Are you one of those people that barely has time to spend time with family, let alone work out? You know exercise is essential for great health but if you’re constantly on a time crunch, it can be tough to get in the physical activity you need each day to meet the CDC guidelines.
Let’s take a look at 4 ways to hack a 10-minute workout to work in your favor for better results.
When it comes to saving time and getting great results, nothing will beat high intensity interval training, otherwise known as H.I.I.T.
These workouts can be completed in 10 minutes but be warned, the intensity is through the roof. H.I.I.T. workouts can be done in any place at any time. They rely on your bodyweight and maximum speed to get you great muscle building and fat loss results.
You perform the recommended number of repetitions for one exercise at maximum effort before moving on to the next one with no break in between. Here’s a sample H.I.I.T. workout you can use:
Burpees: 8 to 10 repetitions
Lying Leg Lift: 10-15
Mountain Climbers: 20-25
Side Plank Dips: 10-15
