Woman’s ‘human hamster wheel’ workout will make you feel lazy in quarantine

Woman’s ‘human hamster wheel’ workout will make you feel
lazy in quarantine 1

Lockdown has her climbing the walls.

Pilates instructor Niki Carr, 27, who boasts nearly 31,000 Instagram followers, is staying fit sans studio by using her house as a jungle gym. The fitness instructor uses doorways, banisters and baseboards for her impressive moves — including a mesmerizing routine she dubbed the “Human Hamster Wheel.”

In the video, an overalls-clad Carr swivels her body, legs balanced on the wall, to create an impressive slow-mo somersault atop her kitchen counter in her home in London.

Chairs and couches feature as support beams for her jaw-dropping acrobatics, which she writes, “challenge your balance, strength and coordination.” Although gyms are releasing their reopening plans after the coronavirus lockdown, Carr and others are perhaps getting a little too used to their at-home routines.

“Real Housewives of New York City’s” Leah McSweeney, Kerry Washington, and Britney Spears have been sharing their yoga seshes and weight-lifting routines with fans. And for non-A-listers, there’s been an explosion of fitness apps, high-tech equipment like Peloton, and virtual classes held by blue-chip trainers that require no equipment whatsoever.

But the pandemic has brought the resurgence of retro fitness wares such as roller skates, ankle weights and the at-home workout tape. VHS kickboxing king Billy Blanks, the creator of Tae Bo, has returned to the big screen with a series called “In the Living Room With Billy Banks” to stave off quarantine weight gain.
