Multitasking Workouts For Busy Schedules

By Trinisha Richardson


In a world of multitasking,  it is only fitting that we would need to adjust our fitness regimens to our busy schedule.  We barely have time to do all of our other obligations more often than not having to do multiple tasks at the same time to complete them all.  With all this in mind, we can conclude that we have a bare minimum time frame for workouts, and the longer the duration of the exercise, the less likely we are to complete it.  Instead of not working out because we’re lazy, we now avoid fitness due to work overload.  How ironic.


When you use multitasking workouts, not only do you save time, but you only have a small number of different motions to do making them easier to remember.  You only need about 15-20 minutes to do these exercises three to five days a week, and the time goes by so quickly that sometimes, it doesn’t even feel like your working out until you see results.  Once you have you workouts that multitask, the only thing you have to find time to do is cardio.  I’m sure you can find creative cardio workouts that multitask like taking the stairs instead of the elevator every time you need to move from one floor to the other or parking far away from your destination so you have to walk.
