The Low-Impact Cardio Workout You Need for Lazy Days

Let's be real for a hot second: Some days, when you start getting ready for the gym, your body (and mind) just isn't in the mood. It's those days — when burpees feel 10,000 times harder than they did yesterday — that you need a more chill workout. There's nothing wrong with doing something low impact. In fact, experts say that it's crucial to break up those balls-to-the-walls days with more low-key routines to give your body time to recover while still being active. (That said, you can still get your brain in the game. Here's how.)

That's where this workout from Ellen Barrett comes in. It's a cardio-based, fat-burning walking workout, so you can do it pretty much anywhere. And it's only 20 minutes, so you can even squeeze it in on that lunch break.
