My 5 Minute Fitness Commitment

Okay, think of all the things that you could do in 5 minutes. Listen to a great song? Clean out the trash from your purse? Scroll through Instagram/Twitter/Facebook/Pinterest/Tumblr etc.? Now think about using those simple 5 minutes to do something you’ll thank yourself for later. With a schedule as crazy and unpredictable as mine, keeping up with my fitness routine is getting harder and harder to do. So this year, I don’t have some crazy New Year’s Resolution (read my resolutions here!) to go to the gym 5 times a week that I know I can’t keep. Instead, I have a 5 Minute Fitness Commitment that I can do every day. It’s a quick and easy routine that I can do just about anywhere (no weights or fancy gym required)! Just good old fashioned blood, sweat, and tears. (Minus the blood and tears.)

Jumping Jacks

Jumping jacks are great for cardio and getting your heart rate up! I like to do a couple sets before I start the rest of my mini-workout to get my blood flowing! They help me get pumped and wake up my muscles.

Push Ups

I know you guys made fun of my pushups on Instagram, but come on- at least I’m trying, right? Pushups are great for my arms and core. I try to do a set of 20, but by the year maybe I’ll be able to do 50!

Sit Ups

Sit-ups, crunches, ab killers, whatever you call them- they’re the magic makers. Combine a sit-up with your legs extended in and out and you’ve got yourself a great little workout. I try to do as many as I can to a chorus of whatever song I’m loving at the moment! (PS: If you sing along it goes by faster!)

Knee Touch

Also great for cardio, knee touches are like a standing crunch while running in place! Double duty (which is great) and you can add a little extra burn by doing them on your tippy-toes!

Squats

Oh, squats. I have a love/hate relationship with squats. I know my butt will never match that of Kim K. or JLO, but a girl can dream, right? The important thing to remember is to tone what you have, and I want this lil butt of mine looking fine for 2017!

And there you have it!  My 5 Minute Fitness Commitment. I try to do each move for a minute each, to total my 5 minutes. Remember, I’m not a fitness expert, I’m just a girl, standing in front of a pair of jeans, asking them to make my butt look good. So put on your workout jams, grab a friend and get your 5-minute sweat on! You’ll thank yourself later, I promise.
