41fa6867bbde25310c146df57baca767Hello everyone and TGIF! Today I want to share a new “Fitness Friday” post with a suggestion for a quick, effective workout for the days you have an hour or less to follow your fitness routine. I try to incorporate different workouts that tone multiple muscles, so I get the most of my workout for that day. Like this post if you want more quick workout suggestions!

You can alter this workout to whatever fits your schedule best. Whether you complete the workout early in the morning or in the evening is up to you.

Repeat three times:

Cardio: 50 jumping jacks

Legs: 25 squats (while holding a 5 to 10 pound weight)

Legs: 25 lunges (for each leg while holding a 5 to 10 pound weight)

Cardio: 50 jumping jacks

Abs: 25 reverse crunches

Abs: 50-second plank

Cardio: 50 jumping jacks

Arms: 25 push-ups (you can do regular or the modified version using your knees for support)

Arms: 25 triceps dips

Cardio: 50 jumping jacks

I always recommend stretching for at least 15 minutes after completing the workout, or you can follow up with 15 to 20 minutes of yoga. Just make sure you give your body enough time to recover from your workout.

What are your favorite workouts that are both quick and effective? Make sure to tweet me or leave a comment below! Enjoy the rest of your day and I will talk to you all on Monday!
