4 Minutes Workout

Hey guys,

Today I will take you through a 4 minute workout that replaces one hour in the gym.

An exhausting workout in the gym doesn’t suit everyone and let’s be honest, sometimes we don’t have time for it. I’m going take you through quick interval training that is really effective. Due to it’s high pace, a large number of calories is burned in a short period. These 5 exercises will not take even 5 minutes.

EXERCISE 1- SQUATS

  • Place your feet shoulder-width apart or slightly wider.

  • Crouch as low as possible, keeping your back straight.
  • Return to the initial position, straining the butt and leg muscles.

You need to repeat this simple exercise for only 60 seconds. Losing weight in certain problem areas such as legs, buttocks and hips is probably the most prevalent issue in fitness.
