The 5 minute workout
Working out is not a difficult thing to do. Working out with a busy schedule is an especially difficult thing to do. But what if you could get a 5 minute workout anywhere?
One of the worst things you can do is avoid exercise altogether and so enters the question: “what should I do?”
Well, doing something is better than doing nothing, and doing something you can stick to is critical.
Enter the 5 minute workout.
This is not a gimmick or a trick, it is literally a 5-minute workout that you can do in your home, that will hit all your major body parts, get you sweating, and make you feel good about having done something difficult.
So, here it is:
Exercise 1: Bodyweight Squats 1 set 1 minute
Exercise 1 is simple, stand in a position that is comfortable for you to squat and get going!
Do as many as you can do in 1-minute. Don’t worry about how low you’re squatting to start out, just see how many you can do. You can challenge yourself later!
Exercise 2: Push-ups 1 set 1 minute
Okay, I know that no one likes push-ups, I get it. Ladies, I know that you ESPECIALLY hate push-ups.
Do you want toned and sexy arms? Then drop down and let me see how many you have.
If you cannot do full length push-ups or go all the way down to the ground, THAT’S OKAY! Do push-ups from your knees and do half reps; you’ll eventually get strong enough to go full length and full range, just keep working at it!
Exercise 3: Superman 1 set 1 minute
If you don’t know what these are, they’re super simple.
Lay on your stomach with your arms stretched overhead and legs long.
From here, lift your legs and arms at the same time. Try to get the top of your thighs off the ground and your chest off the ground and then go back down. That’s one.
You should feel your back and glutes working.
Exercise 4: Windshield Wipers 1 set 1 minute
Explaining these is tricky, so here’s a quick little video to show you how they go: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0NQVBnH4Ro
These are not easy to do, but give it your best shot! You should feel these all over your abs and along your sides.
Exercise 5: Crunches 1 set 1 minute
Ending with a classic. The crunch is probably the grand daddy of all ab exercises and it is a good one!
Make sure you do it properly though: you should feel like you’re ROLLING yourself up one vertebra at a time.
This is not and should not be explosive crunches, that’s a good way to hurt your back. Be controlled and focus on ROLLING up.
This simple little workout covers all of your main body parts, is time efficient, and requires absolutely zero equipment.
No more excuses about time or space; you got this.
