At Home Workouts
Everyone is busy these days with tons of commitments and life pulling us in every direction. However, I feel confident that everyone has 15-30 free minutes a day to just move. Not only are you helping yourself feel better RIGHT now, but you are setting the foundation for overall health for years to come. Check out these simple, short and EFFECTIVE at home workouts that take no more than 30 minutes out of your day.
Every minute on the minute for 5 rounds (25 minutes)-
4. Russian Twists
5. Air Squats
*Set a running clock and switch movements at the top of each minute. You should aim to complete the same number of repetitions of each movement each round. Move for the entire minute! If you need rest, add a 6th minute that is purely a resting minute.
Tabata x 3
*A Tabata is an interval style workout that follows a particular timing scheme. For this workout, the interval will be 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 sets (4 total minutes for each Tabata). You will rest 2 minutes between each Tabata.
Tabata 1- Squat Jumps (modify these to air squats if you are unable to jump at this time)
Rest 2 minutes
Tabata 2- Burpees (modify these to burpees with no push-up or burpees to a bench)
Rest 2 Minutes
Tabata 3- Sit-ups (modify to crunches)
Down the Ladder
*For this workout you want to complete all the repetitions as quickly as possible. First do 50 jumping jacks, 50 air squats, the 50 sit-ups. Then complete 40 reps of each exercise, then 30, and so on. Rest as needed during the work, but remember you are racing against the clock! Don't be afraid to get your heart rate up!
**Always remember to check with a doctor before beginning any new fitness or nutrition routine. Always ere on the side of caution when performing high intensity exercises and focus on technique before increasing intensity.
