Need a quick killer workout?

Posted: November 22, 2010 in WORKOUTS & CHALLENGES

I know, I know – Thanksgiving is this week so you are all VERY busy.  The gym rat in me says stop whining and just get it done!! But, the angel on my shoulder says at times people really can’t find the time.  For those of you who still want to workout but REALLY can’t find an hour, here’s a quick, effective workout that will only take about 20 minutes:

Perform each exercise for 60 seconds.  Rest 30 seconds in between each exercise and 90 secs between sets.  Perform 3 sets.

1.  High knee runs

2.  X push ups (Do a push up.  At the top of the push up, bring the leg knee to the right elbow and back down.  Then, bring the right knee to left elbow and back down. Do another push up. And keep it going)

3.  Jump Squats

4.  Mountain Climbers

5.  Jump Lunges

Look hard?  Well since it’s only 20 minutes, I hope you didn’t expect it to be easy.  You will really need to PUSH IT!  Ready?  Let’s GO!!!!

And remember, if you need any help, you can always hit me up here or on Twitter @brooklyn_1012.
