Lack of time is one of the top excuses for missing workouts.
But it’s important to remember that something is better than nothing. It’s much better to do a short workout at your house in the 15 or 30 minutes that you do have than to forgo your exercise session all together. In fact, with your own body weight and a set of dumbbells, you can get a surprisingly good workout -
Here’s a quick dumbbell and body weight workout you can do in about 15 minutes, hits all your major muscle groups and gives you a nice combo of resistance, cardio, and core work (if you attack it with the right intensity):
1. Do 10 Split Squats each leg
2. Immediately follow the Split Squats with 12 Bent DB Rows
3. Follow the Bent DB Rows with 12 Push Ups
4. Finish the circuit with a :30 Plank hold
Rest as needed (as little as possible) between exercises and sets; repeat the entire circuit three to five times for a full body fat blasting workout.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great training week!
