29 Jun Get Fit with these Quick and Effective Workouts
We all know that spending an hour, maybe two hours, working out at the gym 4-5 days a week can seem daunting. Between work, kids, family, dinners, errands, and everything else squeezed into your 24 hour day, it can become disheartening. Squeezing in a workout doesn’t have to be impossible. In fact, if you find that you just can’t squeeze in a great 1 hour workout at the gym, then try a couple of these at home workouts that are 15-20 minutes max. They’re great heart-pumping, sweat-inducing, time sensitive workouts that are perfect for you.
At-Home Workouts For You:
Everybody has 20 minutes to get a great workout in. So, try out a few of these awesome exercises that will really get your body in shape!
- Matrix Madness: This is a super easy workout, but it really targets your core. All you need is a 5-10 pound medicine ball or dumbbell and a yoga mat for comfort. With the matrix, you start on your knees in an upright position. Carefully lean back as far as possible, keeping your posture straight and correct. Hold the position for 3 seconds and then slowly work your way back into an upright position. Do 10-15 reps.
- Sexy Shoulders: Summer time consists of dresses, tanks, bathing suits, and exposed shoulders. You want to make sure your upper body looks just as good as your abs, thighs, and glutes! So, opt for a shoulder press for a fantastic workout. All you need are a pair of dumbbells! Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and bend your knees slightly (never lock your knees!). Hold the weights and then lift them up above your head. Hold the weights there for 1-2 seconds, and then bring them back to shoulder height. Do 5-10 reps.
- Triple Dip: This is an amazing workout that encompasses three separate exercises into one. Start with your squat (make sure you keep your posture upright!) and then push back up to your starting position. Next, do a forward lunge. Push up back into starting position and then curl your leg to your glutes. Do 10-15 reps.
- Squats: You really can’t get a much better workout than squats. It targets your thighs and your glutes, giving you really great summer-ready legs. Make sure your legs are hip width apart, and keep your back straight and eyes forward. Don’t compromise your posture or else you could hurt yourself. Squat down into your “imaginary chair” and then bring yourself up to full standing position.
