This workout is designed for all of those people who say they would like to exercise, but when push comes to shove:

  1. they don’t have enough money for a gym membership, or
  2. they can’t run because they have bad knees, or
  3. they don’t have enough space in their tiny bachelor apartment.

It’s my No Excuses Workout.

Program Goals:

  • Improved Aerobic & Anaerobic Fitness
  • Accelerated Fat Loss
  • Increased Muscular Strength
  • Correction of Typical Muscular Imbalances

The workout consists of 2 workouts that can be performed twice per week for a total of 4 workouts

The remaining 3 days of the week can be devoted to the walking program outlined in Boomer Bodyweight Workout #1

WORKOUT #1

Perform the following two exercises back to back for 5 minutes with no rest between sets

  • Shuffle LungeMaximum 30 reps total for both legs

One complete circuit of all 3 supersets takes 15 minutes + any rest you take between supersets. Two circuits will take 30 min +. Three circuits will take 45 min+

It’s important to keep rest to an absolute minimum. This is how you are getting the aerobic benefit of the workout.

It’s important to keep rest to an absolute minimum. This is how you are getting the aerobic benefit of the workout.

And remember to go at your own pace. The goal is to get healthy.

If you are a beginner, it is most important to learn how to perform the exercise well before picking up the intensity. Use some common sense people.

For advanced trainees, focus on reducing rest time and increasing the difficulty of the exercise.
