No matter how much you love your gym, you probably still don’t want to spend too much time there. Please. There are about 20 other things I’d like to be doing with my time. That’s why we try to make most of our workouts 30 minutes or less. Why? Because you can get just as much done with a 30 minute workout as you can with a 60 minute workout if you do it right.
We talk about this subject a lot. So much, in fact that we wanted to do a quick round-up of our favorite 30 minute workouts (maybe less if you hustle!).
30 minute workout #1: Get sweaty
Our number one quick workout is short, but it will get you nice and sweaty. You will definitely be thanking us for this one tomorrow morning. Why do we love it? Because this workout combines our favorite body weight exercises and dumbell exercises to give you a totally efficient workout in no time
30 minute workout #2: Hiit it, gurrrrl
Have we mentioned lately that we love, love, LOVE us some HIIT workouts. They’re fast, they’re challenging and they WORK! Why? Because you’re combining strength AND cardio AND some seriously intense movements. But never fear! The short rest periods will allow you to regain your energy between sets.
30 minute workout #3: Totally tabata
Tabata is great for those of us with short attention spans. Tabata workouts are made of cycles of 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest. Sound too easy? Try this workout and then get back to us.
Oh look at that! We just planned THREE of your workouts for this. And they’re all 30 minutes or less! Leave a comment to let us know what you’ll be doing with the hour and a half you’ve saved!
