The 5 Minute Workout

So I met with my personal trainer on Monday and I like her.  She’s very non-judgmental and is a big fan on short, high intensity strength training workout (15 minutes or less ya’ll) which is sweet in my book.

I set the goal of walking 2x a week, yoga 2x a week and strength 2x a week.  So far, so good.  I’ve been on track and I’m glad I started small instead of trying to fit in double of  this which I would easily do and get discouraged.   Diet wise – still doing strong being sugar-free but my appetite has increased 10 fold and there are times where I feel like I could gnaw off my arm, I’m so hungry.  I’m still trying to work this out.  In the past, I have had a Breve for lunch but right now I need more so I need to up my meals a bit and still try to keep lower carb.

When we were talking she gave me the most amazing quick workout plan called The 5 Minute Workout.  It’s the perfect heart pumping quick workout that you can do when life happens and you can’t do the workout you had planned.

5 Minute Workout

The workout is super simple:

1 minute of squats

1 minute of push-ups

1 minute of squats

1 minute of tricep dips

1 minute of squats


Go as fast as you can and by the end of it you will be sweating and surprisingly sore the next day.   As you get fitter you can start adding light weights.

Did you stick to your diet this week? Did you reach your fitness goals?

    I am all for a 5 minute workout, especially during my rest days. You can usually find me at the gym 5-6x per week for an hour or two each day. What can I say, I’m obsessed!

    The past couple of weeks have been really bad on the eating side. I have done more exercising though, so I think I’m flush on the calories in/out!
