No matter who you are, you won’t always have the time – or desire – to spend hours in the gym. The good news is, you don’t have to. That’s right, you don’t have to spend hours in the gym to get in a good, effective workout.
Personally, I love going to the gym. It’s my ‘me time.’ As a stay-at-home mom, it’s also a good excuse to get out of the house. But, sometimes it just can’t happen.
If there’s even the slightest wrinkle in our day it can throw my schedule off and the small window I have to get to the gym closes fast.
But there’s nothing like the feeling after a great workout so…I have a contingency plan.
When I don’t have time – or energy – to go to the gym I like to incorporate short circuit workouts that will get my heart rate up to burn fat and maintain lean muscle.
If you need a short, effective workout you can do almost anywhere (the gym included) with minimal equipment check out my favorite 20-minute total body workout I love below. The workout may look easy on paper but once you get going you’ll QUICKLY see why 20 minutes is more than enough.
But, if you want more of a challenge check out the 4-week Back on Track workout plan I love.
