Ten Minute Workouts.


Mini ten minute workouts are a great way to keep your fitness and conditioning levels up in between your main workouts or personal training sessions.

They are also a fantastic – and time effective – way to train when you are away on business or on holiday.

Ten minute workouts keep stress levels under control, and help preserve muscle and maintain metabolism, so they are ideal for when you are less active than usual, or living out of a suitcase.

Aim to complete three ten minute workouts a week when you are away.

Even if you only manage to fit in one or two mini workouts, your body will be thankful for it when you return to your main training!


Here is a ten minute workout to get you started.

It can be done almost anywhere and you don’t need any equipment, other than a clock or stopwatch.

It only involves three exercises, but will keep most of the major muscles ‘ticking over’.


10 minute body weight workout.

  • Perform as many body weight squats as you can in 2 minutes
  • Rest for 2 minutes
  • Perform as many press ups as you can in 2 minutes
  • Rest for 2 minutes
  • Perform as many sit ups as you can in 2 minutes.


Rest as little or as often as you need to during the two minute work periods.

Don’t worry if the pace slows a bit, the important thing is to try and keep your body working through the entire set.

Substitute the press ups for box press ups?at any stage if you need to.

Keep a note of how many reps you manage for each exercise, and then aim to beat those numbers on your next mini workout!


Good luck and happy training!
