Try this quick workout on the road or when pinched for time. This is one of many do-it-yourself workouts I offer my weight loss and toning clients to run through on their own when they can’t make a trip to Taylor Carpenter’s Personal Training Studio. No equipment required, ANY PLACE, ANY TIME!
This is more cardio based if done correctly.
-Bodyweight Squats 20 reps
-Pushups 15 reps (do on knees if necessary or google incline pushup which should be easier than knee pushups)
-Burpees 10 reps
-Reverse Lunges 20 reps
-Crunches 25 reps (put your feet under something heavy like a bed to stabilize)
–Mtn Climbers 30 seconds (or more)
-Plank 30 seconds (or more)
Adjust rep counts & exercise time to suit your level. Try not to rest AT ALL or at least shoot to build yourself up to that point. You should be able to go through this 2-3 times in 20 minutes or less. Very simple but should be effective. If you have any problems with being too sore following your workouts, staying active over your breaks, and keeping those muscles working should help alleviate some of the soreness you feel the day or two after workouts to some degree.
Even in a pinch with no equipment, no personal trainer, even if you’re on the road 10 hours out of Charlotte NC theres no excuse to miss a workout!
Great to combine with an afternoon jog or some high intensity interval training!
