Want to get fit, but don’t have ANY time to go to the gym? Here’s your solution: 5 minute at home workouts to tone your abs, arms, thighs and butt! This list with printable workouts is all you need! No equipment and almost no time involved.
I did some more research on short printable workouts and this time I’ve got the best toning workouts for you here! Each workout is just 5 minutes and focuses on a different area of your body. So if you don’t have any time, but want to squeeze in a short workout before dinner or even before going out of your house in the morning (basically whenever you’ve got time) – these workouts here will help you do that.
There are different options with these workouts:
Option 1: You do one workout daily, focusing on a different muscle group every time. For example if one day you do arm exercises, the other day you do butt exercises, allowing time for your muscles to grow, while training other muscles.
Option 2: If you have more time, combine workouts targeting different muscle groups to train your entire body in approximately 20 minutes a day.
Option 3: Or if you have 9-12 minutes combine one of these strength workouts with a fat-burning workout from my other list of short workouts.
Either way – there are no excuses to not do a workout every day, even if it’s just 5 minutes. It will not just tone you up, it will also give you a sense of accomplishment. That’s what it does for me at least. If I don’t do any workout I not only feel more lethargic, yet kinda passive aggressive, I also feel super guilty. Because I am a woman and I need to do it all, you know? But let’s not dig deep into that mess and just go straight to the workouts!

Legs and Butt Workouts
Summer is almost here and toned legs & butt are always in. The following workouts will help you get lean legs, without making them bigger. Which I don’t know about you, but is one of my biggest problems with most leg workouts. Once I start running or doing too many squats, instead of getting slimmer legs, I get bulkier legs. And my legs are not that long. So short and thick legs? Well. Not my dream. It might be someone’s goal, but not mine. I prefer toned, yet slim legs. If this is your goal as well – try these workouts.
