Mini Mountain Climber + Squat Swing Workout

I love this exercise combination. Mountain climbers target your chest, shoulders and abs as well as your cardiopulmonary system. Squat swings, meanwhile, work your back, shoulders, abs and glutes. You’ll need a medicine ball for this mini workout (I use a 9lb ball). You can do both these exercises without a medicine ball, but it will be less challenging. In the Mini Mountain Climber + Squat Swing Workout, you will perform mountain climbers for 1 minute, followed by 15 squat […]

If you’re unfamiliar with them, Swiss balls are exercise balls made of elastic soft PVC. They range in […]

Mini Shuttle Run + Push-Up Workout

Push-Up Workout

If cardio is part of your weekly exercise regimen, you’re more likely to see results if you periodize your cardiovascular training program. That’s because your body eventually adapts to the physical demands of cardio. If you’re in an aerobic rut, try breaking your cardio training into three sessions to include an interval training session, a fast paced session, and a continuous low intensity session. Interval training workouts are a great way to burn fat and spice up your cardio, and […]

Mini Workouts: Versatile and Effective!

It takes more than desire to commit to be fit. The best way to prioritize physical fitness is to schedule workouts into your day–like you would other appointments.

If you promised yourself you would hit the gym three mornings a week but it’s just not happening, don’t beat yourself up. But don’t take that as a free pass not to exercise either! Instead, why not […]
