One of the biggest problems for most people when it comes to building muscles, reducing fat and generally getting into better shape, is being able to stick to a plan. You don’t need to have a complicated plan. All you need is ten minutes for a full body workout. You need to stick to a training program long enough so that you get to see the results of your workouts.

It doesn’t have to be a perfect workout plan either. Even the worst program can offer results. You just have to stick to it. Sticking to a less than perfect workout over a long period of time is way better than being haphazard with the best plan.

This is something people often overlook when it comes to getting into shape. Coming up with a routine that requires hours of work five or six times a week is not going to work.

Talk about tiring yourself out. As well your muscles don’t get a chance to recover. Putting a workout plan into action takes a lot of time. First, you have to change into workout clothes and if you go to a gym there is travel time to consider. As well you have to shower, change clothes, drive home!

So instead, do a full body workout. Make your workout easy. If you use a workout that takes into consideration your whole body in a single session, only takes ten minutes and can be done anywhere, you are more likely to do it regularly.

The best time for this workout is first thing in the morning. Before you have to go to work and even before hitting the shower. Train in your pajamas or underwear! With this type of workout, you should have absolutely no problem sticking to it.

Here it is what you need to do:

Three Exercises to Rule Them All

The workout is made up of three exercises that together that will train the entire body while also providing some cardio benefit. The three exercises are:
• Pull Ups
• Push Ups
• Jumping Squats

You should perform each exercise to failure and then move straight onto the next exercise. You want to finish each exercise without taking a break.

Plan to rest after the jumping squats for one minute before starting the routine again. You are going to perform three sets. It should take between ten and fifteen minutes.

Jumping Squats

This program works all the key muscles in the body because it imitates an involved split workout that bodybuilders use called PPL (Push, Pull, Leg).

The Pull-Ups work the lats, the biceps, and the abs. The Push-Ups train the pecs, the triceps and the shoulders. And the Jumping Squats workout the entire lower body and provide some cardio.

This workout is not going to be enough to have you build massive muscles overnight. It can burn fat and it can tone your muscles.

However, in order for you to train for more muscle mass, you will need to use heavier weights performed slowly and for longer.

This ten-minute full body workout can be used as a tool to start your new training program and to get into the habit of working out regularly. It can also be used whenever you can’t fit a full routine into your day.
