You don’t have to run for hours on end to get fitter. And let’s face it – in this day and age we rarely have time to do that anyway. Being a busy working mum of two means my exercise time is limited, so I’m going to post some snappy sessions that I do that hopefully will help others get fitter as well.
Try this 20-minute workout (you will need a skipping rope and medicine ball and a set of stairs):
– 2minutes skipping, walking or jogging on the spot and stretch for warm-up;
– find some stairs and run or walk up them, jog or walk back to the start then go again. Do five loops.
– skip for 1min then throw the medicine ball off the chest against a wall hard and fast at close range for 45 sec, have a 10-sec breather then repeat the set four more times.
– walk a minute or two and stretch down
