Eight-Minute Workout

pay-2426850_1920The toddler is napping and I went to bed at 9:00 pm last night. I have no excuses about fitting a workout in, except for all the fun writing I’d rather be doing. Solution? An eight-minute workout! (Okay, it’s actually ten if you count the warmup, but I like alliteration, if number alliteration is even a thing).

Start by warming up for 1-2 minutes – dance, jog, sun salutations – whatever works for you!

  1. Eight squats.
  2. Eight jumping jacks.
  3. Eight alternating lunges.
  4. Eight jumping jacks.
  5. Eight push-ups.
  6. Eight plank jacks.
  7. Eight supermans.
  8. Eight plank jacks.

Repeat as many reps as possible (AMRAP) for eight minutes!
