- Workout for a weed
I am sadly unfit and want to do something about it.
Can someone recommend a good, short (say 15m max) workout I can do each day? Something helpful for mountain biking especially.
Specifics of “sadly unfit”:
Bad back, mainly lower back and sore/stiff muscles across the shoulder blades
Feeble core (just tried a plank – was shaking by 25 seconds and gave up at 30 😳 )
Not much stamina
Strength in general, not so worried about leg muscles though as the solution for that is just ride more!
I’m not overweight, just feeble and weedy 😛

Stick with the planking. It is hard at first but does wonders to your core which compliments other excersizes and will help with lower back pain too.
In 15 mins you could do some stretches, yoga, planks, Press ups, crunches, Squats. And stretches at the end too. After a few weeks try adding in some light shoulder presses too.Posted 2 years agokayla1Member
There are some good core yoga workouts on Vimeo that take about 10-15 minutes, or have a look on youtube. It’s worth persevering with core stuff cos it’ll probably sort your back problems out (at least it did with me.)
edit- bird dog for your back
dead bug for your front
and plank, for misery, obvs 😀Posted 2 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

Why only 15 minutes ? I think the short Insanity workout is 25 mins .
Though with something like that you need to take into account recovery time too! If 15 minutes is what you’ve got, all-in, then you can’t be doing anything that destroys you.Posted 2 years ago
