EVERYBODY could use the excuse that there’s no time to workout! Furreal! I could say I don’t have TIME to work out either. I MAKE time to workout.
Why should you make time to workout? So you can climb mountains, ride your bike, go for a strenuous hike, go for a run, play with your kids and/or grandkids and quite honestly, not grow old!
Training mostly middle-aged clients, I have seen time and again back pain, knee pain and hip pain disappear because they have not only lost weight but because they have gotten STRONG! Things that used to be a struggle for them, are now easy.
You don’t need to spend hours in the gym training to stay young! If you cannot commit to an hour, it’s ok…just get SOMETHING done!
If 30 minutes is all you have, what should you do?
It depends on your goal. If you’re trying to lose fat, lift heavy shi$! A strength session with a series of complex/multiple movements will do the trick. If you’re trying to improve cardiovascularly, or are a cardio-freak, it might look a little different, but you can switch around the work to rest ratio and use a little less weight and achieve the results you are looking for in a different, yet similar way! Or shoot for 4-8 reps with a heavy sandbag or kettle bell and set your timer for 15-20 seconds and rest for 45 or so…feel your heart rate soar!
5-8 reps of each of the following, do 6 rounds, or use a timer and work for 20 seconds and rest for 40 seconds. That’s 24 minutes, not including a warm-up or cooldown.
Sandbag thruster (squat to overhead press)
Suspension trainer pushup to knee tuck
Sandbag MAX lunge
In the end, it’s about finding time during the day to get a workout in and maximizing the time you do have by training smart and at the proper intensity!
If you only had 30 minutes to exercise, what would you do?It depends on your goal. If you’re trying to lose fat, lift heavy shi$! Let’s design a strength session and do a series of complex/multiple movements. If you’re trying to improve cardiovascularly, or are a cardio-freak, this might be a little different, but you can switch around the work to rest ratio and use a little less weight and achieve the result you are looking for in a different, yet similar way!Go to the blog to read on: http://www.mfitnessforlife.com/blog/
