I already know what you’re thinking: “Ali you work in a health club! How can you not find time to work out? It’s 100 feet from your desk!” Well, you see, I don’t have a good excuse! On those busy days where there are meetings and deadlines, sometimes my blocked out workout time disintegrates. That said, if I only had 20 minutes to workout I absolutely would!
The reason I chose these moves is because they integrate more than one muscle, so I know I’m getting the most bang for my buck. I chose to use dumbbells for the exercises because those are easier to grab, rather than setting up a whole rack. Plus, if I wanted I could go a little heavier with each set to make it more challenging. I know I’m hitting a little bit of everything and going to definitely sweat in a short amount of time. Don’t tell anyone I told you, but sometimes I do this workout on a day when I really don’t want to work out (I mean just kidding this NEVER happens to me ;)). It’s awesome because you get done super-fast and still feel accomplished. Try it!
