Moseyed on to the local park this morning, and got a fantastic workout in. I was pressed for time, so I did one of my simplest, and shortest workout routines. The entire workout lasted 20 minutes at most, and this was including rest periods. And believe you me, I worked up a pretty darn good sweat while I was at it - and it's winter right now.
And get this - I did only TWO exercises. That's correct, just TWO exercises, and simple ones requiring NO equipment. And they left me hammered in 20 minutes flat. I did do some other stuff after that just to test myself, but as expected, I did not do as well on those exercises - which was to be expected - the two "biggies" took everything I had and then somemore.
A brief recap of my workout this morning would look somewhat like this: -
- Short, yet effective workout
- 20 minutes total, and a lot of that is REST - and your hammered at the end of it.
- NO fancy exercises, and NO equipment required; just good old fashioned determination, and HARD work
- Strength plus cardiovascular workout - all in one!
And those are the type of routines I advocate. Exercises that are simple, yet more than get the job done - and that too in quick time, as opposed to the hour-long (or more) routines containing tons of exercises in each workout. . . Of course, you can choose either - but if I were you, I know which I'd choose! More later.
Until next time, take care - and if your working out today, make it a GREAT one!!
