Simple Workout Routines You Can Squeeze Into Your Busy Schedule

A working girl with a tight schedule that achieves her goals is definitely someone to admire. But someone with the same busy schedule and still manages to make time to work out for a healthier body and mind is someone to emulate. If you’re not the latter, then read on because we’ve listed 5 easy workout routines you can squeeze into your schedule.

Planks

This routine is known and loved by many for a very good reason; it’s simple but targets so many muscles of the body. It helps develop the muscles on your neck, shoulder and biceps, as well as improve your posture and balance. Just make sure you do it correctly to get its full benefits – especially that coveted flat tummy.

Squats

If you work 9 to 5 mostly on your chair, this is the best workout you can do to mobilize those muscles that are inactive when sitting down. Squats are also simple and straightforward, as it enhances your legs, buttocks and stomach. More importantly, it strengthens the muscles around your knees to protect them. So, if you want a JLo-like booty, add this to your workout stat!
