Hands up if you work long hours and struggle to find time to get to the gym? Ok, we hear you there. Or maybe you have a generally busy routine but still want to get fit? We’ve got the solution to all your “no time to work out” problems.
YouTube Workouts You Can Do At Home
Forget the gym, Youtube can be just as good as actually leaving the house when it comes to your fitness. We’ve rounded up some of our fave workouts you can try now from the comfort of your own home. No excuses.
Cardio and dancing, the perfect combo when wanting to burn calories and really work up a sweat! Doing just 30 minutes burns around 250 calories (depending on how vigorously you throw yourself around your living room that is) but doing this every day for a week creates a weekly calorie deficit of 1,750. That’s half a pound loss a week!
The Body Coach
Now there’s just something so mesmerizing about those curls that seem to keep me watching! This one from The Body Coach is great if you don’t quite have a full hour or 30 minutes to spare but want to do a quick 20 minute HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) workout. Don’t forget a towel and your water, you’re going to need it!
The Abs Burner
So this one takes just 10 minutes which means absolutely no excuses! Summer is around the corner and if you’re looking to give those abs a workout then try this. It’s for beginners so anyone can do it, but if you feel you want to step it up a notch then check out the next one.
7 Minutes Dumbbell Ab Shredder
Don’t have a dumbbell? No problem, with this one you can fill up a bottle of water and use instead. I even started using furniture around my house! This workout may leave you feeling sore the next day so avoid being around your bestie who is guaranteed to make you laugh… ouch!
10 Minute Booty Workout
Okay, so I saved the best til’ last! I love nothing more than a good booty workout, especially when it can be done in the comfort of my own home. Put those buns to the test with this workout and if you want to make it a little harder then invest in a resistance band for a real burn!
There you have it, everything you need to become summer body ready… cardio, abs and glute exercises to try at home as many times as you like!
