Total Body Workouts To Maximize Exercise Time

We live in a world that is constantly in motion. Most of us rarely have the time to do what we like, or what we need to do. Gym time may be a commodity for you, but there are ways to make the most out of every minute you spend working out, whether it is in the gym or in the privacy of your own home.
With a total body work out, you can rest assured that you are doing everything your body needs to stay fit while maximizing the impact of every second you spend working out. There are many total body work outs to choose from, ranging from low impact yoga to things that are more high impact.

DDP Yoga
Created by a former professional wrestler, this type of yoga uses dynamic resistance to help you burn calories and work your whole body while still being low impact. This program was created specifically for those with back, knee and joint problems to help them regain flexibility and strength, without overdoing it. But even if you are not suffering from any sort of joint pain you can still see results and pack a full body work out into 30 minutes with DDP Yoga.

CrossFit WOD

Crossfit is one of the newer total body work outs, but it makes sure that you work each and every muscle to its fullest. Crossfit is not for the faint of heart, and generally requires a higher fitness level before beginning. 20 minute work outs involve you completing a set of tasks like pull ups, jumping rope, and lifting weights. These are done in rounds with a certain number of reps required for each round. While this isn’t a beginner’s level course, Crossfit has shown huge results with those who are able to keep up. With Crossfit, it is important to take part in the class to learn proper form. Crossfit is also very big on motivation, and the class environment helps you to stay focused and motivated as well as to help others.

If you are not someone who wants to stick to a set routine each and every work out, then you can easily build your own total body work outs at home. Pushups are the most effective work out for arms and chest, and something that does not require the use of equipment to accomplish. Adding in things like squats for the legs and glutes will help you to work your lower body effectively as well.

Some people may choose to do crunches for their total body work out. Others may choose to do planks. Each exercise works well in its own right and it is truly a matter of preference when you are putting your work out together. Crunches require more arm strength and will work the arms as well, while crunches are often the better choice for beginners.

No matter what work out you choose, with at least 30 minutes you can work out your entire body both quickly and efficiently.
