Short, Sweaty and to the Point

Spending hours at the gym everyday is not necessary to see the results you want. Don’t get me wrong, you need a couple solid strength training sessions a week, but jg push up when you are running low on time, energy, and equipment, all you need is ten minutes and your body weight. You need a quick, difficult workout to get you sweaty, increase your heart rate, and rev up your metabolism for the day. Getting in any workout, even when it is only 10-minutes, can help improve your decisions throughout the day. Maybe you will choose an apple over a donut, or you will drink more water, because making one healthy decision can help lead to other healthy decisions. As long as you have a well balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and sleep 6-9 hours a night, a couple quick workouts a week can help keep you on track when you can’t make it to the gym.

All you need to do is set your timer for 10-20 minutes (depending on how much time you have), pick 3-5 exercises and your number of repetitions, and go to work! Try to rest as little as possible because you want to get the most out of your 10-20 minutes. I created some short and sweaty workouts below for you to try out at home!
