In this exercise video Meredith is taking you through a full body, seated strength training routine for time in just 20 min!
Timed exercise routines are great not only to build strength here but also to keep your heart rate going at a consistent pace. We tend to take longer breaks the more tired we get when exercising and doing repetitions that are timed intervals is a great way to keep the cardiovascular system engaged throughout the whole routine.
This workout is all seated and low impact so it’s also perfect for anyone just starting out or who may have an easier time building strength and getting a good workout in while seated. We are also using weights as well but you can always substitute weights using bottles of water or cans of soup for resistance. You can also do this routine without weights to benefit from the range of motion as well.
If you’re looking to put in a little more work you can always go through this routine twice and benefit from the extra effort you’re putting in!
Remember to only do movements that you are comfortable with and never force anything that causes pain or discomfort. Also don’t forget to drink lots of water and have a great workout!
