Life can be a rush, with little time to smell the roses, let alone fit in a workout. News flash: Spring has sprung and summertime will be here before we know it.
I know the struggle it can be to find time to train when you have a busy and ever-changing schedule, and I have spent a lot of time working out at home. I get it – it takes time to wake up, get dressed, pack your things and drive to the gym – and every minute really does count.
So this week I have a workout that you can do at home, with no equipment, that targets your core and upper body with a hint of cardio. You don’t need hours at the gym to get the job done. You just need to focus and give it all you have got, even if it’s just 30 minutes or less.
Complete 20 repetitions of each exercise:
Once you have finished 20 repetitions of all 12 exercises, rest and pat yourself on the back. Beginners can aim for one to two rounds of these exercises and advanced should aim for three to five rounds. I really love this workout, because it burns fat and tones muscle all at the same time.
Remember, there is always a way to make time if you really want it. Intensity trumps duration of a workout any day, so get intense and get fit.
