Ten Minute Full Body Workout That Anyone Can Do

Ten Minute Full Body Workout That Anyone Can Do

10 minute bodyweight workout

The biggest problem for most people, when it comes to growing muscle and getting into shape, is simply sticking to their training objectives. This is called as ‘workout adherence’ and simply indicates your capability to stick at a workout program long enough to see the results that you desire.

Even a poorly designed training program can help you to build muscle and get results if you just stick at it. And it is much better to perform a bad workout for a long period of time than it is to perform the best workout possible for a day and then give up.

But this is something a lot of people don’t really contemplate when they plan to get into shape. Too often they will come up with routines that involve training for an hour each session, five times a week. If you are already feeling too tired to be particularly active, if you’re already stressed with work, trying to fit in five hours of exercise a week is a huge ask. This is particularly true when you consider that you are probably going to visit the gym.

This is where a bodyweight workout training can come in so handy. Especially, if you use a workout that hits the entire body in a single session, only takes 10 minutes and can be done anywhere. Use this workout first thing in the morning before work and before you go in the shower. Now you have a routine that really is just ten minutes and that no one should have any problem sticking with.

What does that workout look like?

This workout is made up of three exercises that together will train the entire body while also providing some cardio benefit. Those three exercises are:

– Pull Ups
– Press Ups
– Jumping Squats

Perform each exercise and then move straight onto the next exercise when you finish without break. You can rest after the jumping squats for one minute before starting the routine again and going for 3 sets. It should take around 10-15 minutes.

This routine hits all the major muscles in the body because it mimics a more involved split that bodybuilders use called PPL (Push, Pull, Leg). Pull-ups hit the biceps, the abs and your lats, the broad flat muscle located on either side of your back. Push-ups train the chest muscles, the triceps and the shoulders. While jumping squats hit the entire lower body and provide the cardio.

Now, this workout isn’t going to be enough to help you build those huge muscles overnight. Of course, it can burn your fat and it can tone your muscles. But in order for you to really train you need to use heavier weights performed more slowly - for longer duration of time.
