I’m consistently inconsistent when it comes to working out. Â While I have a weekly
torture training session with BrianÂ (if you’re looking for a trainer in NYC, he’s phenomenal!), there are weeks where I can’t seem to make the gym on the other 6 days.
It’s not the most ideal of circumstances.
I had this notion that when I hit the gym, it had to be for at least 45 minutes (anyone else out there feel this way?). Â And curbing on sleep / blog / social time didn’t seem to be a reasonable option.
But a 25 minute workout (that’s also immensely effective)? Â I can do that.
Enter 5 Factor Fitness, the method pioneered by Hollywood trainer Harley Pasternak. Â After reading his blogs on People.com, I became intrigued about this 25-minute method he espoused. Â I bought the book, and Â 5 weeks later I’m hooked. Â I can carve out 25 minutes on most days, and the intensity of the workouts keep my muscles challenged. Â Most importantly, it keeps me in shape.
I highly recommend starting with the workout below (courtesy of FitSugar), and purchasing the book. Â This workout is also perfect for NYFW insanity (and so is this Portavi Guide).
