If I’m being honest, I am a pretty lazy active person. Yes, you read that right! What I mean by that is that when I workout, I’m all about trying to get in and get out of the gym as fast as I possibly can. I don’t want to live at the gym, but I am focused when I’m there. I’ve even had people not recognize me because I look so different ( AKA so concentrated on what I’m doing that I have that “bitch don’t look at me” face ) when I exercise. I’ve got my game face on! Don’t get me wrong, I like working out. There are absolutely times during the workout when I can’t wait til the pain is over, but I’m always glad that I go.
“The only workout you’ll ever regret is the one you didn’t do.”
This quote may sound cliche, but I believe this. Even if I only have time for a 15 minute workout, I will make it happen. Just like the next person, I have my off days where I can’t make it to the gym when I had planned for it. But the whole point of this post is for me to share with you a workout that I do when I only have 10-20 minutes for a workout, and it KILLS.
The Ultimate Bike Workout!

Okay. There are a few rules.
1. The RPMs on the stationary bike need to stay above 80.
2. For the first 30 seconds, go at as high of a resistance as you can but stay above 80 RPMs.
3. For the next 30 seconds, lower the resistance all the way to zero.
4. Alternate between these two for 10-20 minutes.
This doesn’t sound that hard, right? Give it a try. Comment below and let me know just how sore your legs are the next day!
