10 minute total body workout

by Heather

As a new mom time is precious.  When Hunter goes down for a nap I try to cram in as many things as possible.  Usually it’s shower, eat and clean a bit.  Sometimes I get a short workout in at home too, but since his naps typically last 45 minutes (sometimes longer), workouts need to be short.

For this one 10 minutes is all you need.  Since it’s timed and super short you want to make sure to push yourself.  You get out what you put in, so remember to put in effort and you’ll be rewarded!

Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Set a timer for 10 minutes.  Warm up for a few minutes (okay so the workouts takes a little longer than 10 minutes ;)).

Once you’re ready START!

  • 20 high knees
  • 10 single leg squats
  • 5 pull ups
  • repeat as many times as you can before 10 minutes is up

Cool down and stretch a bit.

How many rounds do you think you can do in 10 minutes?  I did 10 rounds + 20 high knees and 10 squats.  Try and beat me!

If you don’t have a pull up bar sub in push ups for the pull ups.

What do you think, do you have 10 minutes for a workout?

You rock. After each one of my kids was born the LAST thing I wanted to do was workout and of course I am paying for it now. Started working with a trainer and doing a boot camp to kick this butt in gear. 10 minutes is better than no minutes so I might have to accept that challenge 🙂

What an awesome workout! If I had one of those pull-up bars I would try this out! I bet it’s a lot of fun (and efficient too)! 🙂

[…] short and effective. Ah ha! Something like my 10 minute total body workout? I think so! The pressure of the clock keeps the intensity up. A wife sitting there channeling her […]
