A lot of people have this mindset that they have to put in a solid hour at the gym to get an effective workout in. Guess what…not true! Let’s change our mindset with the simple thought of, “How can I move my body more throughout the day?” I promise you, your joints and mind will be in a much better place. Having worked in Physical Therapy, I am all about meeting you where you’re at in your fitness journey. The below exercises are my Top 4 Full Body Exercises. While they are considered, HIIT rotations, keep in mind that you can modify your workouts to where your body’s state is currently at. Our bodies are all different, so accepting where you’re at, then progressing from there is a fantastic start!
