When life gets busy, it is hard to fit in time to go to the gym. Sometimes, it is difficult to find the motivation to leave the comfort of your own home. Not everyone can be a gym rat, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip out on giving your body the workout it deserves. YouGoz sat down with Boston-based personal trainer Emma Balek, who put together this no-equipment, full-body work out that anyone can do pretty much anywhere.
This 24-minute HIIT workout includes five pairs of exercises. Do each for 30 seconds with no break in between. Between each pair of moves, rest for 30 seconds. Repeat all of the rounds three times with a one minute rest in between. Check out the full workout video below for demonstrations of each move and visit Emma’s blog for more health and fitness tips!
Round one: Mountain climbers and tricep dips
Mountain climbers will target your upper body and core muscles while the tricep dips will work, well, your triceps!
Round two: Pop-up squats and glute bridges
Pop-up squats work out your outer and inner thighs as well as your quads while glute bridges will tone your butt.
Round three: Plank jack knifes and wide arm push ups
Plank jack knifes target your shoulders and your core and wide arm push ups get your chest and triceps.
Round four: Jump lunges and reverse plank walk outs
Jump lunges work your quads and glutes while reverse plank walk outs work your hamstrings.
Round five: Ab tuck extensions and spidermans
Ab tuck extensions are another way to work your core while spidermans work your obliques.
