Today’s podcast is all about getting a great workout - in a short amount of time.
Whether you are in a serious time crunch or just realllllly don’t feel like doing it… I’m explaining why research shows that you can still really make strides towards your goals in just 15 minutes.
I’m giving you lots of ideas of what to do in 15 minutes that is going to exhaust you, AND help your body increase fat burn and energy expenditure for hours after exercise.
Momentum is everything, especially with fitness, so we know that more we show up on the regular, the better we will feel and the healthier we will be. Even if you just have a few minutes, just showing up and putting in the work keeps you in the groove of it and you can actually burn fat and increase muscle in these quick sessions too.
We’re talking about killer SHORT workouts today… let’s go!
Here are some ways Lindsay talks about getting a great workout in a short amount of time…
-HIIT - high intensity interval training (and it doesn’t have to be high impact)
-Run at an incline on a treadmill
-Do traditional weight lifting exercises using heavy weights
-Take an online express class
-Get outside! Run fast, run hills, do stepups on a bench
*It should be hard! You should sweat!*
-Don’t take many breaks
-Push to exhaust the muscles (or yourself!)
-Consistency is key! A bunch of short workouts consistently is better for you than a few long workouts.
-Take online classes to keep you moving quickly
-It helps with your mental toughness
And it’s so good for your mental health!! It can help reduce anxiety, depression and get you out of a bad mood!
CHEERS! To moving your body everyday!! (even if it’s just 15 minutes).
