I feel like blogging, a full time job and trying to stay fit makes me more tired thinking about it than doing it. Facts of L I F E! And I know a lot of you that take the time to read the blog probably have the exact same issue. You know what our problem is? Balance.
That’s the key. Figuring out how to fit everything in and get it all done. There are days I can’t make it to the gym or can’t do an hour workout so I came up with a quick workout that fits my schedule but still makes me feel like I did something.
So you know how you want to be consistent with your workouts especially for the new year, carnival or overall fitness but you:
a) don’t know what to do
b) are not consistent
c) have a whole bunch of other responsibilities
d) all of the above
I love this 30 minute or less plyo workout and plyos in general because they can be done in a short period of time and are a very EFFECTIVE alternative to cardio or if you just don’t have time to get to a gym. They can be done at home or wherever you have a flat surface and some room to move around in.
What is a plyometric?
The jump exercise. A quick, intense type of movement that involves jumping, bounding and using a certain amount of force. It builds strength and works on cardiovascular fitness simultaneously.
Consult a doctor if you’re pregnant, have joint issues, arthritis and/or respiratory or heart conditions.
