1. TRY OUT TABATA
Tabata is a form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) that requires you to do several rounds of super intense exercises that you perform in 20-seconds-on, 10-seconds-off intervals. It sounds like a lot because it is a lot, but if you’re short on time and really want something quick and effective to challenge your body.
2. BECOME BFFS WITH THE PLANK
A plank is one of those workouts that, at first glance, doesn’t look like it’s that hard, but anyone who does this move on the reg will tell you the truth: it freaking burns.
3. TAKE THE STAIRS WHENEVER YOU HAVE THE OPTION
Say goodbye to the escalator, people. Stairs are everywhere, and you can easily use them for so many different types of cardio- and strength-based workouts when you’re not climbing them just to get from Point A to Point B. Run up the stairs, walk down, and repeat.
4. DO SOME SQUATS OR LUNGES WHENEVER, WHEREVER
When it comes to taking care of your health through exercise, you don’t necessarily need equipment to do so, or even access to a gym. All you need is your very own body and a heaping dose of motivation.
5. DROP AND GIVE ME 30 BURPEES
The exercise everyone loves to hate. They’re painful, but they’re effective. These exercises should definitely be your friend rather than foe if you’re short on time in your workout routine.
