If you’ve been making more trips to the pantry than actually going to the gym during Phase 2, we feel you. For some of us working from home, venturing out to exercise takes a little extra effort especially when the couch is within reach. But here’s the good news for busy mummies — you can still get a solid workout on your abs, butt, and thighs without having to head out.
Just follow this AMRAP plan (which stands for “as many reps as possible”), designed by the fitness directors at Momentum Bootcamps. Here’s how it works: In 15 minutes – excluding five minutes of warm-up and five minutes of cool-down – you will do as many rounds of a single- or several exercises as possible in a short period of time. The benefits? You’ll torch calories and sculpt muscles all over.
We know you can’t wait to kick off 15-minutes of non-stop reps, but here’s what you’ll check off first before starting your workout:
- Tools: An exercise mat and a reliable stopwatch to keep count of how many rounds you can do – then aim to beat that the next time.
- Warm-up: For five minutes, do skipping, high knees, butts kicks and some dynamic stretching. This will get your body prepared for the workout ahead.
- Cool-down: Spend five minutes doing light stretching to relax your muscles and lower your heart rate.
Ready? Simply follow the steps below to get the most out of 15 minutes.
