Simple Home 10-Minute Workout

Life can get busy, and oftentimes we find ourselves traveling or otherwise unable to get to the gym for a workout.

Using only your own body, this workout routine doesn’t require much, it can be done in your living room or bedroom first thing when you wake up in the morning.

Start with a quick warm up (two-three minutes of jumping jacks and jogging in place) then go onto the moves below.

Standing Lunges

Start standing with feet together. Step right leg forward, bend knees, keeping right knee stacked over right ankle, left hip in line with left knee. Straighten legs and return to standing; alternate sides with each rep. Do this for 60 seconds.

Rest 15 seconds.

Push-Ups

Start in a high plank with wrists directly under shoulders, body in straight line from head to toe. Bend elbows, keeping them close to torso, to lower chest to ground, then straighten arms. Do this for 60 seconds.

Rest 15 seconds.

Jumping jacks

Stand tall with arms by sides. Jump legs apart and swing hands overhead. Jump feet back together as hands come back down to sides. Do this for 90 seconds.
