A Super Quick Fully Body Workout for Busy Moms and Travel

Sometimes you just don't have time to get in a long winded workout. That's okay, a short strength workout could be just as effective for building muscles and losing weight. Studies show that weight training can help boost your metabolism for up to 38 hours post workout (source).

Check with your doctor before starting any exercise program.

This bodyweight strength training workout is quick, effective and can be done almost anywhere.

This is my go-to workout when:

  • The entire day has passed and I didn't get in a workout.

  • I am just not going to make it out of the house.

  • It's time to workout and also time for my babe to run around in circles.

  • It's a travel day.

I start each of my workouts with a short meditation ✨.
