Feel like you don’t even have 5 minutes to spare? Well, you can still get a workout in! Check out this under 5-minute workout you can do anywhere with no equipment (except for maybe a timer…but there’s an app for that, right?!)
We get it, it’s hard to squeeze a workout into your schedule. That’s why we often suggest starting off by just being generally more active throughout your day. But once you get started in a regular exercise routine, you’ll need some go-to workouts that you can do anytime, anywhere, with minimal equipment. That way there’s no excuses. And remember, SOME exercise is always better than no exercise at all!
Under 5-Minute Workout Plan:
Do the following exercise circuit in a traditional Tabata format. Each exercise should be done at a high intensity for 20 seconds, with a 10 second rest between each. Then repeat the whole circuit one more time, making sure to alternate to the other leg for the lunges.
- Single Leg Lunge with Kick (left side/right side)
- Push Ups with Step Out (can be done on toes or knees)
- Burpees (yay!)
- V-Sit with Knee Hugs (keep that core tight!)
Check out the video below for an example of this workout. As you can see, this under 5-minute workout can be adapted to your abilities. The general concept of an interval workout is for you to work as hard as YOU can in the time allotted. And hopefully after doing these types of exercises more regularly in your routine, you’ll improve and be able to do them quicker and harder!
