Balancing Your Busy Life

I can’t give you more time in your day. What I can give you is a way to manage your health in your busy lifestyle. 

We all have arguable reasons why we bypass the gym on the way home:you haven’t seen your child or spouse all day, you need to let your dog out, you need to get dinner started, help your kids with their homework, etc. I could truly go on and on.

You can overcome these obstacles by reducing the time you workout and increasing the intensity of your work out. You can also just do your workout at home either before the kids get up or while they are doing their homework. Half the battle is getting to the gym. If you workout at home – you are already there so…tada, excuse busted.

Try this at home circuit:

Set a timer for 30 seconds and perform the following for 30 seconds each:

  • Squats
  • Jumping Jacks
  • Push ups
  • Lunges
  • Dips
  • Step Ups
  • Burpees

Repeat circuit as many times you can or have time for. Try not to rest in between the exercises and then rest before repeating the circuit.

If you need explanations for any of the above exercises, please just ask!

Be Happy. Be Healthy. No Excuses.

    Thanks so much for this, Jana!

    Only question is, what’s a burpee?

      Good Question!
      Burpee:
      Begin in a standing position.
      Drop down to a squat with your hands on the floor.
      Jump your feet back so you are in a push up position.
      Jump your feet back to the squat position.
      Return to the start position (standing)

      Here is a quick you tube video of a burpee:

    Thanks! So it’s a squat-thrust. Why did they change the name to a burpee? That sounds more like something little Archer does … 😉

    Thanks again!
