Even a 10-minute workout a day can make a difference.
Follow this ultraspeedy circuit that will test your entire body. It can be done anywhere and will be over in no time. No more excuses!
How to Do It
Warm up by alternating 30 seconds of star jumps with 30 seconds of jogging on the spot. Do this for two minutes to warm up your joints and get your blood pumping.
Next, tackle each of the following exercises in order, taking as little rest as you can between each move.
Make sure you do the correct number of repetitions (reps) of each and once you've done the circuit, rest for 30 seconds before starting again. After you've done three circuits, catch your breath with a few minutes of marching on the spot, before stretching your muscles to prevent soreness.
