No Time For CPM No Problem…

Our goal at CPMFITness is to make you feel and be the “Best You Can Be”. We understand that your schedule does not always allow you to make it to class, but that doesn’t mean you have to let your health and fitness goals go just because you are not here.

We can make excuses as to why we don’t have the time to workout … or we can just block our 10 minutes and give yourself a really good sweat.

If you say you don’t have 10-15 minutes in your day you are lying to yourself! The average American watches (according to the Huffington Post) 4:31 minutes of television a day, and we spend 100 million minutes a day playing “Angry Birds”.

We don’t have to go to the gym for two hours a day in order to get a good workout!

Here are some great tips to help you in a time crunch that will make you feel great and look even better!

#1 Tabata:
This is an interval training exercise from Dr. Tabata 8 rds of 20 seconds of work 10 seconds of rest.

You can do this with many different exercises: Burpees, Situps, squats, and pushups are great fat burning and sculpting exercises.

#2 Jump Rope:
Grab a jump rope and set the timer for 10 minutes and jump. Every minute switch from single jumps, to running, one leg, double unders, etc. Every time your rope stops perform 3 burpees.

The burpee is the overall best total body exercise. You get cardio, core, legs, and arms all in one! Do two minutes of max burpees then rest 30 seconds and repeat this 4 times.

#4 Do Plyometrics:
Plyometrics really get the heart rate up give you a fantastic sweat that will make you feel like you did an hour of work in just 10 minutes!

Create 5 stations and go 2 times through switching after each minute.

1. Tuck Jumps
2. Side to side hops
3. Flutter Kicks
4. Jump Squats
5. Jumping Jacks

#5 Sprints:

Find a hill, and sprint up it for 15 seconds. Take 30 to 45 seconds to recover repeat 10 times. These types of speed intervals are fantastic for burning fat and giving you the booty you desire!

Now you have all the tools to throw your “time excuse” out the window!

Just 10 minutes a day can keep the doctor away….
