Do you struggle to find the time to exercise? It can be challenging to balance daily responsibilities and staying healthy, without spending an hour in the gym each day. If you want to make exercise a priority, take the time to map out exactly when you will workout. This is a strong starting point to focus your weekly calendar in line with your goals. When time is limited to 20-30 minutes, go for maximal intensity with interval training.
Reducing the amount of time you spend in the gym means performing shorter bursts of activity with greater intensity. This way you can schedule 2-3 workouts a week. To boost the efficiency of your workouts, try using compound exercises that require multiple muscle groups. These are exercises such as pushups, squats, deadlifts and lunges. You can perform a total-body routine in a short amount of time by incorporating the arms, legs and core into one exercise. These are exercises such as squats to overhead presses, deadlifts to reverse flys, lunges with biceps curls, burpees and plank variations. Begin with a 10-15 exercises, moving from one to the next, for 30-seconds to 1-minute at a time. Performing your exercises with little to no rest in between will burn more calories. See how many times you can repeat the circuit (aim for 3 x in 30-minutes). Not only will you feel the burn in a short time frame, it is a wonderful way to keep your workouts fresh and fun.
