Three 15 minute workouts for when you don't have time!


Most of us go into new goals with good intentions. With a plan. With an idea of how things are going to go!

But this is also where most of us fail. We don't create backup plans. We don't come up with ideas in case things don't go our way.

Here's an example. Person X has a goal to workout for 45 minutes, 3 days a week. However, they don't come with a backup plan, so if they can't find time for their 45 minute workout, they find themselves skipping a workout all together instead of doing something else.

A backup plan for Person X could be as simple as doing one 15 minute workout, or doing a set of 10 squats every hour throughout the day. They wouldn't be getting in their 45 minute workout, but wouldn't be sacrificing their exercise!

So that's why today I'm providing you with three 15 minute workouts for those days when you are short on time!

3 to 6 rounds of the following

10 squats

8 lunges per leg

15 glute bridges

10 pushups

8 single arm dumbbell rows each side

15 supermans

8 devil's press

Workout #3

10 split squats per leg

8 windmills per wide

12 superman with reach

30 seconds side plank each side

About the Author

Laura Su, BS Exercise Science, Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, Powerlifter, Entreprenuer

I'm just a girl who fell in love with movement in high school and now wants to bring the freedom that exercise brings to everyone else.

I started working out with the desire to look a certain way but eventually found the sense of accomplishment and clarity that training for performance brought. Now I want to help everyone, especially women, to learn how to train and eat for their health and performance and realize that when you do that, the looks you desire are simply a positive side effect.

In my spare time, I enjoy powerlifting, horseback riding, sleeping, and hanging out with my boyfriend. I hope you enjoy my posts and keep reading along!
