Exercises and Workouts – Four Tips For Fitting a Workout in on a Busy Day

We all have them – days that simply seem to get away from us. Try as we might, we are falling behind, and our exercise program is continually being pushed further and further back.

What’s one to do? Will you skip the workout entirely or make a few adjustments to your routine and do your best? Always aim to go with the latter. It is important you do not skip your workout entirely as remember, some exercise is always better than no exercise. Here are some quick tips to help fit exercise into your day no matter how busy you are…

1. Go Compound. First, ditch all the isolation exercises you have in place and focus strictly on compound movements. These will work for multiple muscle groups at once, hence give you the biggest “bang for your buck,” so to speak.

Examples include…

  • squats,
  • deadlifts,
  • bench press,
  • bent over rows,
  • shoulder press, and
  • pull-ups.

These should be the mainstay of a short-on-time workout program.2. Super set. Next, focus on super setting your exercises as much as you can. If you can pair together one upper body move with one lower body move, you will see the best results as one-half of your body can rest while the other half is working.

Super setting your exercises cuts back on how much downtime you have for rest, ensuring you are not wasting any unnecessary time in the gym. As a bonus, it will also keep your heart rate up, giving you cardiovascular like effects.

3. Do Abs Between Sets. You can also choose to do core movements between your main exercises as a way to keep your body moving and strengthening your midsection at the same time. It will save you from having to devote another ten minutes in the end to do abdominal work.

4. Do Reps For Time. Finally, last but not least, consider the “reps for time” set-up. With this set-up, you will aim to perform each exercise for say one minute straight, doing as many reps as you can inside that minute.

It is a very intense way to work your body and get in a complete workout in under ten minutes.

There you have some fast and straightforward tips on how you can maximize your fitness in a minimal amount of time. Next time you have only 10 to 15 minutes to give to a workout, do not think this means you cannot get one in. Just be smart in your approach, and you will find you use the time well.
