Here are some quick and effective exercise routines that you can fit into your busy day – no matter how busy you think you are!
Here are the exercises in order that you will do:
- Alternating Lunges
- Push Ups
- Squat Thrust Jumps
— Total number of rounds: 10 (if you need demos, check out this exercise library).
Here is the rep scheme to follow for each round.
10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1
So to clarify, for the first round you will do:
- 10 Alternating Lunges (each leg)
- 10 Push Ups
- 10 Squat Thrust Jumps
Then you will repeat the same exercises for 9 reps to complete your 2nd round:
- 9 Alternating Lunges (each leg)
- 9 Push Ups
- 9 Squat Thrust Jumps
Then repeat again until you get to the last round with one rep of each exercise. It’s a simple workout, but highly effective.
