I get a daily newsletter from the New York Times and shortly after January 1st I saw a section about strength training. I think their article is really nice because it has pictures and videos of how to do the exercises as well as modifications and challenges. I also really like their recommendations because this is the type of exercise routine that can be completed in the comfort of your home. No gym membership required.

[If you can’t access the New York Times article below are the 9 exercise moves they recommend. If you aren’t familiar with a specific move they can each easily be searched on the internet.]

When these 9 moves are done together in one-minute intervals they become a complete, whole-body workout. Perform the 9 exercises in three sets of three with a one-minute break in between sets. Do this workout 2 to 3 times a week for maximum benefits. If you want a complete workout with cardio just add some cardiovascular exercise before your strength training.

*In each set, do each exercise for one minute, not stopping between exercises until the one minute break

Set 1:

  • Bodyweight Squat
  • Push-Ups
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Take a one-minute break

Set 2

  • Plank
  • Bodyweight Split Squat
  • Single-Leg Hip Raise
  • Take a one-minute break

Set 3

  • Burpee with Push-Up
  • Single-Leg Toe Touches
  • Leg Raises
