15 Minutes A Day Is all You Need

 

Daily exercise is key to good health! Regular exercise is a good easy way to reduce your chance of getting certain diseases such as  heart disease, development of diabetes, lower blood pressure, and reduce cholesterol. Exercise helps improve your mood and mental functions and keeping your joints and bones strong. Most importantly helping one to maintain a healthy weight.

Try this 15-minute workout regime for at least 5 days a week. During the week make sure you eat healthy, drink lots of water and sleep well! Do NOT let anything get in the way of you getting your 8 hours, or at least 7 hours, of sleep. You will thank yourself the next day.

This workout will be made up of only 5 workout exercise that should be 30 seconds each, a rest for 45 seconds and that completes one circuit. Repeat the whole circuit about three or five times until you reach the 15 minutes. Let’s Start!

    2. Plank Knee to Chest

           This is the same position as a plank, the difference is that you bring your knees up to your chest. Start off with one knee and back down and then opposite leg brought up to the chest and back down.

     3.    Crunches

It is a regular sit up except instead of your feet on the floor, raise them up. Use your core to lift yourself up to your knees. If you want to feel a little more heat twist your core and move to a different side each time you raise your top half.

    4.    Squat

           Stand with your feet about hip-width apart. When bending downwards it should resemble as if your sitting over an imaginary toilet, it should be at 90 degrees. Squeeze that gluteus on your way back up.

           Using the same position as the squat with feet hip-width apart. Doing a half squat, then jumping straight up while spreading your arms and legs resembling a star. Then landing back on to your feet in the half squat position.
