Do you want to get in shape, but have trouble finding the time to get those workouts in? If so, you are not alone! Workouts don’t have to take up a lot of your time. The most important thing is to get up and get moving.
Here is an easy workout to get you moving – and the best part is it’s only five minutes!
1. Warm Up
For a simple warm up, do 30 seconds of jumping jacks and another 30 seconds of jogging in place. This should get your body warmed up and ready to go!
2. Bicep Curls
For this, you’ll need a heavier set of dumb-bells and a lighter set of dumb-bells. Start with your heavier set of weights and do bicep curls for 30 seconds. Then switch to your lighter set of weights and continue this exercise for another 30 seconds.
Now it’s time to work the lower half of your body! Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, bend at your knees, get low enough that your hamstrings are parallel to the floor, and then stand back up. Remember to keep your back straight the entire time. Do these squats for one minute.
For this exercise, start lying on your stomach. Then hold yourself up using your forearms and toes, keep your back flat, and hold this position for one minute. Remember to breathe through this one!
For this exercise you’ll want to start with your feet together, then step forward with one leg into a lunging position, then step back together, and repeat on the other leg. Continue these moves for one minute.
So there you have it, a simple workout you can do in five minutes! You can even do these in the quad or in your dorm, or anywhere. Pair this with eating right and drinking lots of water, and you’ll be on your way to achieving your fitness goals in no time!
