I'll be away (the Ukraine) for 6 weeks. I'll also likely be very, very tired, as I will be assisitng my SIL with her newborn twins (she has a surrogate there). I am also 48 and never had children, so I have zero training for what's in store. We'll be in an apartment in uncharted, totally unfamiliar teritory.
I'm trying to put together a small workout that requires no equipment, other than my bodyweight, a blue exercise band and a firewalker loop. If you only had five minutes what exercises would you include? If I'm lucky, I can bump that up to a 10 minutes session (I could also just repeat the five minute routine if it's a good day?). I'm wanting every single second to be significant and am less concerned with cardio. My initial thought for some potential options are: Push ups. Squat with overhead press using the band. Lateral walks with the loop. Lunges with lateral raises and/or scapular retractions using the band. Tricep pushups or dips. Wall sits. Mountain climbers. I'm also beginning to master my headstand, so I can see myself practising those every day. You can see all of these are very quiet exercises, as my room will be in a loft like area and the apartment is very small. I want to get the job done without anyone know I am doing it.
You guys are geniuses. How would you construct a 5 or 10 minute routine that you could do everyday, even when you are totally spent?
I can't figure out what moves will give me the most bang for my ehausted, limited buck. In lieu of having something so small and easily attainable, I can imagine just falling apart during that time. A little routine like this will help me feel like I still have a little bit of control in what will likely be a tornado of life experiences.
ANY and ALL suggestions are welcome. I have a few weeks before I leave and will begin working through potential routines to tweak them to their best and most enjoyable effect.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
