Happy Monday! ❤
It’s rainy here in NJ and with this gloomy, rainy weather comes gloomy moods and unmotivated minds. Well not on the Fitness Food & Family blog! 🙂
Today I wanted to post a workout that EVERYONE can do and that EVERYONE will have time for!! Recently I have spoken with amazing fitness-minded people, people who are determined to reach their goals in 2015 and people who just need help finding the time. So I wanted to post a workout that can be done in a short amount of time, thats effective and that allows you to keep track of your progress! I am not a programmer, nor am I a trainer, but these movements can be done as quick or as slow as needed in order keep your muscles safe, but still effective. All you need is 5 minutes! Whether you are busy with work, family or school, this is a fun, fast workout you can fit in to any busy day!
And of course, I’m here for any and ALL questions you may have! Comment below, or message me privately so I can help you reach those 2015 goals.
Set a timer for 5 minutes and have it count down! This is all the time you will need for this workout.
The movements you will be doing for this workout, in this EXACT order, are
-10 burpees (how-to video below)
-15 air squats (how-to video below)
Once you have completed all the reps for each movement (10 burpees, 10 push-ups, 10 air squats), that is ONE ROUND. Once you have completed one round, REPEAT the movements. Once you have completed all the reps for each movement for the second time, that is TWO ROUNDS. Repeat this process until your 5 minutes is up! Each time you complete the above movements to their entirety, that counts as one round. The goal is to get as many rounds as possible in the 5 minutes!
*IF you complete 2 FULL rounds and ONLY get to 10 burpees & 5 push-ups when the 5 minutes runs out, record your score as: 2 rounds + 15 (This shows that you completed 2 full rounds with 15 reps into the third)
*IF you complete 1 FULL round and ONLY get to 7 burpees when the 5 minutes runs out, record your score as: 1 round + 7 (This shows that you completed 1 full round with 7 reps into the second)
TIP: Do not start out super fast in the beginning of your 5 minutes, start out at a pace you can maintain throughout the entire 5 minutes!
Next week, do this workout again and try to beat the amount of rounds you completed last week! Track your results so you can compare your progress week to week!

One thought on “5 Minute At Home Workout”
Very useful post! It was an inspiration for me to write about how exercises found online can be motivating! https://yourfitself.wordpress.com/2015/11/14/online-exercising-youtube-blogs/
