Fit and Fabulous Fifteen Minutes.

Pressed for time? That’s no reason to skip your workout! You can get in a very good workout in 15-20 minutes. I don’t care how busy you are, you can spare 15 minutes somewhere in your day. It may take a little planning or shifting in your schedule, but if you can find 15 minutes, the workout I am about to give you will kick your butt.

This workout can be done at home or the office. All you need is a pull up bar and your own body weight. That’s it!

Now let’s get to this CrossFit inspired workout.

Fifteen Minutes of FUN!

Complete the following 3 exercises as many reps as possible in 15 minutes.

3  Pull ups

Position A for your pull up.

Position B of your pull up. Return to the start position. That’s one rep.

6 push ups

Position A for your push up. Be sure to keep your core tight, back straight, and butt down.

Position B for your push up. Be sure core stays tight. Return to the top for one rep.

9 Squats

Position A for your squat. Feet shoulder width apart. Toes pointed forward.

Position B for your squat. Sit back into your heals, drop your butt, keep your back straight and chest up. Make sure your knees don’t go past your toes and that they do not cave inward. Return to position A for one rep.

At the end of the 15 minutes I was soaked in sweat, my arms were shaky, and my butt was sore. I completed just over 16 rounds. That’s 48 pull ups, 96 push ups, and 144 squats. Not too shabby of a workout for 15 minutes! And believe me, I will be sore tomorrow. How many rounds do you think you can do?

Where will you find your 15 minutes?
