Finding time to work out can be a challenge. Luckily, this workout can be done anywhere, and it’ll help you work on your fitness goals when you’re short on time. It’s only 20 minutes long and doesn’t require weights or large amounts of space. It will actually get your heart rate up due to its mix of cardio-centered moves and body weight training positions.
If you have trouble pushing through a workout on your own, grab a friend or family member and sweat it out together. The goal is to be able to do the entire workout twice, with no breaks in between. If you’re not quite ready for that yet, try your best with breaks as needed and work your way into doing the entire routine.
The Anywhere Workout:
1 minute jumping jacks
30 second side lunges
30 second squats
1 minute jog in place
30 second burpees
30 second lunges
1 minute jump rope in place (no jump rope needed!)
30 second mountain climbers
30 second speed skaters
1 minute butt kickers
30 second lunge kicks
30 second squats
1 minute high knees
30 second switch lunges
30 second push-ups
Once through = one set (10 minutes). Repeat all the way through for a total of two sets lasting 20 minutes.
How will you incorporate this mix into your exercise schedule?
