Here is a great work out that you can do in about 30 minutes or less.
Don’t worry if you don’t have any equipment, like kettle bells or weights. I’ve provided an “optional” exercise you can use.
You don’t need a lot of time to get a great work out. However, it is important to keep your body moving.
Disclaimer: Please make sure to talk to your doctor, personal trainer, or other fitness or health professional before starting any exercise program. These are all examples of exercises I have used. However, everyone’s different, so what works for me may, or may not, work for you. Please always be careful when doing these or any exercises and listen to your body. In other words, stop or take a break whenever you need to.
Before trying the exercises below, please check out the video examples. Just click the exercise title/link to view the videos. It’s important to use good form and technique so you don’t hurt yourself while working out. Remember to practice the moves. The goal is to stay healthy and fit, not to get hurt! 🙂
