This week I came across an article entitled “The Only 12 Exercises You Need to Get in Shape” and whilst all 12 exercises were perfectly valid I couldn’t help thinking that 12 was an awful lot of exercises to have to do!
So, in this post, I give you just 5 exercises that you need to get you into shape!
The common factors running through these exercises is that they all:
- Work your Core muscles
- Work large muscle groups, which means you burn more calories and your body shape changes more rapidly
- Work way more than just a couple of muscle groups
- Help you with your every-day activities such as lifting things, getting up and down, climbing stairs…..
- Can be done in short workouts of 30mins (you will need to do the workouts approx 3 x week)
So, here they are, in short video format, the 5 exercises that will get you in shape…..
3. Press Ups
4. Pull Ups
So there you have it, 5 top exercises for you to perform 2-3 times a week for 4 weeks making sure that you increase any weights you use by approx 10% each week.
Try these for 4 weeks and let me know what differences you feel in your body shape and strength and then we can look at how to continue improving you over the next 4 weeks.
