[tps_header]What if you don’t have an hour to do a workout? Should you just skip it? NO! You can get a quick, effective 20-30 minute workout by keeping the intensity high. Multi-muscle moves and cardio intervals will keep your energy moving through the whole workout. You can rest when you are finished.[/tps_header]
Warm Up- Begin with 2-3 minutes of brisk walking, marching in place or moving through a couple sun salutations. The purpose of this warm up is to get your heart rate up and your muscles warm, so keep it up tempo.
1. Squat-Row- Loop a band around a door handle, a post, or another sturdy, fixed object. Stand with feet shoulder distance apart. Keeping your weight in your heels, squat down, arms extended forward. When you stand, pull your arms back, hands by your ribs. Squeeze your glutes and your shoulder blades. Repeat 15-20 times.
2. Push Ups– From a plank position, bend your elbows, then keeping your abs drawn in, push your body back up to plank. You can do these from your toes or knees, but remember to keep your abs drawn in the entire time and to keep your eyes looking just in front of your hands. Do 15 Push Ups.
3. Jumping Jacks— Jump legs and arms out to the side and then jump back into center. Do 30 Jumping Jacks.
REPEAT 1, 2, and 3 twice more in a circuit.
