The 10-Minute Transformation
We’re busy people, but we also want to keep ourselves in shape, healthy, and strong. Our lives don’t really cooperate in this regard. More often we need to sacrifice some form of our health if we want to perform at our best in work, or vice versa. This doesn’t always have to be the case, however.
There are plenty of workouts we can do in whatever time we have available. While they are not as intensive as the workouts you spend hours at the gym trying to run through, they are well rounded and effective in their own regard, and can help form a strong and healthy body all the same. Mens Health has one such workout guaranteed to help:
Don’t let this bodyweight workout fool you: “You won’t lift a single weight, but in just 10 minutes you’ll work harder and sweat more than most guys do in a half hour,” says Gaddour.
Every second is a lung-busting, sweat-pouring challenge. No time wasted, no room for excuses.
HOW TO DO IT: Perform each exercise for up to 60 seconds (stop if you lose good form), moving from one to the next without rest.
You can use this 10-minute circuit anytime for a quick metabolism boost, or do back-to-back circuits to create a 20, 30, or 40-minute workout. Rest 30 to 60 seconds between circuits.
The workout includes 10 exercise from planks to lunges and squats. None of them require weights, but they all require the type of effort that will leave you exhausted at the end. Check out the full workout here.
