This time of year especially, things get crazy, we are running around trying to get all our shopping done, cooking, baking, wrapping presents, parties. When do we find the time to workout? Well here is a quick bodyweight workout for you to try out at home or at the gym. Remember these workouts are intense and are not for everyone. If you are not sure how to execute an exercise properly please seek the advice of a certified personal trainer or feel free to contact me with any questions. I will be offering modifications for different levels. Please choose the level that is appropriate for you, and please get medical clearance from your doctor if you are new to exercise.

For this workout, you will want to time yourself and keep track of how long it takes you to complete it I wouldn’t suggest doing this workout on a daily basis, but you can do it weekly to see how you are progressing.

If you cannot do pull ups you can use an assisted pull up machine or perform an inverted row. If you cannot do standard pushups, you can modify them by doing them from your knees or against a wall.
