Short and sweet workouts have great value. Don't belittle or poo-poo them.
On those days when you find that you don't have the time to exercise, what you are really saying is that I don't have time to do a lot of exercise - or my usual full routine.
Well you don't need to.
Here are the three exercises you need to do and still stimulate global strength gains:
- Leg press or squat
- Chest press or bench press (or even push-ups)
- Pull-downs or chin-ups
That's it. It will take you all of 3 minutes to complete.
Is it better to do more? Sure. But these three do a heck of a lot.
So when you think "Oy vey! I truly don't have 30 minutes today to do 10+ exercises." fret not. Do these three and feel guilt free.
