Back when I was training for Miss Hawaii and Miss USA, I learned a lot of work out routines that you can do when you have no equipment at all. Reason being because I knew I’d be living out of a hotel room for two weeks without reliable access to the gym, but I still needed to stay in tip-top shape. Today I wanted to share a 20-minute workout routine you can do at home when you’re short on time but high on motivation.
As always, my #1 workout tip is to stay hydrated, which means drinking water before, during and after your workout routine. Not all water is created equal, so I always reach for smartwater®. The taste is pure and crisp (added electrolytes give it the great taste), plus it’s vapor distilled so it’s hydration you can feel. I love buying these 0.5 liter smartwater bottles – which conveniently come in a 6-pack – because I know that if I drink 4 of them then I’ve met my 8-glasses per day goal. I purchased my smartwater at my local Target in Tribeca. Especially as the weather heats up and we all get more active, don’t forget to pick up smartwater this Spring to keep you hydrated!

So let’s get started! All you need for this tutorial is a mat, your phone or a timer, and your smartwater. This workout is done in 2 circuits. Do the exercises in circuit 1 again and again for 4.5 minutes, take a 30-second break, do the exercises in circuit 2 again and again for 4.5 minutes, take a 30-second break, then back to circuit 1 for 4.5 minutes, take a 30-second break, back to circuit 2 for 4.5 minutes, and then you’re done. When you first start, you might just get through one set of each exercise, but as you get more familiar you’ll probably breeze through them. Please know that I’m not a personal trainer and my form isn’t perfect either, but this workout has always worked for me then I need to get some quick exercise in and I can’t get to the gym, and I hope it works for you too.
