Physical Wellness: Mastering the Lunch Time Workout

There are some days that I just cannot fit a workout in at any other time other than during my lunch hour, especially during these cold winter months. But it is a tricky balance of making the most of the one hour that you have during lunch to get a workout in. I have been doing lunch workouts for the past couple of months and I have put together a good routine for 2 different types of workouts that doesn’t take too long and doesn’t get you too sweaty. Especially if you are like me and you have ridiculously long, thick hair so taking a shower after a workout means that you would essentially walk to the gym and walk straight to the showers.

Workout 1:  Cardio 

3 rounds of “Torture” Circuits (10 box jumps, 10 burpees, 10 pushups, 10 situps, 10 Russian twists)

20 minutes of walking/elliptical – to make it more challenging, increase the incline/resistance.

A quick cool down and stretch

Workout 2:  Lifting 

Deadlifts and Squats 3 sets of 8

Kettle bell swings + side drops 3 sets of 10

Killer Calf Raises (30 parallel, 30 turned out, and 30 turned in)

Quick Abs (5 situps w/ a medicine ball, 5 Russian twists and repeat 6x for a total of 30 reps)

Stretch

What are your favorite lunch time workouts or quick workouts?
