15-minute morning workout challenge for beginners

Every year, millions of people around the world give themselves a New Year’s resolution to make a fresh start and take care of themselves. But let’s be honest, which of us has really fulfilled this promise? Today, we want to introduce you to a workout challenge that will help you get rid of excess fat and fulfill your promise. Scroll down to learn the details.

It is very simple and ideal for beginners. This type of training has several advantages. First, this session will only last 15 minutes and it will not affect your work schedule. Another advantage is that it should be performed immediately after you wake up, which will allow you to immediately jump-start your metabolism. We are too busy with work and family and in the evening it is difficult for us to find time for fitness.

Often the problem with beginners is that they very quickly give up training because it’s hard or because they are too lazy for it. This workout will be an exception as it is very easy to accomplish and it will not upset you. Statistics show that people who practice regularly do this in the morning. If you are not yet convinced of its effectiveness then just imagine your tightened body after just a month of training.

All you need to do these exercises is a mat and a timer. You must perform each exercise for 40 seconds and rest for 20 seconds. According to the plan you have to do 2 exercises each day of the week and then repeat them 4 times.
