3 Quick and Dirty Workouts

These days I have very limited time to get my workouts in.

Aleena is almost crawling now (yikes!) and when she is awake, she is AWAKE. She wants to explore, play, and put anything and everything in her mouth.
As soon as I put her down for a nap, it’s GO TIME. I am amazed at how much faster I can get things done now that I’m a mom. I literally can do 20 things in the same amount of time I used to do 1 thing. I guess that’s what happens when your life is measured by your baby’s naps.

So let’s get into the workouts. Most of the workouts I do now are quick and intense. I want to get the most bang for my buck, in the shortest amount of time. If you’re life is crazy hectic, but you want a quick and effective workout, give these workouts a try. If you’re a masochist like I am, I guarantee you will LOVE them.

Workout 1: Lower body burn

Squat with bottom half pulse
Walking lunges
Bulgarian split squats
Glute bridge
Jump squats

Beginner: 3 rounds, 30 seconds of work, 30 seconds rest.
Advanced: 4 rounds, 45 seconds of work, 15 seconds rest.

Workout 2: Upper body & Core

Pushups (if you can’t do floor pushups, do them off the wall or an elevated surface like a couch/bench)
Bent over row
Mountain climbers
Bicep curl to overhead press
Alternating side plank

Beginner: 3 rounds, 30 seconds of work, 30 seconds rest.
Advanced: 4 rounds, 45 seconds of work, 15 seconds rest.

Workout 3: Total body

Squat to burpee to bicep curl
Reverse lunge to single-arm overhead press
Tricep bodyweight dips
Renegade row
Bear crawl (with or without band–adds extra resistance)

Beginner: 3 rounds, 30 seconds of work, 30 seconds rest.
Advanced: 4 rounds, 45 seconds of work, 15 seconds rest.

The total workout time for the beginner circuit is 15:00 minutes, and for the advanced circuit it’s 19:45 minutes.

That’s LESS THAN 20 MINUTES. That’s less than 1.4% of your day!
