it difficult to stay interested in your workout. Snow and cold temperatures may mean you have to stay indoors and that could put you in a rut. No one likes to do the exact same thing over and over, day after day. So, we've got some great ways to help you mix it up! Use kettlebells, resistance bands, and pull-up bars in ways you've never thought of before. Celebrity trainer Jacqueline Kasen put together these exercises to heat up your winter routine and work your entire body! 1. Pull-up with Band Wrap a resistance band around the handle bar and step into it with two feet. (The tougher the resistance, the more assistance you'll have.) Pull elbows into ribcage and squeeze lats while pulling body up. Perform as many reps as possible. 2. Lateral Steps with Ankle Band Keep legs completely straight with feet hip-width apart and step laterally, maintaining the hip-width position. Open up the band with glute medius and abductors (the outside of the leg). Perform 20 reps on each side. 3. Single Leg Hamstring Slider Lay flat on back, bending both legs and keeping heels flexed. Place one slider underneath one foot. Go into a hip thruster position, engaging glutes in full hip extension, and slide a single leg out, driving heel into the slider, and then back in, until even with the other leg. Make sure glutes stay engaged the entire time without lowering hips. Perform 15 reps on each leg. 4. Curtsey Step-Ups on Bench Facing the bench so it is in a vertical position, place one foot on the front of the bench and the other foot on the ground to the side of it. Maintain a 90-degree bent leg position with the leg that is on the bench, while moving the side leg back and forth. Be sure to apply all the pressure on the stationary leg and heel to engage quads, hamstrings, and glutes. Perform 20 reps on each leg.

"Y" on the Stability Ball Lie on stomach on the stability ball, keeping legs in a bent position, and feet flat up against a wall. Grab a set of 2.5- to 5-pound dumbbells. Keep arms completely straight, holding onto the weights hanging over the ball. Lift up arms using upper and mid-back to hold in a "Y" position, holding arms high enough so that biceps are next to ears. Perform 12 reps. 6. Kettlebell Windmills Stand with feet hip-width apart in an "L" position, keeping heels even. With the leg that is pointed straight, raise the kettlebell overhead in a pressing position. Push that same hip out to the side as you look up at the kettlebell. Keep other arm palm up along the inside of the leg where the foot is pointed outward. Keep legs as straight as possible and drop down alongside the leg (making sure not to fall forward), hand reaching toward the floor, and then stand all the way back up. Perform 12 reps on each side. 7. Single Arm Military Press Stand on a resistance band underneath the arch of the foot, standing hip-width apart. Hold arms up 90 degrees and alternate pressing one arm at a time while keeping the other arm completely still. Perform 20 reps. 8. Plank Kettlebell Drag Start in a plank position, hands underneath shoulders, keeping arms straight and hips even with shoulder height, legs straight, and feet together. Hold the kettlebell underneath the chest and drag across the body with the opposite arm. For less of a balance challenge, separate feet to hip-width apart. Perform 20 reps.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
