Bored or unmotivated by your workout? Try this..


We all get a bit bored by the same ol routine now and then. It can even stop us from working out. Today, to get yourself pumped up again and back on track, set up a 5 minute circuit with your favorite activities, (couch-sitting doesn’t qualify :-) .

Try this routine:

  • 1st 5 minutes- Start with with my 5 Minutes to Fitness workout to get warmed up
  • 2nd 5 minutes- Do jumprope, kickboxing or dance, or alternate all 3 switching up every 30 or 60 seconds
  • 3rd 5 minutes- Do an advanced set of my 5 Minutes to Fitness workout >
  • 4th 5 minutes- Do a set of your favorite yoga moves, martial arts, sprints, leg or ab exercises

This 20 minute routine will give you a total body workout and cardio, incorporate the things you like, give you choices, break up the monotony and will motivate you to find new routines.  Enjoy!

Let me know how you do.
