A Quick and Fun Workout Routine
Let’s face it, workouts can sometimes feel repetitive. Following the same workout day in and day out without any change can place you on a fitness plateau that’s tough to break through and can also lead to overuse injuries, which may eventually hinder your results. This workout introduces some new moves that you’ve likely never done before, as well as one classic move. It incorporates a combination of upper body and lower body moves that are designed to work all of your major muscle groups. Because it exercises several key muscles at once, this whole-body approach is efficient, and perfect for those pressed for time.
Of course, ideally we should be getting 30 minutes of fitness a day. But when time is tight, doing one of our 10-Minute Tuneups whenever you can fit it in can make a significant difference.
Each exercise has an easier option. If you do those, aim to progress to the tougher version; gradually increase the number of times you try the tougher moves until you’re no longer doing the easier option.
Warm-up: 1 minute
With feet hip-width apart and arms by your sides, twist back and forth at the waist, letting your arms gradually swing higher and around your body. Or simply march briskly in place while swinging arms to shoulder height.
