Quick workouts for those with limited time.
One of the biggest excuses I have heard with regards to training is “I don’t have time.” “Work is crazy, I don’t have enough time to watch TV, let alone work out.” For people with limited time we have put together some quick workouts.
Start with your base.
Legs are extremely important. Without legs, getting around is difficult. One of our biggest inspirations, Dwayne “the rock” Johnson, trains legs twice a week.
In order to give the legs a quick workout, the two part squat is extremely efficient. Stand upright while positioning your feet slightly further than your hips. Point your toes outward and place your hands on your hips for balance. Slowly bend at your knees until you reach a 90 degree angle. Hold for 5 seconds and return to the initial position. Repeat this for 5 sets of 10 reps.
Get that sexy ass.
Quick workouts to get your butt into shape are easy to perform at home. You can easily include your upper legs and abs into these exercises to get some fat burn and a full body workout. Begin by lying on your back on the floor. Place your hands at your side, with your palms on the ground. Bend your knees and place your feet on the floor. Raise your butt slowly while contracting your core and keeping your back straight. Do this for 10 reps of 5 sets. If you want to include your legs in this exercise, when you have your hips raised in the air, extend a leg and hold for 5 seconds, alternating legs per rep.
Time for the gun show.
When looking for quick workouts, don’t forget the arms. Push ups are a great way to get that pump going in your arms and chest. If you are looking for something to do, to specifically work on your arms, try lifting and curling with a suitcase, or a water bottle.
Start off the six pack.
One of the main aims for people now days, is to get that sexy six pack. A few quick workouts to get your abs on the go is sit on the floor. Bend your knees and place your feet flat on the ground. Place your hands under your knees and lower your back until your arms are straight. Rotate your body from left to right, while touching your hands on the floor on both sides. Repeat this for 10 reps of 5 sets.
Lower onto your back and raise your legs up. Extend each leg separately while tucking the other in a a cycling motion. Continue for 1 minute. Repeat for 3 sets.
