Combine your strength training and cardio into one workout with this total body Busy Girl Gym Workout that will build strength and get your heart rate up
Hey fitness ladies! We are all busy and so many people are not sure how to make time for their workouts. Here is a helpful hint: workout smarter, not longer, by increasing your intensity. You can get a great workout in a short amount of time by upping the intensity and decreasing the amount of time; Tabatas are an excellent example of this!
Here is a great total-body gym workout when you need to get in and get out in time. From warm-up to cool down, it takes about 40-45 minutes tops, less if you are super-focused and really push your limits.
This Busy Girl Gym Workout is a version of my workout from yesterday. Use enough weight with each exercise to reach failure at the given reps – this will keep the workout intense! Also, use little to no rest between exercises to keep your heart rate elevated. Enjoy!
