Sometimes you’ve just gotta crush it in a hurry!
Ever have those days when your to-do list vast exceeds the amount of time in your day?! Pretty much sums up my life for the last couple of weeks (who am I kidding? Couple of years since the kids were born!). Yesterday I found myself in this predicament but still managed 15 minutes to squeeze in a quick workout! This one’s 4 awesome exercises – bodyweight only – and designed to get you as sweaty as possible as quickly as possible. I’ve got a feeling you’re going to like this one! Here we go…
We’ll follow an AMRAP format on this one – you’ll perform 4 exercises as hard as you can for one minute each followed by one minute of rest. You’ll repeat that series 3 times total for a killer 15-minute total-body shredder!
Something active to get the juices flowing. Personally I ran up and down my stairs for about a minute but I also like jumping jacks and high knees.
Speed skater lunges
The bigger (more explosive) the lateral leaps the better; make sure you’re going down into a full lunge. Also incorporating a large arm swing side-to-side gets the upper body going!
Plank with march
Planks are awesome. Marching is awesome. Let’s just combine the two! Down in the plank position – keep your core tight and your back straight while your butt lifts one straight leg up towards the ceiling. And repeat. And repeat. And…
I was going to cap things off with some tuck jumps, but needed a little more oblique. 180 jumps are great for your legs and butt as well as your core as you have to initiate the rotating motion.
But only for one minute…
Repeat the whole series 3 times for a quick total-body at-home burner without a single piece of equipment!
What kind of workout do you need? I’ve got hundreds for you!! (Click the links to be taken to the workout pages)
At-home without equipment? Yep – here they are!
Less than 30-minutes? I can do that.
Abs? Arms? Butt? Legs? Yep, check, you bet, and of course!
