It feels like there is never enough time in the day, and sometimes the last thing you want to do is squeeze in a workout somewhere in your busy schedule. But even moving your body for 5-10 minutes is better than not exercising at all! It may not seem like it, but you can accomplish more than you’d think after just a few minutes of movement, especially using hybrid fitness workouts. Instead of typing into google “what exercises are the best to lose weight the quickest?” you should try Hybrid Fitness!
Hybrid exercises combine two exercises that flow well together so that you can work more muscles and get more bang for your buck! Maximize your workout and optimize your time so that you can get the most out of each workout. You’ll be working two major muscles while also raising your heart rate, which increases your fat burn while also strengthening, toning, and sculpting your body. It also creates a great after-burn, so your body continues to burn calories even after your workout.
Hybrid workouts are done in 20-second intervals, for as many minutes as you can spare for a workout. Whether you have 10 minutes or 25 minutes, this workout will work for you! Start by setting a timer for 20-seconds. You will complete one move for 20 seconds, move straight to the next move for 20 seconds, then rest 20 seconds before repeating. Complete 5 rounds, then rest 1-2 minutes and move on to the next series. If you're short on time that day, you can do 2 or 3 of the circuits, and it should take you about 10-15 minutes to complete!
Here’s an example of what exercises you can do to lose weight the quickest with hybrid fitness.
Bonus: to add in extra cardio, you can add in a 20-second sprint to any of these circuits or to a couple of them to get your heart rate up.
Pro Tip: Take it slow your first time through and get used to the movements, slowly build your strength and endurance, and soon you’ll be flying through these workouts and feeling the burn!
