Mini workouts

November 08, 2007

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:

  1. Leg press or squat
  2. Chest press or bench press (or even push-ups)
  3. 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.
