There are some days when you are entirely motivated to workout. You feel inspired, you have energy, you’re ready to go and crush it. But for the other kinds of days, the days when you’re busy, tired, it’s raining and you just don’t feel like it, I’ve got you covered with these do anywhere twenty minute workouts. They’re just about as excuse proof as it gets! Ready? Don’t have enough time? These are just 20 minutes- before bed, first thing in the morning, even while dinner’s cooking, this is a workout you can squeeze in. Don’t have gym access? Perfect, these workouts can be done anywhere but were really designed to do at home.Don’t have weights? No worries, these are entirely equipment free! All you need for these twenty minute workouts is yourself, a timer, and some floor space. Personally, my favorite ways to use these are to pop on a great show on TV and do these while I watch!
There are 4 different series here and each includes targeted workouts to different body areas. Scan through them, pick the one that will motivate you the most and then enjoy! If you have time, I recommend adding this on to a regular cardio schedule (ex: 20 minute run then do one of these plans). I usually suggest strength training 3-4 times per week and cardio 3-4 times per week (double up some days) and always take 1-2 rest days per week! As with any workout routine, just as important as the work you do is the fuel you give yourself. Especially working out regularly, make sure you’re feeding your body right with a balanced, nutrient rich diet plan! Most of these plans are time based meaning you do as many (correct!) reps as you can in a set amount of time. One of the most motivating things for me is keeping track of how many reps I can do and watching the numbers climb as I grow stronger!

TONE IN TWENTY HIIT: these plans use a HIIT (high intensity interval training) style. This means they alternate between short bursts of HIGH intensity and longer periods of medium intensity (designed to be a “rest”). Try to keep going as much as possible to get the maximum benefits! It’s only 20 minutes, you can make it! 🙂
