A 5 Minute Workout for your Weekend Festivities

We all know you’re going to be eating all kinds of great summer party foods this weekend…if you haven’t already. Even though we’ve been detoxing and clearing out the old energies all last month with healthy foods and new habits, there’s no reason why we can’t enjoy a little patriotic celebrating among friends.

Just make sure to balance it out with some quick but intense workouts to enjoy the festivities guilt free.  If you feel like you don’t even have time for a trip to the gym or your usual spin class, here’s a no excuse 5 minute plan:

  • 1 minute of alternating walking lunges (add 10lb weights for a challenge)
  • 30 seconds jumping jacks
  • 30 seconds push-ups
  • 30 seconds burpees
  • 30 seconds squats
  • 1 minute alternating lunges
  • 30 seconds tricep dips
  • 30 seconds plank

Do all these exercises without rest between them and then let me know if 5 minutes isn’t enough to get a workout in! Then go enjoy all your 4th of July weekend favorites!
