Exercise is not the greatest thing to do for most people. Yes it is helpful, needful and very important due to the effects it works on body, but it is not a joyful experience for some of us. Choosing between watching one more episode of Suits season 6 and a session of exercise, the former is of a better choice. Here are these few 180 seconds exercises that you can do quickly that are also just as effective as the full blown exercises. Here we go:
1. 180° Jump Squats
Think like a regular jump squat, but you land facing the opposite direction.
Make it easier by walking legs in and out instead of jumping.
3. Side Shuffle With Knee Holds
The trick to nailing the hold is keeping your core tight.
4. High Knees
Pumping your arms is key.
5. Inchworm With Push-Ups
The goal is to stand up tall after each rep, and you can modify the push-up by dropping to your knees.
6. Jumping Jacks
Challenge yourself by picking up the pace.
7. Jumping Lunges
Modify this exercise by skipping the jump and performing alternating reverse lunges instead.
8. Side Shuffles
Try to take up as much space as you can as you move side to side.
9. Kick Unders
If your opposite hand and foot can’t touch, that’s OK—just focus on kicking your leg under and through.
10. Mt. Climbers
Pick up your pace if you want more of a challenge.
11. Plank Ups
12. Power Lunges
Don’t forget to do both sides.
13. Skater Hops
Modify this move by keeping the toes of your back foot on the ground for extra balance.
Add these moves to your regular at-home workout or mix-and-match them to create a new routine. For example, pick six of the moves above, do the first one for 30 seconds then rest for 10 seconds and move on to the second move.
Do this until you complete all six moves. Rest for one minute, then repeat the circuit one to two more times. Also, don’t forget to add upbeat music to help you get in the mood and make the process much more enjoyable.
