It is one of the most frequently used excuses for not exercising. I don’t have enough time. Well, you know what? Neither do I! I just know how to optimize my time and my workout to get the most bang for my fitness buck. Here are three workouts that will help you to do the same.
Workout #1 is perfect for runners. Grab a couple dumbbells, head to the treadmill and get ready to go.
Workout #2 is an all-machine circuit. Machines get a bad rap sometimes in this era of functional fitness, and it is true that body weight, functional exercise has multiple benefits. But there is a time and place for machines. They are great for beginners, for focusing on strength building, and injury recovery. They are also perfect for a time efficient and effective workout that will get you in and out of the gym in about 30 minutes.
Finally, the Seven Minute Workout is a high intensity, fast workout that you can do at the gym or at home. It is based on an article in the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health and Fitness Journal that states that 12 high intensity exercises, combined with very short breaks, using only your body weight and a chair fulfills the latest mandates for high intensity effort.
I really understand that in this busy life we lead, finding the time to exercise can be difficult. But, if you make it a priority and find an effective workout that fits into your schedule, you can be successful.
