Lack of time and equipment is not an excuse not to train. With a little room to do a broad jump, you’ve got everything you need.
WHAT IT IS
A 15-minute total-body workout from L.A.-based celebrity trainer Andy McDermott. It combines broad jumps, pushups, lunges, and mountain climbers to work arms and legs as well as explosivity and endurance. Try it on a day when you don’t have much time and you’ll still feel like you got a full workout. Best of all, there’s no equipment required.
WHY IT WORKS
A proper broad jump is a totalbody move and recruits a significant amount of fast-twitch muscle fiber. Starting the circuit with broad jumps excites the central nervous system for the work ahead. …
DIRECTIONS: Set a timer for 15 minutes and perform the following circuit continuously, resting as little as possible until the time is up.
|Single-arm Eccentric Pushup*||10|
|Mountain Climber||30 sec.|
*Use one arm to lower your body, two to explode back up. As a note on form, McDermott says, “Head to heel, straight as steel.”
