5 Minutes seems the right amount of time
To get to a very nice sweat – with the right exercises of course.
The 30 Day Plank Challenge was phenomenal! My back, legs and core feel so much more reliable. I think that they are so effective that I will keep doing them every other day, in addition to the current challenge.
2 minutes of non-stop High Knees + 3 minutes of as many push ups as I can manage – every day, for 30 days.
If you don’t know what the High Knee exercise is, here is a great intro (ignore the smatlzcy American accent):
The key is sticking with it for as long as you can manage. I find that going slower is a better option than stopping – because it is really hard to get started again.
As for push ups, maintaining proper form is key to avoid injury. This dude gives great intro. Classic push up is fine – if you are adventurous, do some funky variations.
I’ve started already – so lets see how it goes! Good luck and please get moving.
Next for April: 2 minute burpees + 3 minutes of squats, every morning !
