Sometimes (more like a lot of times) life gets really busy.
And this messes up your whole workout schedule.
Some people decide to skip their workout all together while other beasts like yourself decide to still get a workout in even if it’s not perfect.
When times get busy I like to keep things really simple and only do 3 exercises.
I have a very simple formula to follow and here it is: Push, Pull, Legs
I simply pick one exercise for each and get to work.
- Push: Push ups, dips, handstand push ups, overhead pressing, bench pressing.
- Pull: Pull ups, rows, levers.
- Legs: Squats, deadlifts, lunges, sprints.
You can do these in super-set fashion or circuits.
This is a very minimalist approach to training but it works really well when short on time.
I actually used this formula the other day and did this workout:
1) Ring Muscle Up x 1 + Ring Dips x 5
2) Kettlebell 1 Arm Overhead Press x2 (each arm)
3) Sandbag Loading x 1
Repeat circuit 5 times
I filmed that workout so you can check it out here:
I finished this workout in 30 min and was back home feeling great.
If you are ever on a rush I would invite you to use this simple 3-step formula and do your own minimalist workouts.
Keep Killing Your Monday Beast!
