What is the best type of workout?

The best workouts are the ones which make you feel great. If you feel great at the end of a workout you are more likely to come back and do it again resulting in an improved mindset along with forming a habit which is a crucial part of a healthy sustainable lifestyle.

‘I like workouts that give you ‘bang for your buck’ meaning you will get a better result for the amount of effort you put in. Including HIIT (high-intensity interval training), circuits and full body strength sessions is a great way to do this,’ says Richard.

However, it’s also important to include some lower intensity workouts into your week as well. ‘Recovery sessions are a great way to switch off your mind, stretch and repair your body and leave you feeling rested. Having a strong mindset will allow you to make good choices moving forward,’ he adds.

The benefits of a 30-minute workout

Training for 30 minutes allows you to have a much more productive workout which can lead to a more productive day ahead. ‘By removing the faffing about and keeping it short, sharp and intense you can get it done and get on with your day,’ advises Richard.

Other benefits can include:

– improved sleep
– reduced stress
– reduces risk of diabetes
– promotes healthy weight loss
– encourages routine

Here are 5 simple, but testing workouts under 30 minutes which can be completed anywhere and anytime.
