10-minute full body workouts at home
My experience with 10-minute full body workouts at home:
I absolutely love the freedom of working out at home! As a busy business owner, husband and a new dad my priorities have shifted. Working out and going to the gym used to be the number 1 on my to-do list however, now with a beautiful wife and daughter I don’t have the time to go to the gym like I used to.
Honestly, I don’t want to be at the gym and away from my family but I also don’t want to get fat. This is where 10 minute full body workouts at home saved me!
With all of this in mind I decided to try working out at home for a month and see how it went…
After 4 weeks of home workouts, ranging between 7- 10 minutes of high intensity, little to no rest breaks and attention to strength and cardio movements I’m happy to say that I lost weight and feel great!
With these 10 minute full body workouts at home I have been able to achieve my fitness goals and be with my family at the same time.
Check out the workouts I did below and see more information on the benefits of a full body workout at home.
What are the benefits of a full body workout at home?
A doctor answering a question from the Mayo Clinic website wrote that the Department of Health and Human Services recommends healthy adults get 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week.
Now I’ve never been accused of being good at math but if I do a 10-minute workout every day I will be at 70 minutes for the week.
That’s pretty close and, some more math, tells me that 70 out of 75 is 93%. I can’t speak for you but being a C student throughout high school I would be thrilled to receive a 93% for anything!
How to decide what full body workout to do?
I switch it up everyday and do a variety of exercises ranging between yoga, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), strength, cardio and mobility.
I don’t decide what workout I am going to do until right before I work out. Depending how I feel will dictate which kind of workout I choose.
If I feel good and mobile, I will do a HIIT workout, if I feel slow and sluggish, I will do a yoga or strength workout, something that is a little slower paced.
Finally, I know that I need to challenge myself sometimes even if I’m not feeling super excited about doing a hard workout.
I will give it a try and often once I get started it’s easy to get through it because I know I only have 10 minutes!
