Do you have 1 min…or 14?

Category > Fitness

For the days that you haven’t got the time to get to the gym, don’t forgo your training, just modify it from a rep session to a time challenge. You’ll be done in no time and feel amazing to have squeezed this in (+it will likely boost your energy levels to get through the rest of your busy day).

Complete 1 minute of each exercise and take 10 seconds to prepare for the next. For the exercises with an asterix next to it, use a set of weights if you have them (I usually use between 5 – 8 lbs). If you don’t have a pair, invest in them…it’s beyond worth it & shouldn’t cost you more than $20 for a set.

Record the number of reps you did for each exercise to track your progress.

  1. Jump Rope
  2. Squats*
  3. Jumping Jacks
  4. Push-ups
  5. Shoulder Press*
  6. Mountain Climbers
  7. Deadlifts*
  8. Speed Squats
  9. Plank
  10. Tricep Extensions*
  11. Heels to Heaven (one of my favourite lower ab exercises)
  12. Alternating or Walking Lunges*
  13. Bicycle Crunches
  14. Bicep Curls*

Just wanted to say thanks for posting this. I just began working out and these have been a great starting point for me. It's actually not as easy as it looks!
