20 Minute Home Circuit Workout?
This workout is extremely fun. And challenging. By alternating the jumping rope with bodyweight exercises, you'll have tons of fun, while working on both your aerobic and anaerobic systems as well.
This workout is a good match for the beginner trainee. Simply if some of the bodyweight movements are too intense for you, decrease the repetitions with 20-30% for each set and you'll be able to endure the session.
At the same time, this 20 minute workout at home is a circuit training routine. You have to alternate jump rope exercises and one jump rope style. In addition, you don't have a rest between each of the exercises. That will make the duration of one round around 3:30 minutes. Which doesn't sound much but it's lots of work actually. 3:30 minutes of time under tension is sufficient effort that needs to be done.
What Makes This 20 Minute Workout At Home Efficient For Weight Loss?
Simple. Doing lots of work in a very tight frame. This means that you have to perform tons of repetitions in 20 minutes time.
By doing that, you'll work a lot on improving your strength endurance, cardio and conditioning.

Why The Jumping Rope?
The jump rope stood the test of time. This is the most practical and efficient conditioning training tool that you can fit right in your pocket. I will not really bother you a lot with information about the jump rope training.
However, I will mention a few of the benefits that I believe should be taken into consideration.
By using the jump rope, you will:
1. Improve your cardio, conditioning and strength endurance.
2. Build stamina, agility and enhance your cognitive performance post-workout due to the oxidation of your brain.
3. Improve your foot work that will provide you with an immediate carryover in your walking and how you move your body on a day to day basis.
4. You will never get bored. If you learn 4-5 jump rope styles (you can begin with the easy ones. If you're new to the jump rope training, you'll always have fun and be able to create such an awesome and dynamic workouts that will work equally on your body and mindset as well.
I believe these will be enough for you at the moment. If you dig deeper, the jumping rope has been used by many athletes through last decades. It's a cheap and highly efficient tool. And if you're not using it yet, you're leaving lots of benefits that can be gained by mastering the jump rope workouts.
Why The Combination Of Jumping Rope and Bodyweight Exercises?
I will not lie. This is my most fun way to workout. And if it's fun - you will love to do it and be consistent.
The consistency is king of results. That's precisely what this training style will do for you.
And the best part?
You can do it anywhere! At home, outdoor, on the beach, in the mountain, even at the office!
By mixing jump rope and bodyweight exercises, you're basically alternating between anaerobic and aerobic work at the same time. If the jump rope style is less intense, that will allow your body to recover from the bodyweight exercises and be able to attack again, the next movement.
Of course, you will not really rest while jumping the rope, but the demand required by your body is completely different and will even enhance the performance of the bodyweight exercises included in this 20 minute home workout.
How Can You Structure A Training Program That Only Consists of 20 Minute Home Workouts?
If you're too busy to visit the gym or follow a training program that consists of longer workouts 60+ minutes duration, then I have a great idea for you!
If you're tight on time to workout and the only availability for you is to workout at home for 20 minutes, then you will have to make this a habit and include these kind of workouts - on a daily basis.
For instance, I would recommend you to include 20 minute at home workouts at least 4-5 times per week to meet a sufficient and satisfactory results. This training ideology is called High Frequency Training.
This is a necessary step to be taken, if you want to get results in a faster tempo without doing long and exhausting workouts at the gym.
High Frequency Training - The Ultimate Training Approach For The Busy Person
We are all busy. That's the world we're living in. I have literally 0 clients that will claim that they are not overwhelmed or not stressed out. It is what it is. But hey, there's a training approach that can cover your back here and will serve you well if being applied on a regular basis.
High frequency training. In a nutshell, the HFT is a workout ideology that recommends to workout more often, for less time and volume applied. Otherwise said, short workouts (20-40 minutes duration) with moderate intensity applied for 4-6 days per week.
I've learned that training system from Chad Waterbury and Jason Ferrugia around 3 years ago.
Here are their websites (just in case you're wondering who these coaches are).
Honestly, at the beginning, when I was introduced to the High Frequency Training, I was sceptical. You know, 20-30 minute workouts, 4-6 times per week sounds not serious. But when I gave this approach a test, and seen how it worked for me for a couple of weeks, I was blown away!
What Benefits To Expect From The High Frequncy Training?
By testing the HFT for 6 weeks as a start, the following benefits were gained:
I have built a solid movement/workout habit. With that spoken, I wasn't worry anymore if I'm going to skip a workout or not. Because I could always compensate it by simply re-structure my training program. When you have 3 or 4 workouts per week, and when you miss a session, you feel guilt. And not just that but once skipped, the process cannot be undone. And let me tell you, this is pressure and stress.
We all have bad days with lack of sleep or too much stress at work. Days where working out is simply not our priority nor pleasure. It's normal. I get that. We're all human beings and as such, life is not all about training. And it shouldn't be. Unless you're a sponsored athlete or an online influential coach that's 100kg body weight with 6% body fat.
The sweetest part of this training is that if you skip/miss a workout, you will be okay with that. Because you know that you have 5 more days to train. The mindset is different and honestly, feeling the whole training process from this angle is pretty convenient and not that overwhelming. The "I MUST workout at any cost" will dissapear and you'll feel kinda relieved by this feeling. I can guarantee you that.
