You’re busy. And you’re busy ALL the time.
I get it. I really do!
You’ve got meetings, phone calls to make, errands to run, kids to pick up, washing to do…. The list goes on.
But I have the solution for you.
If you're short on time, then the answer is to do short bursts of exercise with high intensity. Get your heart rate up and make the most out of the short time you have.
I’ve designed 3 x workouts for all you busy bees which you can do in less than 5 minutes.
No equipment needed.
1. HIGH INTENSITY / CARDIO WORKOUT
5 x burpees with push ups
10 x star jumps
15 x squat jumps
20 x high knees on the spot
50 x mountain climbers
Rest for 1-2 mins then repeat 3-5 times
2. TABATA TIME
Tabata workouts can be done with ANY exercise – you perform the exercise for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat 8 x times (4 mins).
You’ll get the best out of this workout if you pick one exercise to do for the entire 8 x rounds.
Or you can mix it up like this:
Round 1: push ups
Round 2: squats
Round 3: push ups
Round 4: squats etc….
3. ABS AND CORE
12 x flutters
12 x caterpillar walk-outs
12 x Russian twists
12 x aeroplanes
12 x plank hold & knee to chest
Rest for 30-60 seconds and repeat 3-5 times
Remember to warm up first and stretch and cool down at the end.
Before you begin any exercise program, please see your Doctor for a medical check-up.
Enjoy the workouts!
