MONDAY MOTIVATION: 5 Simple Exercises in 10 Minutes

For those of you who claim you don't have time to workout, this one is for you. We all get busy and sometimes it feels like you don't even have time to take a bathroom break, let alone workout.  BUT, with some prioritization and a few sacrifices, we can all find the time to squeeze in some exercises when it comes to keeping us healthy.  Try getting up 10 minutes earlier in the morning, or find 10 minutes during your workday, or 10 minutes right before you go to bed to give this short yet challenging workout a try.

This workout is designed with the "Kid in You" in mind.  Do this workout from 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 minute of each of the exercises that will make you feel like a kid again (well at least most of them!).  The whole thing will be 15 minutes long, so repeat it 1-2 more times to get in a good sweat and most of all HAVE FUN!

5 minute circuit:

  • 0-1:00 - Jump Rope
  • 1:00 - 2:00 Hopscotch (either set up a real one or just imagine it & go back and forth)

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Indoor Conditioning for Runners

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Indoor Conditioning for Runners

The winter has arrived folks, which means if you are a runner, things get a little trickier with your workouts.  But don't think about it as a setback.  Instead, think about it as an opportunity to work on cross training and strengthening the muscles that make you the awesome runner you are!  

Here is a great Strengthening routine that you can work into your weekly schedule.  Be sure to get in a good warm-up prior to starting and do some active stretches as well.

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Strength, Cardio, Core

WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Strength, Cardio, Core

This workout will take you through a strength exercise for the whole body, then a cardio exercise to get your heart rate up, and then core exercise to strengthen and stabilize.  The suggested time is 40 seconds on and 20 seconds off, with a full minute rest between circuits which will take you to a 20 minute workout.  Double it and you are looking at a full hard core 40 minute workout.  Or if 40 seconds is too long for you, take it down to 30 seconds on and 15 off.
