Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: quick workouts! Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
While I usually try to get in at least 60 minutes of exercise daily, there are times when I am short on time. Thankfully there are tons of available options for quick and effective workouts. These are some of my favorites.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
I find this to be the most effective type of workout when I’m short on time. The most common format is 20 seconds on/10 seconds off. Those 10 seconds “off” never feel long enough, but it’s a great way get in a quick sweat. I also love that this style of workout can be catered to many different forms of exercise – running, cycle, walking, strength, etc. My favorite type of HIIT workouts are running and strength.
Quick Core Workout
A core workout can be super effective. This is my favorite non-stop 10 minute ab burner workout (do each move for 30 seconds)
*Side plank – right side
*Side plank – left side
*Traditional sit up
Run through each circuit 3 times and hold a plank for the remaining minute.
I love workouts that do not require any equipment. These are great, especially when traveling. Also, while bodyweight exercises might seem “easier”, they can be hard! Here’s a quick 10 minute no equipment needed cardio burn.
Do each move for 1 minute, then repeat.
