Today I wanted to share a sample of a different style of workout that I've been making.
They are short, compact, and intense, so I'm calling them "Bantam Workouts."
Realistically, some days we feel like even setting aside 20-30 minutes for a workout is an impossibility. But 5 minutes to work out? That sounds possible, right?
The next time you want to work towards your goal of exercising on a consistent basis, but you're having trouble fitting in a workout that day, try my Bantam Workout below!
You can do one round for 5 minutes, or repeat the workout 3-4 times total, resting in between rounds so that when you are working you are working hard maintaining good form.
Give it a try, I think that you'll find these workouts really pack a punch!
Time: 5 minutes
Equipment: mat; interval timer; kitchen timer set for 5 minutes; chair/bench/coffee table for dips or substitute weighted bent over rows for dips
Intervals: Intervals 30 seconds work, 15 seconds rest
Workout: Complete the circuit of 4 exercises as many times as you can in 5 minutes. Perform each exercise in the circuit for 30 seconds, rest 15 seconds before moving to the next exercise. Work this way continuously for 5 minutes.
Squat jumps or standing squats (body weight)
Push up/side plank (body weight)
Lunge jumps or reverse lunges(body weight
Dips or bent over rows (for dips use chair, for rows use your weights)
