The 30 Minute Workout

I am sure that there are a lot of you that are reading this and  probably have said this exact sentence before.  I want to work out but just don’t have time.  I know that a lot of my clients have mentioned this  to me.  I am going to do my best to help you out with a 20-30 min. workout that can be pretty intense.

Before I give you the workout I must suggest a few things first.  I want you to understand that if you don’t have an hour a day to allocate to a daily fitness activity I would really suggest moving some things around so that you do have an hour or close to it a day for yourself.   With that being said here we go.  If you had only 30 min or less to workout here is what I would have you do or some version close to this.

I would have you do 5  or 6 different exercises.  One for every body part.  For example, pushups, sit-ups, body squats, triceps kickbacks, and maybe jump rope.  Also I would suggest going to Wal-Mart or Target and buying a Stability ball, jump rope and a resistance band.  Probably about $15-$20 total.  Although you don’t need the stability ball to do this workout it would come in very handy.  If you don’t know how to do any of the exercises I listed above let me know and I will walk you through them.  Ok now we have our 5 exercises.  Now we want to get a stopwatch or clock and set it close to where your going to perform the exercises.  Next I want you go do each exercise as long as you can for 45-60 sec if you’re in pretty good shape.  If you not in good shape the start off with 30-45 sec.  Take 15 sec in-between each exercise and then move on to the next one and repeat this process.  Once you build up your endurance you should be able to do this at least 3 times.  Make sure to stretch before and after  your  exercise.  And if your are just starting your might go see your Doctor for a physical.
