I developed a workout that minimizes the amount you work out yet maximizes results. If you are looking to start a workout program but don’t have the time then my “Minimize Workout” program is for you.
Three Body Weight Exercises
To start working out you will need to do three workouts: push ups, sit ups and squats. Be careful to pace yourself at first so you don’t go overboard and please remember that you should consult a doctor before beginning any workout program.
Three Day Workout Cycle
Your workout will be on a 3 day cycle. Depending on your current fitness level you might want to add a day of rest in the cycle from time to time. This is completely up to you but you will be doing only one exercise per day so you’ll have two days to recover between each exercise.
Day 1: Push Ups
Day 2: Sit Ups
Day 3: Squats
I have trigger points set up in my house. Every time I go to the kitchen I drop down and do push ups on Day 1. Every time I go to my living room I do sit ups on Day 2. Every time I go to the bathroom I do squats on Day 3.
Start out with 5 reps. For example, you go to the kitchen, drop down and do 5 push ups. This workout routine is designed to be effective yet not take a lot of time to do. Most people do not have time to workout 45 minutes per day so I created a minimalist workout routine. Remember to pace yourself. If you go in the kitchen 10 times the first day but don’t feel like you can do 25 push ups then stop when you feel like you’ve had enough.
Increase In Strength
Each week you should try to add more and more exercises. If you get to a point where you feel like you could do 10 reps instead of 5 then increase your reps. It literally takes less than a minute to do 10 of any of these exercises. Doubling your reps will not take up too much of your time.
