I mean, who has time for the gym?
We understand that it is difficult to take time out of your busy schedule for gym. That’s why we’ve created our simple steps to a five minute workout at home. Also, check out the great video for a quick and easy tummy workout.
The Things You Will Need
- Some heavy weights (or something heavy you find around the house)
- A workout mat (or some towels to protect your back).
How it Works
Perform one set of every exercise back-to-back without any break. The proposed workout regime is quite effective. If you want to amplify the benefits of this exercise plan, couple it up with any other 5-minutes workout plan to form a comprehensive cardio health routine:
1. Dolphin Pike Ups
Start in an elbow plank position with your hands clutched tightly. Support abs stiffly and lift your hips by pressing your chest backward against thighs. Drag abs in close against spine and lower your hips to return to your initial position. Repeat it twenty times.
2. Single-Leg Deadlift With Row
Grip a dumbbell in your hand, or heavy object that you can hold. Keep your back straight, look straight ahead and hold your body in a firm position. Lower the upper body by folding your hip. Lower the dumbbells or move the bar below your thigh and tibia of the aiding leg. Push your hips backward and lightly bend the knee during the plunge. Move your free leg back and forth so it stays in level with your body. Lower your upper body, till you feel a slight stretch in the hamstrings. Return back to the initial position. Repeat this set 20 times and change sides.
3. Twisting Chest Press with Leg Drop
Start reclining on your back with both legs while holding up your arms. Grip one dumbbell in each hand. Lower your leg against the ground while you take your elbows out wide and your hands against your chest. Hold your wrists straight over the elbows. Return to the initial position. Perform 20 repetitions.
