When I carve out time four days a week to exercise I have a goal in mind and that’s to get fit. I want to maintain weight, keep my body healthy and stay in shape.
My routine typically takes an hour and a half to complete, but there are days when my mornings are too busy for that.
On those mornings, I don’t have time to get a full workout in, but there are two exercises I can do that will feel like I worked my whole body.
These two exercises target my chest, back, biceps, glutes, hips and hamstrings. 

Deadlifts work a series of muscles from my head to toe. Depending on the weight I use, this exercise will even force you to engage your triceps which I didn’t mention. The biggest this is making sure my form is correct so that I’m engaging my core, back chest, hips, and hamstrings. 
I usually warm up with a 10 pounds weight on each end of the bar. I do three warm up sets and then add another 15 pounds to each side of the bar.
I complete three sets of 10-15 reps.

Next, I move on to bicep curls. I complete a warm up set using the pin select machine set at 17 pounds. I do three warm-up reps and set the weight at 35 pounds.
I do three sets of full extension bicep curls and three sets of half extension curls.

It takes about 30 minutes to complete theses two exercises and I leave the gym feeling really good for such a short workout. 
You would think you need a lot of time to make an impact, but I’ve learned with the right combination of targeted exercises, you can hit multiple areas at once.
