I don't have time!

It's Wednesday, which means 1 thing. Yes, it is Hump Day and we are halfway there, but it is Workout Wednesday. "I don't have time" is the standard excuse of non-exercisers everywhere. Sometimes, I have trouble fitting it all in myself (TWSS)

Well, what if I told you that your workout doesn't have to take up the better part of your day?? That's right!!  Recent studies have shown that more strength, less belly fat, and better cardio are within reach. As a matter of fact, all it will take is four to fifteen minutes of work on your part.
Better still, you won’t need a gym membership or loads of equipment to complete a quick, calorie burning workout. In most cases all you need is some workout clothes and your own body weight.

If you looking to build size and strength, it might not take as long as you think. As a matter of fact, you can get better results in half the time. That’s exactly what a study in the European Journal of Applied Physiology concluded. They found that 15 minutes of resistance training was just as effective as 35 minutes of weight-lifting.

As it turns out, most people work out too slowly. If you were to condense your workout into a smaller time block, say 15 minutes, you’d see better results.

How to – get strong in 15 minutes
Pick four dumbbell, kettlebell or barbell exercises. Perform each move 10 -12 reps of each exercise. Do not take a break between exercises, go directly into the next. At the end of the circuit, rest for 90 seconds. Repeat the circuit 3 times.

Dumbbell Complex
12x Suitcase deadlift
12x biceps curl
12x upright row
12x overhead press
Kettlebell Complex
12x Swing
12x Lunge
12x Thruster
12x Figure 8 pass-through
Barbell Complex
10x Deadlift
10x Bent row
10x Military press
10x Back Squat

Ok, so there you have it. No more excuses! You DO have time to work out!


  1. Yes! I hate it when people say they don't have time to workout, but can tell you all about the tv shows they watched last night.

    1. I know, right! It frustrates me too! If you want it badly enough, you will make the time to make it happen!
