15 minute workout- no frills, all results

If you are pressed for time and need to move out some of that energy from being stuck at the desk or in meetings all day, then I have a quick solution for you involving no equipment. You should do all five exercises for 60 seconds and have three rounds (5 exercises x 60 seconds/exercise x three rounds = 15 minutes).

Here's the basic workout: Burpees - Push-Ups - Squats - Mountain Climbers - Deadlift
Perform each exercise for 60 seconds. Take a one to two minute break between each round of exercises if necessary.

Here are some of the exercises mentioned above:

This is a video about the progressions of Burpees

The next video is about Mountain Climbers and its progressions:
Deadlifts can be performed with any 'dead weight' lying around the home, such as a full backpack, a box of books, bag of kitty litter, whatever.

It's imperative that one should learn proper deadlift, push-up, and squat techniques from an expert before attempting them on your own. Feel free to contact me about setting up sessions to learn these techniques correctly. Sessions can be in person or online via GChat.
