A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog post about the many ways MOVING helps your body.
It helps your body get rid of waste, rev up your immune system, improve digestion, maintain a healthy body weight, boost energy, build healthy bones and strong muscles, it’s good for your heart, and so much more!
That’s why it’s SO IMPORTANT to make time for workouts. And it takes a LOT less time than you might think.
Want some proof? I’ve got a FANTASTIC time-crunch workout for you that covers all the bases. It’s one of my personal faves for when my schedule is jammed.
It’s tempting to shrug off your workout when time is tight ... but I don’t recommend that, for one simple reason.
It’s so much easier to STAY on track then it is to GET BACK on track!
This workout will give you a heart-pumping, muscle-strengthening workout that will leave you feeling energized.
One of the reasons it’s so effective and efficient is that it alternates cardio activities with strength exercises, giving you the best of both worlds. And it’s low-impact, so it’s great for most fitness levels!
Do a 3-5 minute warm-up (brisk walking, leg swings, arm swings, etc.) and then:
Then do this circuit As Many Rouds As Possible (AMRAP) in 15-20 minutes :
15 squats (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_VtOYc6j5c)
10 push-ups (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pkjOk0EiAk)
10 walking lunges (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlhojghkaQ0)
10 bench dips (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyyiwpF0V8A)
20 glute bridges (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv6_ak2_hLI)
30 sec - 1-min plank hold (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZxrs3C209k)
5 minutes easy cardio activity cool-down (walking, biking), then stretch out any tight muscles.
You’ll be glad you did this once completed!
