5 Minute Workout

Fitting in time for a workout can be tough. Kids, work, managing a household, this list goes on and on however with this workout you no longer have any excuses.

You don’t need weights since you use your body weight. This 5 minute workout can be done anywhere and doesn’t require an expensive gym mbmership.

Equipment Needed:
Timer, Chair

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




Tricep dips

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 or do multipe rounds.

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.

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!

Now a 5-minute workout is probably something I could do!

I did horrible this week while on Brandcation. I was eating a ton and non-stop. I'll have some self-discipline to work on this week! Thanks for passing on your trainer's 5-minute exercise regimen.
