Core: Rolling Plank Start in plank position and transfer weight onto your right hand for side plank, stacking your feet, and hold for 5 to 10 seconds. Roll back into plank, then shift into side plank on the opposite hand, lifting through your arm, core, and hip on the left side, keeping your body in line. Switch sides 5 times.
Five 15-Minute Workouts By Elena Rover No time to exercise? Here are five fast routines you can do at home or on the road.
For some reason we tell ourselves (or at least I do) that it's pointless for me to exercise unless I can do it for my hour long stretch at the gym. But that's so wrong! I don't have time to workout for an hour and a half at the gym in the morning, but I CAN jump out of bed and do this, and hit the gym later. YES!!!
Chair Circuit (set an interval timer for 40 rounds of 30-seconds work and 10-seconds rest; repeat the following sequence five times: 1. step-ups right, 2. step-ups left, 3. elevated knee tucks, 4. alternating leg lifts, 5. elevated lunge jumps right, 6. elevated lunge jumps left, 7. triceps kick dips, 8. hanging knee raises)
30 day challenge- see what changes - This takes minutes to do right before I go to bed. It takes nearly NO SPACE. I can do all these exercises in the space between my wall and bed. The only thing I don't do is the jumping jacks. I figure gravity is doing a really good job on it's own and I don't need to help it out by jumping up and down. These are all back to basics exercises.
