Pinched for time? Try this 10-minute cardio quickie workout

It seems like summer days are never ending with everything that is packed into them. But what’s a girl to do when it’s supposed to be the most relaxed time of the year, and the time when you’re supposed to have the best bod? No one wants to spend their summer days working out. Trust us, we know. So we’ve whipped up a ten-minute cardio blaster to get you whipped into shape quick. Try it out on those days where you just can’t seem to find time to workout. Or hey, even try it on those days when you do have free time, but you don’t feel like spending it at the gym!


Squat Jump

Minute 1:00-2:00

Start in a regular squat position – your feet should be shoulder width apart and your arms should be by your sides. Begin the exercise by doing a regular squat, but then jump up as explosively as you can with your arms towards the air. When you come down to land, lower down into a squat position. This is one rep. Repeat for one minute.


Mountain Climbers

Minute 2:00-3:00

Start with your hands on the floor, a little more than shoulder width apart, and one leg bent under your body. The other leg should be extended back. Keep your upper body in place, and alternate your leg positions. As you pull one leg in, the other one should be extending back simultaneously. It’ll feel like you’re jumping from position to position. Do this for one minute.


Sprint Intervals

Minute 3:00-9:00

Run as fast as you can for 30 seconds, and then follow with a minute jogging break. Repeat this three more times.



Minute 9:00-10:00

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your arms by your sides. Jump up with your arms towards the ceiling and land in a crouched position with your hands on the ground. Now, push your feet back, so that you are in a push-up position. Return to the crouched position and then jump up to be back to the start. All of these movements should flow together. Do as many as you can in 30 seconds.

Keep your salads lightly dressed. Too much dressing on your fresh greens can hold more calories than you think and leave your salad soggy. Yuck.
