Tens Workout - Pushups and Squats

A simple 20-minute Who Needs a Gym home workout routine that includes squats and pushups.

Simple workout really. 10 sets of 10 reps each of both squats and pushups. My time, 20 minutes and 42 seconds. Total reps of each exercise: 100. Total number of movements: 200.

Round 1 ~ Round 10

10 x Squats
10 x Pushups

I finished the first two rounds in under 2 minutes - I thought I could do it in 15 minutes but was toasted as I got deeper into the workout. My recommendation: take breaks as needed, even breaks in the middle of each set, its OK! Also, if you are getting toasted towards the end, do the pushups on your knees - just get to the end.

Make it more difficult

Too easy for you? OK here is how you can ramp it up. Do incline pushups instead of pushups and do jump reach squats instead of squats.

Round 1 ~ Round 10

10 x Jump Reach Squats
10 x Incline Pushups

 Now you will burn.

Let me know how it goes and would be curious to hear your times.
