It doesn't take hours at the gym to see fitness results, so it's about time we stop believing that lie. And some days it really does feel like there are only 10 minutes to spare. Which is why this routine is so important—you can rely on it whenever you don't want to waste a single second. (That's code for, "I will follow this workout all the time.")
Your main focus is to spike your heart rate as much as you can in the 10 minutes dedicated to getting sweaty. Why? The heart is the biggest muscle, and the most vital organ to our health. By adding a cardio workout into your routine a few times a week, you can help reverse sedentary damage done from driving, watching tv, and sitting at a desk all day. Plus, cardio-focused workouts don't usually require a ton of equipment. And this one, in particular, calls for nothing but your bodyweight. You'll bust through moves like mountain climbers, squats with leg raises, modified burpees, and inchworm push-ups.
With that, it's time to get moving. Follow the video for your sequence of moves, and 10 minutes from now you can cross "workout" off that to-do list and get on with your day.
