Some days are busier than others; time is not always on your side when it comes to getting in the gym.


Amy Bjornstad - "You don't want to think that if you don't have a hour to dedicate to your workout, then you just shouldn't workout at all.  You do want to squeeze in some extra time." 


When you only have a few minutes to spare, there is a solution.


Amy Bjornstad - "You know just throwing in these four minute workouts every once in a while, is just going to be great to just say, oh I did workout today." 


Personal Trainer Amy Bjornstad says you need to set aside a chunk of time that belongs to you.

A few miles on the treadmill isn't the only way to build up a sweat or increase your heart rate. 


Amy Bjornstad - "The idea is to pick these high intensity intervals that are going to force you to spend that four minutes moving the whole time." 


Personally I started off just fine....


Amy Bjornstad - "Three, two, one, excellent, put right back up."


But by the end of the workout.....


Amy Bjornstad - "Three, two, one more, come on, one more, one more, one more, there you go, get up, get up." 


To sum it up - this four minute lighting workout had me down for the count in the end.

However Bjornstad says not to use this as a quick alternative to a full workout.


Amy Bjornstad - "You don't want to do just everyday four minutes, and expect to get great results."


She says constant switching up your workouts, throwing in a light day, and a rest day are beneficial.

 In part two of our three part lightening workout series...We'll be increasing intensity and adding weights.
