effective workouts

Don't have time to workout? Try this!

Time is one of the most given reasons people don’t workout. And while I wholeheartedly believe that you prioritize what's important to you, it’s impossible to overlook other important obligations that need fulfilled as well. Between working long hours, running errands, going to school, and still making time for your loved ones—it can take up your entire day and make working out seem nearly impossible.

This is usually why fitness ends up taking the back burner and I totally get it. Even I have those weeks from time to time where I think to myself: How the fuck am I supposed to workout today?

This is why I am huge advocate for making fitness work for YOU. Because the truth is, not everyone can dedicate 5-6 days a week in the gym for hours at a time (not even I can). It comes down to finding something that you can stick to consistently and makes the most sense for your schedule. Fitness shouldn't be an added stressor to your life—it should be the opposite. 

The solution for most people is to make fitness quick...and by that I mean, like real quick. This doesn't mean it's going to be ineffective, either. If programmed correctly, it can be even more effective than a longer workout. 

….After all, something is better than nothing, right?

This is where circuit style training comes in. In this case, you’ll get lifting and cardio done all in one session. Talk about efficiency.

It can look something like this: 

  • 10 (R/L) rengade rows 
  • 10 (R/L) dumbbell alternating reverse lunges
  • 10 overhead press
  • 10 romanian deadlifts

Complete as many rounds as possible within 15 minutes.

This type of training not only saves time, but promotes fat loss for longer periods of time, can lead to a healthy heart, improves strength, and preserves muscle (and can potentially build new muscle!!). 

If you’re all about this approach, I have good news: I created a workout program for you with workouts similar to the one above. 

Fitness At Home is designed so you can get shit done quickly and more efficiently. The workouts take less than 20 minutes and you don’t even have to deal with the hassle of going to the gym—you can do them in your own home. The program is four weeks long, with three new workouts every single week and all you need is a set of dumbbells.
