Best Way To Workout When You Don't Have Time (or Want To)

2MT - summer workout

The stay at home order has been lifted and other restrictions are starting to be lifted too. That means a more ‘normal’ looking summer with travel, cottage weekends, backyard barbeques.

A busy summer may mean you have less time for fitness but it doesn’t have to be that way!

Watch Dr. Rob show you how to stay fit this summer with a quick, effective workout:

Here’s the 4 exercises you need to target every muscle in your body in no-time:

Grab a bottle of laundry detergent, a jug of juice, vinegar, or anything you can find with a bit of weight to it. Write down your exercises, sets, and reps and get to work!

Squat with Press

  • Holding your weight with both hands, push your hips back into a squat.
  • As you lower your body press the weight overhead focusing on keeping your back straight.
  • Lower the weight and return to the starting position.
  • Squat down again and move the weight straight out in front of you.
  • Return to the start. That’s 1 rep.

Pushup with Mountain Climber

  • In a plank position with your hands under your shoulders, lower your chest to the ground.
  • Push back up to the top and bring one knee up to the opposite hand.
  • Repeat on the other side.
  • To make this exercise easier try placing your hands on a counter or bench to reduce the load.

Reverse Lunge with Shoulder Press

  • Hold your weight in one hand with your palm facing forward.
  • Step back with the leg  on the same side as your weight and drop into a lunge until both knees are close to 90 degrees.
  • As you lower into the lunge, press the weight up above your head.
  • Avoid letting your shoulder hike up toward your ear during this movement.
  • To make it easier try a half lunge, or less weight.

Rotating Plank with Reverse Fly

  • Start in a side plank position with your feet staggered (your top foot should be forward)
  • Grab the weight and bring it up to the sky then lower it to the ground under your chest.
  • Rotate into a side plank on the opposite side without breaking your plank position.
  • Lift the weight again. That’s 1 rep.
  • To make it easier try a plank from your knees or a lighter weight, like a soup can or water bottle.

Remember: something is better than nothing!
