Two weeks ago I posted a quick and dirty, 15-minute workout that I challenged you to find the time to do in your busy day. Every body’s got 15 minutes to spare, right?
If you’ve followed my suggestion and done the workout three times a week, your body should be ready for a bit of a change. Change is a good as a rest when it comes to fitness!
This week, I’m upping the ante by adding 5 minutes to program. No groaning. If you do the workout three times a week, all we’re talking about is 1 measly hour of 168 hours in your week. Your health and well-being is worth at least that much.
So here’s the plan. There are 9 exercises in the circuit. Set your timer for 9 cycles of 45 s of work and 15 s of rest. After a quick warmup (light calisthenics, walking up and down the stairs in your house, jogging in place), perform all 9 exercises in a row. Each exercise is performed for 45 s with 15 s rest between exercises.
When you finish the last exercise, take a 1 minute break. No more, no less. Time it to make sure. Re-start your timer (same cycle as before) and repeat. Got an extra 10 minutes to kill? Go again!
