It’s a beautiful Saturday and I don’t want to spend it in the gym! If you’re also looking for a quick, effective workout that you can do outside (i.e sans equipment), try this 15-minute tabata-inspired session. Perform each exercise all-out for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds before starting the next move. The whole circuit takes only 5 minutes – do the whole thing 3x for a fast and KILLER no-equipment full body burn.
- Jump squats
- Tricep dips (still technically no-equipment. Just use a bench or chair to dip off of)
- Wall sit (or just hold a squat if you’re not near something you can lean against)
- Supermans (lay face down, arms stretched overhead. Raise arms, chest, and legs off the ground – you should feel it in your back. Hold for 2 seconds, then release back to the ground. Repeat!)
- Toe raises (stand with feet directly under hips. Stand up on your tippy toes, then lower. Repeat!)
- Mountain climbers
The combination of moves targets different areas all over your body and has you moving up and down in different positions to get your heart pumping! Try it out and let me know what you think! Then check your daily workout off your list and enjoy the dwindling summer
