The kids are back in school, and sports are underway. Adjusting to the new schedules, parents often have difficulty juggling work, school, self, and family. And when there just isn't room for everything, too often parents sacrifice doing something for themselves.
My Solution: Get creative with your waiting time.
The next time you drop your kid off at practice, or if you are waiting to pick them up, utilize that time to get a quick 20- minute #workout.
All workouts must begin with a proper dynamic warm-up. This warm-up alone will help improve movement and will get you sweating from the get-go.
Perform 5 reps of each of the following exercises:
Heat to Butt w/Lean
I-Leg Hip #Lifts
Lunge to #Hamstring
After you perform the dynamic warm-up above, it is time to take it up a notch with the fat-blasting intervals. This is your cardio fix. This interval-training workout utilizes high-intensity #bodyweight exercises to get your heart rate up, burn calories, and charge up your metabolism. Do these three moves back to back, completing as many reps as possible in the time prescribed. Rest one minute and then repeat. During week one, do each move for 20 seconds and complete four intervals. In week two perform five intervals of 30 seconds each. In week three do six intervals of 40 seconds each.
Good luck and stick with it! And remember, little things add up, so this is a great way to work on your overall fitness.
