My favourite workout

My favourite workout takes between 20 minutes and half an hour. In that time I can burn around 300 calories (a bigger person would do more), and be left lying on the floor unable to move. Like any good workout it's best done with a partner, but you can smash it out on your own too. It's short duration, but high intensity and perfect for when you don't have much time. You can do it with minimal equipment, body weight or a set of hand weights.

This is it.

  1. Warm up
  2. 20 box jumps, 20 squat thrusts, 20 bicep curls, 20 Lunges
  3. Run 500 metres (treadmill or oval- your choice)
Repeat 4 times .... preferably without a break or with minimal breaks

The trick is, each 500 m has to be faster than the last.

And if you've still got more in you ... finish it off with a 1km time trial on the rower.

Oh, and remember to have a good stretch at the end. We're all so busy, it's difficult to find one hour to work out, but 30 minutes can be slipped in during your lunch break.
