5. Pump Up Your Toning Routine
It might surprise you to see how many toning exercises you can complete in just five minutes if you take two important steps:
• Combine upper- and lower-body movements into one exercise (e.g., squats with shoulder raises or lunges with biceps curls).
• Go from one exercise to the next without stopping for more than a 15- or 20-second break during the allotted five minutes.
You’ll keep your heart rate up more than if you were to exercise only one body part at a time with lots of rest in between sets. Plus, you’ll save time—perhaps five minutes or more—that you can then incorporate back into your workout.
