Alongside money issues, not everyone has the time, or desire to go to the gym.

With the plethora of commitments most of us have, from looking after the kids to meeting deadlines at work, it can often be hard to fit in any exercise or time for yourself at all.

By not carving out any time to look after yourself you are likely to see a significant gain in body fat, especially around the hips and waist, not to mention the risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Chris Wharton, a specialist in body transformation, says if this sounds familiar theres a similar solution.

He said: By carving out just 10 to 20 minutes a day to create a morning routine, you can make a profound improvement to your physique. Now only will you look great, you will have a lot more energy, enjoy much better sleep quality and feel far happier in general.

I would suggest adding the following three simply bodyweight exercises to your morning routine. After youve woken up it is great to fire up your central nervous system, get the heart and lungs pumping and dust off some cobwebs. A short workout also helps keep it short and simple, otherwise you are likely to skip it.

Its worth noting here, that this should be an addition to a well-structured nutrition plan that focuses on creating a calorie deficit. It is impossible to lose any belly fat if you are consuming too many calories, no matter how hard you exercise.

1. Pause squats

Despite not targeting the abs specifically, compound movements like the squat are great for engaging larger volumes of muscle mass, crucial for burning a higher number of calories.

2. Press up to mountain climber

3. Ab cycle

Lie flat on your back with you hands behind your head. Raise your head and shoulders slightly off the floor and push your lower back into the ground. Now raise one knee to the opposite elbow.

Quickly switch knees and elbows in a cycle motion for one minute. Aim to keep your lower back in contact with the floor for the duration.

Important points to remember:

1. This workout should be completed alongside a well-structured nutrition plan that creates a daily calorie deficit. For any fat loss plan to be effective you must burn off more calories than you consume on a consistent basis

2. Try to complete the circuit 3-5 times a week

3. Complete the circuit 3-5 times per workout depending on your available time

4. Complete each exercise for 1 minute with 20 seconds rest between each exercise.
