The plan: Complete these strength exercises two or three times a week (it'll take about 30 to 40 minutes). Warm up first with some moderate-paced cardio for five minutes. Do the number of reps specified for each given workout.
The strategy: Doing supersets -- combining two or three exercises back to back -- is one of the best ways to maximize your time. "Because you're constantly moving, you keep your heart rate elevated and burn more calories," explains New York City trainer Lacey Stone, who masterminded our routine. As the month progresses, increase the number of times you do each circuit and the number of reps while decreasing the amount of rest time. (See "Your Weekly Strength/Cardio Planner" for details.)
What you'll need: A set of 5- to 8-pound (beginners) or 8- to 15-pound (advanced) dumbbells and a stair or step.
