If you’ve followed my Instagram (@SamanthaWills ), you will know I have been on a fitness journey for the past 7 months or so.
I travel a lot for work, and used to find myself having to convince said self to go & workout, especially in the midst of jet lag. But not anymore, I look forward to my workouts, especially if I am able to do them as soon as I land / arrive somewhere. I find they help me target jetlag to (hopefully) get on top of it early.
This post is to explain my 'quick-I-have-very-little-to-no-time workout'. This is the bare minimum I would do, it is best if you have access to a gym, but if not, just switch the weight stuff out for additional Push Ups + Tricep Dips using your own body weight as the resistance.
- 20mins Running @ 10km per hour (approx. 6 miles per hour)
(If you have a little bit more then no time, try to hit 30mins)
- 15mins core work
o 200 Ab Crunches (Try 30 at a time & break for 15 secs)
o 20 NormalPush-Ups
o 40 (20 each arm) Bicep curls with 5KG weights
o 20 Triceps (10 each arm) with 5KG weights
o Hold Plank x 4 times for 45 secs each
o Side plank hip dips for 20 reps each side x 2
As I always state, I am not a Personal Trainer & hold nothing but a NSW Drivers license! The above is purely what I do, and what works for me.
As always, eating clean is key also. I eat a lot of fish, salads, crackers for snacks… If I on a clean eating day & I order a burger, I ask for it without the bun, and switch the fries out for salad. It is all about making smarter choices for every meal. If you start doing this, I promise after a week, you will start to see small changes in your body.
Regardless of the benefits of whipping your bodying into shape, sweating it out whips the mind into shape also, I find the treadmill is the place I flesh out ideas I have had, it’s a time with no interruptions & it has brought some of my best projects to life.
Get moving. - SWx
