In this Fitness Friday, Amanda Russell shares a workout that you can fit in no matter how jam-packed your calendar is.

“I just don’t have time to workout”

shutterstock_78995539By Amanda Russell We’ve all said it before. We say “I don’t have time” when life gets busy or when we don’t want to feel guilty about skipping our workout. Let’s be honest, “I don’t have time” is just an excuse, and if that’s the one you prefer to use, that’s okay as long as you are okay with huffing and puffing after a flight of stairs or not feeling your best in a pair of snug fitting jeans! I’ve created the following workout for the next time your life gets so insanely busy that you just can’t fathom getting a workout in! This is LESS THAN 5 minutes – and I promise, it will end up making you more energized, productive and focused, so I like to think it actually creates more time for you. All you need is yourself, you can do this right in front of your computer right now! Try it and let me know how it goes. Post your comments in the comments section below.
