Is it possible to get fit in just 15 minutes? With this coffee break workout, you’ll burn calories and sculpt lean muscle in no time! This quick workout is brought to you by Danskin Now.
15 minutes is such a small part of your day. These little “coffee breaks” are usually spent looking at your phone and checking Instagram for the 278th time that day, but we’re challenging you to spend your next coffee break getting active!
The ideal coffee break workout takes no longer than 15 minutes but still packs a calorie-burning punch. It won’t get you too sweaty (well, maybe a little bit) so it can also be done in your everyday clothes! Of course, if your everday clothes include activewear, that’s always a bonus. Thankfully with Danskin Now, you can easily transition your work outfit to your gym outfit to your going-out outfit. Stylish pieces like mesh leggings and lightweight pullovers take you from home to the gym and to work! Plus, your significant other can’t get mad at you for spending all your money on more gym clothes – the line from Danskin Now is available at Walmart and everything is under $30. How amazing is that?!
Get the look!
So, next time you have 15 minutes to spare, do this fun coffee break workout! Like everything in life, it’s way better when it’s done with a friend. So grab a partner and get moving!
Brace your core, holding your abs nice and tight. Step back into a lunge, reaching a 90-degree angle with your front and back legs. Powering through your front foot, come to a standing position on your front leg and kick forward with your back leg. Immediately drop back down into a lunge. Repeat for 30 seconds, then switch sides!
Come into a plank position with your hands directly beneath your shoulders, creating a straight line with your body from the top of your head down through the soles of your feet. Hold for 10 seconds, then perform a push-up, lowering your chest to the ground and pressing back up into a plank hold. Repeat the push-up every 10 seconds for 1 minute!
Stand up nice and tall with your feet close together (no more than 6 inches apart). Perform a squat, bending your knees and lowering down until your legs are at a 90-degree angle. Pop up and place your feet a little bit further apart (hip width or a little wider) and do a squat in this position. Again, pop up out of the squat and place your feet even wider, into a sumo squat position with your toes pointed out. Do a squat here, then go back through the movements, moving your feet back to hip width and squatting, then finishing with a narrow-stance squat. Repeat the in-and-out-and-in movements for 1 minute!
Single-Leg Tricep Dips
Find a bench or something similar and place your hands on the edge, fingers facing forward. Bend one leg at 90 degrees and extend the other leg straight out. Lower yourself down, keeping your body close to the bench, then press yourself back up. Switch legs after 30 seconds!
Quick feet + Vertical Jumps
Bend your knees and chop your feet as quickly as possible, running in place. Do this for 10 seconds, then jump into the air as high as you can. As soon as you land, start chopping your feet again. Repeat the vertical jump every 10 seconds for 1 minute.
Do all of these movements, then rest 1 minute. Repeat the circuit 2 more times for 3 rounds total!
