Before becoming a full time multi-sport and health coach I was a full time personal trainer for 12 years. With that job I would be on the training floor from 6am-sometimes 8pm while simultaneously training for endurance events. So I became very good at getting in efficient workouts in minimal time.

One thing I enjoy doing now is creating time efficient workouts for people to show that you CAN get fit, stay in shape, lose weight, etc. regardless of your busy schedule. One of the best ways to maximize training with minimal time is training with multi-joint/compound movements. Meaning, working multiple muscle groups at one time. I posted a video this week of a Db Lat Pullover to Tricep Extension. This exercise works almost every muscle in your body.

With all this said, I wanted to give you a great time efficient workout that you can do with minimal equipment in about 20 minutes. So here you go! 🙂

Warm Up:
30 Jumping Jacks
20 Reverse Lunge to Trunk Twist (10 each side)
20 Plank Shoulder Taps (10 each side)
12 Spiderman Lunge (6 each side)
Repeat 1-2 times

Main Set: Go through each movement once then repeat
3×20 DB Lat Pullover to Tricep Extension
3×20 DB Squat to Bicep Curl to Shoulder Press
3×20 Push Up Bird Dog (10 each side)
3×30-45sec Side Plank with Db Shoulder ABduction

Db Lat Pullover to Tricep Press

One thing I have become very good at over the years is working with time crunched individuals. Creating “compound” movements to maximize results while minimizing time. This is one of my favorite movements. It is great for opening up your hips, abs, and lats after sitting all day, riding and running. It is also a great addition to any dry land swim workout.
