This Bodyweight Workout Is So Good, You Only Need 10 Minutes to Do It
There's nothing wrong with being busy, but you can't forget to take care of yourself. We support your hustle, but we also want you to make time for yourself and be healthy.
We had the opportunity to train with NASM-certified trainer and influencer Nicole Mejia at the DistrictFit festival and because it was so good, we asked her to create a workout for the days when you're in a time crunch. Not going to lie, after Nicole told us the workout, we were like, "Damn, this is no joke!" It's only 10 minutes, but we're warning you now: it's going to challenge you.
The 10-Minute Workout
Before getting started, do a quick dynamic warmup to get your muscles warm and ready to work. You'll notice that there are no sets or reps for this workout; instead, everything is done to failure. This means you'll do as many reps as you can for each exercise until you can no longer perform the exercise. Once you can't perform any more reps, you'll move on to the next exercise. If you complete all the exercises and still have time on the clock, start back at the beginning and continue until the time is up. Don't forget to cool down once you've completed the workout.
- Push-up: to failure
- Burpee: to failure
- Plank: to failure
- Squat jump: to failure
- Plyo lunge: to failure
