8 minute workouts
Arichive : 8 minute workouts
While most people can find 30 to 60 minutes to train a couple times per week, there will be days where things get so busy you’ll only have 10 minutes to spare. Well, 10 minutes is way better than nothing! In fact, a recent study showed that a 10-minute workout had the same post-workout metabolic boost as a 30-minute workout, though the 30-minute workout burned more total calories during the session due to the higher exercise volume.
The key with a shorter workout is intensity. With such a low total exercise volume, you really have to push yourself outside of your comfort zone and take little to no rest between exercises in order to get a good workout.
How to Do It
Alternate between 50 seconds of hard work and 10 seconds or rest for each exercise in the following bodyweight circuit.
Perform as many reps as you can with perfect form within each 50-second work period. If you need to rest or pause at any point, please do so. Your goal is to eventually be able to continuously work for the full 50 seconds without stopping.
