Ok, I get it. It’s cold outside (yes, even here in L.A. it is freezing!). We’re coming off the holidays and you feel lethargic (and perhaps guilty) as all get-out. Working out may be the furthest thing from your mind as you use every last speck of mental energy to think about going back to work on Monday (ugh).
But alas, my fit friends, there is a way. A way that only takes 20 minutes, is guaranteed to get you sweating, and is a full-body, equipment-free workout that will help you start feeling the burn in 2015.
Even if you didn’t set a fitness-related resolution this year, there’s no excuse to NOT try this short, fun, high-energy workout in the comfort of your own home – no cold weather gear required:
I know I know, there’s a lot of text to look at – but worry not! All you need is the timer on your phone or watch and some grit and determination, and you’re ready to rock it. Here’s the details:
0:00-1:00 – JUMPING JACKS
1:00-4:00 – 10 PUSHUPS EVERY 30 SECONDS (the faster you go, the more rest you get)
7:00-8:00 – PLANK (any format)
11:00-12:00 – BREATHER (just rest)
15:00-18:00 – 90 SECONDS BURPEES / 30 SECONDS WALL SIT (x2)
18:00-19:00 – SIDE PLANK (30 SECONDS EACH SIDE)
19:00-20:00 – STRETCH & HYDRATE
Let me know if you give this one a try – and which portion of the workout you think is the toughest!
