Updated on March 19, 2010

Introduction to Quick Workouts Anywhere

it is often hard for some of us to get around to exercising, busy work schedules, lack of motivation, and no access to equipment can make it difficult to gew in to a workout routine.  Fortunately I am going to show you how you can do quick workouts anywhere.

Quick workouts anywhere can take just five minutes a few times a day, and you can use everyday objects, no matter where you are. 

The Tin Can/Fruit Method for Quick Workouts Anywhere

One of the easiest ways to get a quick workout anywhere is to pick up a tin can, or a large piece of fruit. Doing a few repetitions with these light weights can help improve your muscle tone, although it might not manage to help you build up a huge amount of muscle. 

You can find objects of similar weights pretty much anywhere, and if you get an opportunity, just keep lifting it to help keep your arm and shoulder muscles in good shape.  The exercises you can do with these are basically the same as what you do with Free Weights (dumbbells and barbells).

Whole Body Quick Workouts Anywhere

There are several kinds of workouts which you can do anywhere, these include pushups (On the ground or semi-pushups against a bench), squats, and crunches.  You can do these simple quick workouts anywhere, although you might not want to do them in a public area!

These simple quick workouts to do anywhere are very effective at toning your body and increasing body mass. This is not to menion the fact that these simple exercises are dead easy to learn!

Yoga Quick Exercises Anywhere

Yoga is a well known toning exercise which can be performed anywhere, although it helps if you have a yoga mat handy!

By using some yoga quick exercises such as the sun salutation whether you are in a hotel or at home, you can help tone your body. Yoga can take a bit of getting used to, it requires coordination and balance. However it shouldn't take you long to find Yoga a simple and relaxing quick exercise anywhere!

Leg Elevation Quick Exercises Anywhere

You might be surprised at just how heavy your legs are. If you are sat down hold one leg straight, and lift it up till it is level with your waist.  Try to hold this for as long as possible, then switch to your other leg.

This simple exercise is especially useful when you are recovering from a leg injury!
