Most of us have the option of going to the gym at two points in the day: before work, or after work. Both of these timeframes are peak hours which means the crowd factor is at a 10. Locker rooms, crowded. Showers, crowded. Dumbbell rack, crowded. Benches, crowded... and sweaty. You get the point. Your mood is affected, your workouts suffer, and results can dwindle. Not to mention, everyone looks at you like you're a jerk because you're trying to do a superset or a circuit.
Now, we're not saying boycott the gym. That would be silly. But maybe it's time to get some air and take a break. These 8 workouts are quick, effective, and you don't even need to leave the comfort of your own home.
Set up a little work station away from the couch, and get to it.
