"Sgt. Shawn, I just don't have the time!!" Try this.....

These are the 2 biggest reasons many people in The Sergeant’s Program may not be consistent:
1) Lack of time 2) Lack of motivation
So let’s tackle “Lack of Time” today with 5 ways you can get your workouts done faster at home (since you can’t get your butts up in the morning). After all, if you choose to go to the gym for a workout (Non-Sergeant’s Program related) no one should spend more than 45 minutes in the gym three times per week to burn belly fat.
Here are 5 fast ways to cut your workout time.
By using supersets, you’ll get more results in less time than those folks who are wasting their time with machine circuits and isolation exercises like triceps pulldowns or the adductor machine .
b) Choose a better warmup strategy
Don’t waste 10 minutes walking on the treadmill. Instead, use the bodyweight exercises at a moderate pace for only 3-5 minutes.
c) Pair dumbbell and bodyweight exercises together in your supersets
This saves you time at home (you don’t need to change the dumbbell weight between exercises) and in the gym (you don’t need to fight for 2 sets of dumbbells).
d) Choose fat burning intervals over slow, boring cardio
The latest research shows interval trainers burn more belly fat and exercise for half as much time as cardio workouts.
e) Use bodyweight circuits & medicine ball exercises
These workouts require little or NO equipment and you can do them in your bedroom, even if you’re busy wrapping my Christmas present(s), LOL
In just 15 to 20 minutes you can burn fat in the comfort of your own home before a big holiday event. No more excuses, sorry!
Here is one of my favorite workouts when I want a quick workout, traveling on business or want to get someone’s blood pumping gradually!! Pace yourself.
Set #1, 1 rep squat + 1 rep pushup, rest 1 second Set #2, 2 rep squat + 2 rep pushup, rest 2 seconds Set #3, 3 rep squat + 3 rep pushup, rest 3 seconds . REPEAT UP 20 . Set #20, 20 rep squat + 20 rep pushup, rest 20 seconds (Should be nice and pumped)
