Workout for When You Don’t Feel Like Working out

Here’s a fun workout for those days when you just don’t feel like exercising.

Even if you’re mad-keen on making fitness gains, it’s actually optimal for your progress to take a break from intense workouts from time to time, so there’s no need to think of this a slacking off. All you’re doing is taking the kind of exercise that you need at this time.

It only takes 15 minutes to do and we only do each exercise for 40 seconds, so it flies by. But at the same time you are still doing something great for your body, even just 15 minutes of moving around can make a big difference to how you feel and it’s far better for your fitness than doing nothing at all.

Every day doesn’t have to be about setting new records for yourself or even putting 100% into your workout. There will be days when that’s just not going to happen and on days when you really don’t feel like working out, making sure you at least do something, is something you should be very proud of.

There’s no jumping in this workout, so you don’t need training shoes, just wear comfortable clothes you can easily move around in.

We’ll do each exercise for 40 seconds then take a quick 10-second break before moving on to the next move.
