Workouts that work in five minutes? Yep.
Fall is coming. And with it: serious obligations. Like football.
Seeing as how you’ll be strapped for time, we recommend a workout plan tailored for the scant moments you’ll have to yourself.
And for that, there’s Hot5.
Just released, Hot5 is a free app that features groupings of five 60-second exercises — as in, workouts you can do in five minutes … or less time than you’d spend showering at the gym.
The exercises are divided by said trainers and degree of difficulty. There’s a wide range of workouts: abs, cardio, CrossFit, kettlebell. Even “Amazing Butt.”
There’s a play-along video segment for each workout, with verbal instructions and, admittedly, some truly awful techno (but hey: it’s only five minutes).
The initial app is free. Additional workouts are gamified: you start with 500 “points” to put toward additional tutorials, and you can earn more by finishing the videos presently at your disposal.
Or: just purchase the points.
Cheating’s pretty quick, too.
