We’ve all got life responsibilities we need to take care of and sometimes making it to the gym for an hour-long workout is not possible.
Luckily, there are creative ways in which we can get our exercise in without having to spend too much time.
Perform these exercises in a circuit fashion. Do them all one after the other and then take a one to two-minute break. This will be one round. Repeat for three total rounds.
1. Jump Squats
Focus on reaching proper depth on the squat portion and forcefully jump as high as you can. Repeat for 10 repetitions.
2. Push Ups
Drop to the floor and do a set of 10 push ups with a stance that is comfortable for your shoulders. If regular push-ups are too difficult, you can do them with your knees on the ground.
3. Bicep Curl to a Shoulder Press
With a pair of light dumbbells to your sides, keep your back straight and curl both dumbbells up while keeping your elbows stationary. As you reach the top position of the curl, use the momentum to clean the dumbbells to shoulder level and perform a shoulder press. Then, lower the dumbbells back to hip level for the next curl repetition.
Repeat the sequence for 10-20 repetitions, depending on how heavy your dumbbells are.
