Sometimes when I am in a cardio rut I combine my exercise routines. you don't have to be a triathlete or duathlete to appreciate gym workouts that incorporate two or more cardio sessions. Say I have only 4o minutes to exercise but am burned out from the bike. I will perform a HIIT bike training for 20 minutes and immediately transition to the Treadmill for 20 minutes of run / walk exercise. It keeps your exercise fun, you can track your improvement and it shocks you out of complacency

Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.
