Do you have too much stuff to do? Like you, every day I deal with Facebook posts, tweets, work and family. Finding time to go to the gym is getting tough! Well, don't worry. I have put together a workout you can do anywhere called the 2 Minute Workout that only takes, you guessed it, 2 minutes! This workout will get your blood pumping, increase your energy level, burn some calories and strengthen muscles.  Not a bad way to spend 2 minutes!

Perform each of the below exercises for 30 seconds .

Quad Hop

Get on your toes and place your palms on the floor facing each other. Keep your back parallel to the floor. Push up off the floor.

Sky Kicks

Sit on the floor with your hands pointed toward your toes. Push up until your arms are straight. This is the starting position. Alternately kick your feet up and down.

Switch Backs

Put your hands and one foot on the ground aligned with each other. Put one leg back and bend your knees.  Keeping your hands on the ground, jump and switch legs. Each jump equals one rep.

Chest Taps

Assume the push-up position.  Lower your body until your arms are perpendicular to the floor, then explode upward tapping your chest.

There is no set number of reps, do as many as you feel comfortable. For a quick two minute warmup each exercise should make you tired, so do just enough for you to get tired after each one
