A lot of people I talk to these days tell me that they don’t have enough time to get a workout. They think “there is no point because I’m not spending an hour at the gym, so I’m not going.”
What if you could get a 30-minute workout that will leave you feeling like you have completed an one-hour workout?
Here is what I did this week for a quick workout:
Planks 45 seconds- rest for 10- 5 times
Superman 15 reps hold for 5 seconds
Frontal step up superset 2 sets 15 reps
Dumbbell hinge, immediately followed by
30-second battle ropes with 20 seconds rest
Back: 2 sets 15 reps
TRX reverse grip row 15 superset with
Cable pull-down, immediately with the Rower for 30 seconds.
Chest: 2 sets 15 reps
TRX chest press
1 arm incline dumbbell press, immediately with 1-minute stepper climber.
Notes/Tips To Make This a More Effective Quick Workout
Use challenging weights. My heart rate on average was at 120 bpm. When I did my quick cardio it went up to 150 bpm. This is what we call a HIIT workout. It is designed to raise your heart rate and have a constant raised heart rate.
The benefits of a HIIT workout:
- You are in the “fat-burning” zone.
- You get better conditioning since you are not taking long rest in between sets.
- The workout goes quicker!!
- Your EPOC stays elevated throughout the day causing you to burn more fat. (EPOC stands for, excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, text me or google it to know the benefit.)
