Pressed for time? My Top 3 Favorite Exercises to Do in a Hurry

1. Push-ups
A Push-up is a body weighted exercises that can be done anywhere with numerous modifications. My favorite is the diamond push-up and the classsic push-up. You perform this exercise with high reps to make it an endurance or HIIT workout or slow it down and use it to build strength and size.

2. Pull-ups 
The pull-up is another one of my favorite bodyweighted exercises. This pulling Exercise worksout your back muscles including your lats and biceps. Like the push-ups you can do these just about anywhere to build strength and endurance.


3. Dips 
A dip is another push exercise that can help build strength and size in the arms and chest. 

Well there you have it. My top 3 favorite exercise to do when I am pressed for time or just want to get a quick workout in. So take my advice, go out there and push yourself!

The Human Movement System

Our bodies are like a tower of jenga blocks. Remove one block and the structure becomes weaker and weaker. This is the same with our bodies. If one part of the Human Movement System is weak or injured it opens the door for other possible injuries. For example, if someone has a knee injury, if not corrected that knee injury can potentially cause lower back pains or LBP. This is why it's important to train the the HMS, not just to improve body composition or weight loss but to ensure that your body functions properly and reduce the risk of injury. Training, using functional movements like push-ups, squats, pull-ups or weight lifting, three days a week can help to improve the function of the HMS.

HMS Workout:

Push-ups 10x3
Squats 15x3
Lunges 15x3 each side
Plank 30s x 3
Barbell Bench Press 10x3
Barbell Squat 10x3
