I’m a big believer in finding a way to workout no matter the challenges.
If having limited time seems like an obstacle to exercise, I’ve got you covered! Here is a fast 15 minute Hustle Workout for y’all from a recent FB Live session we did this past Spring! (The time includes the warmup.) This is the sort of workout we do before travel, or when we don’t have a lot of time but still want to get a sweat on and our hearts pumping!
If you have just 15 minutes you can fit in a great workout. In fact, HIIT (high intensity interval training) has become more popular lately. HIIT involves short bursts of intense exercise alternated with low-intensity recovery periods. It is a really time-efficient way to exercise (typically ranging from 10-30 minutes), and offers awesome health benefits* like:
- Burning a lot of calories in a short amount of time
- Increasing metabolic rate for hours after exercise
- Aiding in losing fat and gaining muscle
- Improving oxygen consumption
- Helps in reducing heart rate and blood pressure and blood sugar
We hope you enjoy our version of a HIIT workout. You can modify the moves and do a lower-impact version (watch Adam). The crucial part is to keep moving. It is important to be aware of your form (mirrors help!) so you don’t injure yourself. Grab a workout buddy, add music, and forget your worries for a few minutes while you focus on your body.
Oh, and I hope you enjoy a couple cameo appearances by my family members, as well as a sweet wipeout (leading people and talking through a workout is harder than you think!).
Have fun with this!
