This super fast workout is designed for the busy person who doesn’t have time to exercise. Most people find first thing in the morning is best for this super quick (approx 5-10 mins) workout, but you can do it anytime. The idea is to work as many muscles and burn as many calories as possible is as short a time as possible. Give it a go;
1/ Wall Squat
Put your back flat against a wall and bring your feet about a foot forward. Slide down as far as you can and hold the position totally still. Your legs should start burning. Hold position for as long as you can (45-60 seconds).
Lay on your side on the floor. Using your elbow and feet, raise up and hold position still. If this is too difficult, use the other hand on the floor to help support you. Hold for as long as you can. (approx 30 seconds each side).
3/ Press Ups
On your feet if you can, or on your knees if not. Lower your whole body, stomach and chest down towards floor and push back up. Do as many reps as you can. (approx 15-20)
4/ Front lunges
From standing, take a big step forward and bend both knees as much as possible. Push back up through the heel of your front foot. Repeat on other leg and keep alternating. (approx 20)
5/ Front Plank
Lay face down on floor. Raise your body up resting on your elbows and feet. Make sure your back is flat and hold for as long as you can. (approx 45-60 seconds).
