Lack of time. This happens to many of us. Jobs, family, events and appointments get in the way and before you know it, time has run out. That’s why we put together a few of our favorite quick workout drills for you to try. All these routines are body weight only and can be modified so no excuses there!
The 50 Rep Workout
Pick 5 exercises and do 50 reps each. However, you have to finish all 50 reps of one before you can move on to the other. Set a timer or look at the clock. Every time one minute has passed, you do 3 burpees. The burpees count towards the minute so the faster you do them, the more time you have to complete your set.
For example: 50 Push Ups – 50 Full Body Sit Ups – 50 squats – 50 bridges and 50 jumping jacks. Adjust exercises to your level.
Pick 5 exercises and perform 10 reps of all exercises. Once you completed that set, move on to 9 reps, 8 reps, 7 reps etcetera until you finish with 1 rep of each exercise.
For example: Pull up – Diamond Push Up – Pike Plank – Burpees – Sumo Walks
The Cardio Blaster
Perform one minute of each exercise (6 total). Take 15 seconds rest in between sets and repeat twice.
For Example: High Knees – Step Ups – Frog Lunges – Body Blast – Bear Crawl – Push Up Hops
The Beat Yourself Drill
Do a sequence of 5 exercises, 10 reps each. Count how many sets you can do in 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, take a one minute break and do it again. This time you want to beat yourself and achieve more sets.
Do three rounds total and don't start off easy. Compete against yourself and start off strong.
For example: Pike Push Ups - Skydivers - Jump Squats - Toe Touches - Lateral Jumps
We hope you enjoy these as much as we do! These drills vary from 10 to approximately 30 minutes so try to make some time, even when time is in short supply.
