Quick & simpElle workout #1

If you’re looking for a 30 minute workout then I have a quick and simpElle (see what I did there?! lol) one for you here! It’s a short and sweet full body cardio blast that can be done anytime and anywhere as no equipment is needed. The exercises are some of my favourites…simple, but effective!

If you need to know how to do a particular exercise you can check out my Instagram for the individual breakdowns, get in touch with me directly or consult our good friend google 😉 what did we do before google existed, huh?!

The entire workout will take a maximum of 30 minutes to complete if you choose the intermediate / advanced option allowing for a few minutes recovery. If you choose the beginner option…it’s a maximum of 15 minutes.

So give it a go now, or pin it for later!

The 30 Minute Workout:

  • Complete the first exercise for one minute followed by the second exercise for 30 secs (i.e one minute of squats, 30s squat jumps)
  • rest 30-45s between each pair of exercises
  • Beginners complete each pair of exercises 2 times
  • Intermediate / Advanced complete each pair of exercises up to 4 times
  • To increase the intensity, reduce recovery time

I’m pretty sure this workout was inspired by my time working as a Nike Training Club (NTC) Instructor <3 …the NTC app was like a Personal Trainer in your phone and when it launched it was the only of it’s kind but these days there are a lot more options out there (check this one out). You can pin this workout for use on another day or just give it a go right now… let me know if you try it and what you think!

P.S Safety always comes first. If you are new to exercise ensure you seek advice from your GP. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids, wear appropriate clothing and carry out drills in a suitable space. Technique is paramount, and nothing should hurt. Should you experience pain, discomfort, nausea, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath etc, STOP and consult your GP.
