Miranda’s 15 Minute Workout

Miranda’s 15 Minute Workout

Like most busy working women and mothers, I can find it difficult to fit everything into the day, and more often than not exercise can get relegated to the bottom of the list. When I don’t exercise I don’t feel my best, so for me it’s important to capture a minimum of at least 15 minutes of focused exercise a day.

Generally when exercising I like to mix it up, with everything from resistance training to yoga, hiking to going for a bike ride with my son. But when I’m short on time, working long hours or travelling, I’ve developed a 15-minute workout routine that targets all areas, needs no equipment and can be easily done at home or in a hotel room. Not only does it give you a great workout, but it also increases your energy levels and improves concentration!

I start with a spritz of KORA Organics Energising Citrus Mist, and take three deep breaths setting my intention, followed by a 1-minute stretch (legs, arms and neck).

Recovery – remember to rest for 10 seconds in between exercise.

  • 1 minute of push ups
  • 1 minute plank (or 2 x 30 second holds for beginners)
  • 1 minute of squats
  • 1 minute of jumping jacks (cardio burst)
  • 1 minute of left leg raises
  • 1 minute of bicycle crunches
  • 1 minute of right leg raises
  • 1 minute bridge (hold 30 seconds, pulse 30 seconds)
  • 1 minute of jumping jacks (cardio burst)
  • 1 minute of alternating lunges
  • 1 minute wall sit
  • 1 minute of mountain climbers
  • 1 minute of jumping jacks (cardio burst)

Stretch it out and remember to rehydrate. You’ll find even though this is a quick routine, it will work out your arms, abs, legs and butt and will also strengthen your core.

P.S. This can be quite an intense workout, so remember to consult your healthcare professional before trying any new exercise regimes.
