Trainer Tip Tuesday: A short workout is better then NO workout. I think we can all spare 20 minutes to get in a quick workout.
While watching the Patriots game on Sunday I completed a quick 20-minute bodyweight workout that left me huffing and puffing. I handed Marc my phone and set up the timer so that every minute he could tell me to change exercises. Ava challenged me during my pushups by trying to pull herself up on me.
As my WARM-UP I took a brisk 5 minute walk around the block with Cooper to get my blood pumping.
20 Minute Full Body Quickie
Perform each exercise for 1 MINUTE, repeat circuit 3X or more depending on how long you have to train
If you don’t have space for a rope, jump in place
Lunge to Knee Raise
step back into your lunge, as you come back to your starting position raise your knee up to waist height
Lying flat on the floor with your hands behind your head, lift your shoulders off the floor and rotate to the left, repeat and switch sides

Fake Lateral Cone-Hops
take two lateral hops to each side, if you have cones use them! If not you could put 2 paper plates down instead.
Cool Down With some light stretching
