Get Your Sweat on With This 21-Minute Workout

As a working mom it can often be difficult to find time to workout. Between dropping the kids off at school, going to work, picking the kids up, fixing dinner and getting everyone ready for bed, the last thing I usually want to do is go to the gym!

 
Lately I’ve found incorporating short, at home workouts into my daily routine has been the easiest way for me to get my sweat on. A quick 20-30 minute daily workout 4 to 5 times a week seems to be my sweet spot because it’s hard for me to make an excuse as to why I can’t squeeze that into my day.
 
Here is one of my go-to workouts. It only takes 21 minutes and doesn’t require any equipment, but I work up an awesome sweat and feel great when I’m finished!

21-Minute Timed Workout

Remember to go at your own pace, take breaks if you need to and most of all drink enough water throughout your day. I also spend a few minutes when I’m finished doing some stretching and cooling down.

Now grab your iPhone timer, turn on some music and get your sweat on! Don’t forget to let me know what you think!
