30-Minute Workouts For Home And The Gym
For many people, the biggest impediment to working out is a lack of time. Whether it’s because of work, family or social commitments, there’s always something that needs to be done at the expense of exercise.
One solution is to build activity into your routine, by travelling by bike or on foot where possible. Another is to simply shorten your workouts so you can slip them into the busiest of schedules.
Whether you prefer to train at home or in the gym, we have effective 30-minute workouts that will help keep you trim without taking up too much of your precious time. You’ll find a brief description of each 30-minute workout below, click the link to get the full details.

No-Kit Full-Body Workout
The pace is high in this circuit workout, where you rattle through a series of bodyweight exercises working for 30 seconds and resting for just 15 seconds before moving on to the next move. Aim to hit the same rep count for each exercise in each of the four circuits you do. See the workout

This workout includes shuttle runs, so either do it in your garden if it’s longer (or indeed wider) than ten metres, or make for a park. The session is made up of bodyweight moves done at pace to get your heart pumping. See the workout
There’s a whole host of press-up workouts to be found in this article, including a ten-minute challenge for those really short on time. The 30-minute workout involves completing 300 press-ups, working in an EMOM (every minute on the minute) pattern. That’s a lot of press-ups so it’s one for the advanced exerciser only.
