Quick Workouts You Can Use Everyday
Here’s a quick workout that can get you looking great in no time. Please keep in mind that you should have a relatively good fitness base before attempting this workout. We’ll use a tri-plex strategy to complete it. That means there will be three parts to every circuit.
The first part will consist of an aerobic exercise, the second will be a full body movement, and the last will be a core exercise. You can do as little as three circuits and as many as ten.
Obviously, if you’re using this for the first time, you should start off slow. Each circuit will take less than five minutes to complete. Take as much time in between exercises as you need to recover if you’re feeling exhausted.
However, this is intended to be a fast paced workout, so for maximum results in a short amount of time, you should limit rest time as much as possible. Try moving from one exercise to the next without an extended rest period.
Start with a good warm up.
Then, move on to two minutes of aerobic exercise to get your body moving. You want to push yourself to reach close to eighty-five percent of your maximum heart rate.
Next, move directly to a full body exercise.
For example, squat with a front raise. Then, add an abdominal exercise. After completing the abdominal exercise, go back to the aerobic portion again and complete another two minute segment.
The next strength exercise will focus more on the upper body. An example of this would be a chest press on a stability ball. (Your focus is the chest, but you’re using your legs and core to stabilize the ball.)
Here is a quick example:
Sample Circuit #1
2 minute cardio blast (elliptical machine)
30 second full body exercise (squat with a front raise)
30 second core exercise (crunches on a stability ball)
Sample Circuit #2
2 minute cardio blast (stair master)
30 second full body exercise (chest press on a stability ball)
30 second core exercise (side twists with a resistant band)
Sample Circuit #3
2 minute cardio blast (jump rope)
30 second full body exercise (one arm row on a stability ball)
30 second core exercise (elbow plank)
