Quick and Effective Workouts for Busy People

As we all know time is a commodity that we will never get back. That being said, I will show you guys some workouts that you can do anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you’re at home, at the office, at your little brothers soccer game, or even outside waiting for your Uber to come pick you up.

Exercise #1: Calf Raises

The first exercise is called calf raises. Calf raises are an exercise that will help you strengthen and sculpt your calf muscles. All you need to do is find a ledge of some sort or a stair or raised platform, place your toe and heels on the platform and thrust upward and downward. Usually a single set of 15 to 30 will be adequate enough to help build your calf muscles. If you feel a little bit more advanced then add 50 to 100 calf raises.

Exercise #2: Alternating Lunges

The second workout we will talk about is called an alternating lunge. Alternating Lunges are a great exercise because they don’t require any extra equipment, just yourself. All you need to do is stand tall and step outward with one leg and dip the other leg at a 90 degree angle with your knee almost touching the ground. Retreat to starting position and do the same thing with the other leg. A good number of alternating lunges to do in a set in order to see results over time would be anywhere from 10 to 20 lunges. Alternating lunges are a great exercise to help build up muscle strength in your hamstrings and quads.

Exercise #3: Jogging in Place

The third exercise is jogging in place. Jogging in place is a great exercise to help with your cardiovascular system and help build stamina. This is a great exercise in circumstances where you are short on time because you can do it almost anywhere. It is said that sets of 45 seconds to a minute help increase your heart rate and get the blood flow going.

Exercise #4: Wall Push – Ups

The fourth workout are wall push ups. Wall push ups are a great exercise because you don’t have to get down on the floor and get dirty, you can stand upright and still get the same results as a regular push up. All you have to do is stand six inches away from a wall, lean forward on the wall with both hands, make sure your back is diagonally straight with the wall and use exagerated resistance to push down and push up. The further you place your hands apart, the more you will workout your chest and the closer you place your hands together the more you will workout your triceps. Take your pick on which muscle you want to work and get going!

Exercise #5: Squats

The fifth and final workout are called squats. Just like the other exercises squats can be done in any environment. All you have to do is stand up straight make sure your feet are shoulder width apart and drop your butt downward keeping your back straight, your chest and head up. This exercise in particular helps with your quads, hamstring, and core. A sufficient number of squats to see muscle improvement range anywhere from 20 to 30.

As you can see these five exercises alone can fit into any persons schedule no matter how busy, all you need is yourself and a little bit of self motivation to achieve the healthy lifestyle that you want.
