PSA: We don’t need to spend two hours a day in the gym to reap the benefits. Nope, this isn’t just wishful thinking—it’s actually shown by science that short workouts can have a big impact.
Short workouts are also great for when we’re lacking motivation. Doing a five-minute yoga flow seems much more doable than even a 20- or 30-minute one. And while completing one short workout is an accomplishment in and of itself, sometimes it also motivates us to want to keep going.
Enter: workout stacking.
This is an easy way to build on our successes and keep things interesting.
The concept is simple—mix and match short workouts to create a customized routine. This breaks up a fitness session into short doses that target different areas of the body and incorporate different modalities into our routine.
For instance, we like stacking this quick HIIT booty workout with this calming yoga flow to get a bit of cardio and some low-impact stretching.
Another stack we like: this workout to get a rounder, stronger butt plus this bodyweight abs workout.
