Are you looking for short workouts? heres a couple I use periodically.

15 minutes of:
Sprint 25m
Sprint Backwards 25m
5 or 10 clapping pushups
Strafe left 25 m
Strafe right 25 m
20 lateral jumps over a barrier (bag, rock, whatever)
Rest is as needed, do as many rounds as you can.

5 rounds of:
5 dumbell snatches per arm starting with your left(I use 50-60lbs usually)
5 dumbell swings per arm (same dumbell, left first)
10 burpees
30-60 seconds rest

3-6 rounds:
30 seconds burpees
30 seconds high knee dumbell presses
30 seconds woodchoppers or lateral jumps
30 seconds burpees
30 seconds high knee dumbell presses
30 seconds woodchoppers or lateral jumps
30-60 seconds rest

-Start standing on your right leg with your right hand extended up. Your other leg should be raised high and bent and the same side hand should be at shoulder height holding a light dumbell (3-5lbs, I find three is ideal) and quickly press the light dumbell up while lowering your other hand (also holding a dumbell) and extending your bent leg and bending your extended leg....kind of a bad description but you should be able to find a vid on youtube or something.

Theyre all demanding routines if you do them as hard as you can, obviously you can slow down a bit so you can finish them if your not in the best of shape. You could also sub the woodchoppers or lateral jumps for jumping jacks to take it down a notch. Have fun.

.. i have been too lazy to exercise lately.. You have to first break that routine. Then take any cardio exercise that will fit your routine.

A strafe is when you run sideways

A burpee:

1. Start in a push up position.
2. Do one push up.
3. Quickly jump feet forward to a squatting position, like in a squat thrust.
4. Jump high into the air, bringing your knees up to your chest & raising your hands above your head.
5. Land with feet together, on the balls of your feet..
6. Drop back to a squat.
7. Jump feet back to a push up position.
8. Repeat many times.

Strafe=running sideways
Burpee=(the way I do them are a little different than the above guys way)
-Bottom of pushup position
-Push up
-tuck knees in to chest so you in the bottom of a squat
-jump as high as you can (most important part)
-land and go down into a squat
-hands on ground in front of you
-thrust feet out behind you while lowering yourself down to the bottom of a pushup position

You can also add a knee tuck to the jump with the hands above your head, star jump, jump and spin 180 degrees, do a long jump instead of straight up, jump backwards, jump as far to the side as you can, etc. It'll keep things interesting if you find burpees to be getting easy (highly unlikely lol)

LOL, you better be in shape or you'll get hurt doing those posted work outs, try some good old fahion jogging, make a shirt out of a plastic bag, put a jacket on top, jog for 15 to 20 mins a day, do abs afterwards and some lower back work outs, work your way to harder work outs dont rush it, its all a matter of consistency.
