I’m not a cardio fan. I’m a wimp both mentally and physically and have a ridiculously short attention span. I like weights, gadgets and toys though. To me, they are much more interesting and less tedious. I love this type of workout because it tricks me into working harder than I normally would. Plus it requires very little counting.
In 20 minutes, I was dripping sweat – so in my book, that totally counts.
Warm Up (3 sets, 10 reps each)
- Push ups
- Old school sit ups
- No weight squats
Workout (3 sets, 1 min each, no rest between exercises, 1 min rest between sets – and don’t be fooled my friends, a minute is a long time)
- Kettlebell swings
- Lunges with medicine ball/chop
- Plank (sigh….)
- Single leg squats (on my back porch step) with shoulder press (switch sides after 30 seconds)
- Speed skaters (with medicine ball)
Final Interval – Tabata (20 seconds SPRINT, 10 seconds rest, repeat for 4 minutes total)
- Mountain climbers on ground
If you’ve got 20 minutes to work out, what is your favorite?
