Make the most of your workout!
The most common excuse I get for not working out is “I don’t have time… it takes 10 minutes to put on my gear, 15 minutes to drive to the gym, 45 minutes to workout, then drive back home – it’s more than an hour!”
Ok so for all you time strapped people, here it is – the (less than) 20 minute workout you can do IN YOUR PJ’s.. don’t even bother putting on your gear. You don’t even need any equipment!!! If all you do is this workout 3 times each week when you wake up in the morning, you’ll be much better off than doing nothing.
So hey, give it a go.. I know you can find 20 minutes in your day!
|1. Balance squats– hold your arms out parallel to ground – sit down onto a chair or bed but just as you hit it, stand up||15 total|
|2. Goal post Place hands on head, elbows bent out to sides. Reach opposite elbow to opposite knee||20 total (10 each side)|
