Everyday Intervals to the Rescue

The kids are on summer break and it's harder to get to the gym these days. Maybe you're visiting relatives or on a road trip. Try this eight-minute living room/hotel room workout to maintain your fitness during the summer months.

Set your phone timer for 60 seconds. Do as many reps of each exercise as you can for a minute before moving onto the next.

Low Squat Jump
Stand with feet hip width apart, lower into squat, jump straight up.

Plank Jack
Start in plank, jump feet out and in

Super Woman
Lying face down, lift torso and legs off floor

Tricep Dip
Sit on floor, knees bent, palms on floor directly below shoulder. Lift hips off floor, bend and straighten elbows.  

Up, Up, Down, Down
Start on floor in forearm plank. Lift right arm to plant palm on floor, repeat left. Return to start.

In and Out Abs
Lie faceup on floor, hands under tailbone, knees bent 90 degrees, feet in air. Straighten legs to a 45 degree angle, bring back to start.

Low Jacks 
Stand with feet wider than hips, lower into squat. Staying low, jump feet out and in. 

Plank Hold
Hold plank for one minute 

You can crank out these bodyweight reps anywhere there is enough space to hold a plank and check off all the exercise boxes no matter where you are this summer. 

Stay Active, Keep Moving and
Enjoy Your Food
