Many of our clients travel for work and pleasure and most come back weighing more than when they left. Not a good thing when you’re trying to reach a fitness goal.
As you know, I’m splitting my time between Houston and Orlando, so finding time to exercise while not having a set routine can be difficult, BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE.
I’ve actually settled into a nice little routine and have been able to shed some fat and gain some muscle in the process. And you don’t need a gym membership to do it!
1) I made a commitment to myself to exercise every morning, which means I have to wake up just 30 minutes earlier than I normally would.
2) I roll out of bed, literally! Put the dogs in the other room. Then decide on 8 different movements to do.
Yesterday I did this:
1- Squat (no weight, but fast)
2- Jumping jacks
4- Mountain climbers
5- Static Lunge (left foot forward)
6- Static Lunge (right foot forward)
7- Side Lunge for speed, to the right
8- Side lunge for speed, to the left
I used a Tabata interval timer so I was doing 15 seconds of work with 15 seconds of rest. After I completed the 8 exercises I had a 1 minute rest and recovery. Then I repeated for a total of 4 rounds, which took 20 minutes.
You could come up with ANY 8 exercises. I know you’re thinking, “What would 20 minutes possibly do for me?” Well, a hell of a lot more than NOTHING!!
Get active and get moving.
