10 minute workout for busy women

10 Minute Workout for the busy mom

Posted on Posted in Fitness

Squeezing in time for a good workout can sometimes be difficult especially if you work, have kids, or both! It’s difficult to get everything done in one day let alone workout for an hour which is why I put together a 10 minute total body workout.

This workout is designed for the busy mom who literally only has a few minutes to exercise. It is also designed for those us of who don’t have very much space. If working out in your bedroom beside is your bed is your only option or you’re traveling and have to workout in your hotel room, then this routine is for you! It’s short but very effective!

The Workout

We will be doing 4 exercises and will go through the sequence 3 times. There are no breaks, but if you need to take a breather or to grab a sip of water, go for it!

You can do this routine using your body weight or you can add weights to make the workout more challenging.

You do not need any equipment. Your body weight will do BUT if you want to add weights, add them. A mat is optional but I recommend one if you’re working out on a hard floor. We will be doing ab work. If you’re working out on carpet, then you probably don’t need the mat.

Make sure to have water and towel to wipe the sweat away! I forgot to grab mine so I was dripping everywhere! This is not a cardio workout so there will be no high impact moves. It’s all about strength training today.

Before you start, warm up with a march or jog in place for 2 minutes.

The Routine: Do this routine 3 times with no breaks

20 Squats

10 Push ups

20 Reverse Lunges

12 C Crunches


I did not include a cool down but make sure to stretch those muscles after you’re done. A quick 2 minute stretch is all you need.

  1. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

    1. Hello Sharilyn! Thank you for stopping by my blog! You can receive alerts when new posts are published by subscribing to my blog. The subscribe box is on the sidebar!

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    1. Hello Cecil! Thank you so much for your comment. Yes, you are correct!! This post was posted along with a video a year or so ago and was added before I created a separate video section. Unfortunately, when I switched to a new host, my video along with all blog photos were lost. I am in the process of slowly replacing everything. I will leave this up because a video will eventually be added and some people prefer the written version over video or vise versa. Again, Thank You for your constructive criticism. In the future, I will keep blog posts separate from workout videos.
