15 Minute Total Body Workout

So, as promised in my last article, here is a 15 minute body weight, do anywhere workout! If you want to start off slower, shoot for ten minutes. Do 10 reps of each exercise and see how many sets you can get in during the allotted time. As you get better at it, push for a longer time, or more reps of each exercise!!

1. Body Weight Squat

How to do it: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower your body as far as you can by pushing your hips back and bending your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Pause, and slowly stand back up.

2. Judo Push-up

How to do it: Begin in a pushup position but move your feet hip-width apart and forward, and raise your hips so your body almost forms an upside-down V. Lower the front of your body until your chin nears the floor. Then lower your hips as you raise your head and shoulders toward the ceiling. Now reverse the movement and return to the starting position.

3. Sprinter Sit-up

How to do it: Lie on your back with your legs straight and arms at your sides, keeping your elbows bent at 90 degrees. As you sit up, twist your upper body to the left and bring your left knee toward your right elbow while you swing your left arm back. Lower your body to the starting position, and repeat to your right. That’s 1 rep.

Good luck and remember this is just a general outline of how you can fit a full body workout into your hectic schedule. Feel free to switch up exercises, increase reps and time, or add extra exercises in!! Do what feels good for you, the important thing is that you get up, get out and DO IT!!!!

Much love,
