How to Burn 100 Calories in 5 Minutes: The 300 Second Workout

Because You Are Always On the Go

A lot of us are on the go at most hours of the day. Most of us also want to try and squeeze in a workout, but don’t seem to know exactly what to do on a time crunch.

This workout is under 5 minutes and can be done anywhere. It’s a quick 100 calorie burn. Doing this may not be the exact workout that you want to do, but it’s at least some kind of workout.

You won’t be feeling like you haven’t done anything active when you complete this workout. Short and sweet is sometimes the way to go. You start the workout, push through it, and next thing you know, it’s already over. The workout will be shorter than some commercial breaks.

Here are the exercises that you will be doing:

  • Jumping Jacks – 40
  • Sit-Ups – 30
  • Squats – 20
  • Push-Ups – 10

Jumping Jacks

Doing jumping jacks will get your blood flowing immediately. An elevated heart rate will get your metabolism kicked into gear and force your body to start working.

Sit-Ups

These may not be the most fun exercise to do, but they get the job done. Many people don’t enjoy sit-ups solely because they can be uncomfortable. This makes sense, nobody wants to feel uncomfortable when they are working out. However, when you have a short workout like this, you have to bite the bullet sometimes.

Squats

Squats may be one of the most effective exercises that can be done. It creates a really strong base for you that lays the foundation for you when you are doing any workout. Not to mention, that if you are really looking to get a better-looking booty, this is the exercise you need to be doing.

Push-Ups

Push-ups may be one of the most fundamental bodyweight exercises. It incorporates so many different muscle groups that you are doing some work on your upper body, core, back, and legs.

The push-up is something that should be incorporated into any workout to help you achieve maximum results.
