Fit Like Your Hero 2 Minutes At A Time

AWC > Fitness > Fit Like Your Hero 2 Minutes At A Time

Our spouses are Army strong, but are we? 

You all know about the many expectations the Army has, especially those of physical fitness. Each week our spouses dedicate time to exercise so that they can be combat ready, or at least so that they can pass the PT test when it's time. It only makes sense that a soldier be fit no matter what his/her job. And I'd argue that it makes just as much sense that army spouses be fit too. Being a military spouse comes along with additional worries and stresses.


Fitness is an important tool to help you deal with and overcome these stresses; not to mention to stay smokin' hot for your hero as well ;-) It's not as hard as you think. Here are some two minute drills to help you be just as fit as your soldier.  You can mix and match them into your regular workouts, or do them on their own as a circuit.

2 Minute Drill #1: Push-ups

  • 20 sec. Standard Push-ups
  • 10 sec. Child's Pose Stretch
  • 20 sec. Wide Push-ups
  • 10 sec. Child's Pose Stretch
  • 20 sec. Diamond Push-ups
  • 10 sec. Child's Pose Stretch
  • 20 sec. Close Stance (Triceps) Push-ups
  • 10 sec. Stationary Plank

2 Minute Drill #2:  Sit-ups
Set your timer, lay on your back with your hands supporting your head, stick your feet under the couch and go for it.  See how many you can do before time is up.  Be sure to keep your chin off your chest and let the back of your shoulders touch the ground each time before you sit all the way up.  If full sit-ups become a little much, switch to crunches; just DON'T STOP.  Right down how many you did and try to beat your score next time.

2 Minute Drill #2:  Sprinting Intervals
Whenever you go for a run dedicate 2 minutes to sprinting intervals.  You decide where you stick the intervals- beginning, middle or end.

  • 30 sec. sprint
  • 30 sec. walk/jog
  • 30 sec. sprint
  • 30 sec. walk/jog
