The 20-Minute Mind/Body Workout

We tried it, so we know it works: Here's how just a few minutes of exercise a day can get you slim and sculpted for life.

Workout 1

Crazy busy? Us too. That's why we were ecstatic when trainer Annette Lang, a FITNESS advisory board member, designed this quickie workout that can help you get stronger, leaner, and totally energized in only 20 minutes a day. The key is consistency: Each day for 20 days, you'll pick a strength workout, a cardio routine, or a series of relaxation and stretching exercises. In less than three weeks, you'll see (and feel) major changes in your body and your energy level; best of all, you'll actually want to work out.

See the moves! Check out the 20-minute miracle workout in our free exercise video channel.


How it works: Each day, pick from one of five series options: upper-body strength, lower-body strength, core strength, cardio, or relaxation. Do at least three different series each week. Schedule your cardio on two nonconsecutive days.

What you'll need: A set of 5- to 10-pound dumbbells (if the exercise feels easy after 20 reps, bump up the weight) and a weight bench or large sofa cushion for strength workouts.

Next:  Push-Up
