20 Minute Full Body Home Workout

It’s the coldest time of the year and you don’t want to drive to the gym, let alone go on a jog around the neighborhood. What’s your next best solution? A quick, 20-25 minute full body, fat burning, muscle building home workout. There are times where I’d rather light myself on fire and run to the nearest body of water than run on a treadmill for 30 minutes. That’s why I put together a very simple, yet effective, at home workout that will boost your metabolism, tax your muscles, and best of all, save a lot of time and hassle.

Take a 30 second break between each set and each exercise. If you find the workout too easy you can perform two exercises in a row and then take a 30 second break, or increase the reps/time of each exercise.

1. 100 Push-Ups

Perform 5 sets of 20 pushups with a 30 second break between each set.
or
Perform 10 sets of 10 pushups with a 30 second break between each set.

2. 100 Bodyweight Squats

Perform 5 sets of 20 squats with a 30 second break between each set. If you want to make it harder, jump at the end of each squat and once you land go right back into your squat.

3. 100 Reverse Lunges

Perform 5 sets of 20 reverse lunges, alternating legs, and make sure you drop that back knee all the way to the floor before returning to the starting position.

4. Planks

Perform 5 sets of 30 second planks with a 30 second break between each set.

5. 100 Leg Raises

Laying on your back, raise both of your legs keeping your legs straight until your legs make a 90 degree angle with your torso. Perform 5 sets of 20 reps, or 10 sets of 10 reps, taking a 30 second break between each set.
