What does the fall season look like for you? For many of us, it’s pretty busy- sometimes too busy to get to the gym. But with these exercises for a quick workout, you can save a trip to the gym without skipping a workout. Refuel after your workouts with ready-to-drink EAS® AdvantEDGE® so you don’t miss a beat!
The gym. Our home away from home, our happy place, our war room. We all love the gym, but sometimes you just can’t make it. By the time you get in your car, get to the gym, do your workout and drive home, you’ve exhausted your only free time in the day and now you’ll be late to your next appointment.
Especially now that summer is coming to an end and it’s back to reality, there’s less and less time to make those journeys to the gym. But thankfully, exercise isn’t regulated only in the gym. Get in a quick workout anywhere you are! These do-anywhere exercises can be done at home, at your friend’s house, in the park, or even at the gym, if you find time to get there!
Don’t forget about your nutrition while you’re on the go either. EAS AdvantEDGE is a line of ready-to-drink protein shakes that will make your life so much easier. No shaker bottles, no messy powders, just grab and go. Enjoy them after a workout, for a snack, or anytime you need an extra boost of protein. You can handle anything when you’re well-prepared, so memorize these moves, grab an EAS AdvantEDGE shake, and let’s work out!
Do a Quick Workout Anywhere With These Moves!
Push-ups are included in basically every work out because they work so well…. but, they can start to get a little stale. Try this push-up remix to for extra strength building! Place your feet on a bench or box and perform a push up with your feet elevated. WHOA, that’s a lot harder. Try it for 15-20 reps!
On your marks. This move will really get those legs burning! Begin with one foot forward, in a half-lunge position. Propel yourself off the front foot into the air, landing on the same foot and sending your back foot back into that half lunge. Go for 30 seconds each side!
Side Plank Crunch
This isn’t your normal plank. This will fire up those obliques and whittle your waistline! Assume a side plank position on your elbow. Stabilize yourself, then draw your top knee to your top elbow. Keep your core tight and stabilized! Try 10-12 reps each side!
Find a set of stairs, a box or a bench and hop to it! Jump with both feet at the same time, bringing your knees up and landing softly with both feet. Continue jumping up if you’re on a flight of stairs, or jump up and then back down if you’re using a bench. Do this move for 1 minute to really get that heart rate up!
This classic exercise works wonders for your abs – and with these extra isometric holds, you’ll feel the burn in a whole new way. On your back, cross your right elbow to your left knee and left elbow to right knee, cycling back and forth. On your 10th rep, hold it on that side for 10 seconds. Cycle again 10 more times, then hold on the opposite side for 10 seconds. Give me 3 holds on each side!
Do these moves all in a row or do 3-4 sets of each one, then move on to the next. Or, order them a la carte and mix and match with your other favorite moves! The most important thing is squeezing in a workout when you can and get committed to training. Whatever your goal is, you gotta #WorkForIt! EAS is there to help with that. EAS AdvantEDGE shakes deliver 15 grams of pure milk protein in just 100 calories, with 22 vitamins and minerals and no fillers. These shakes can travel with you when you’re running to class, to work or to practice.
