Let's be honest, we all know we should do "strength training" exercises at least two times a week but most of us don't. Why? Because we don't want to go all the way to the gym and then have to wrestle with some guy twice our size just to use a weight machine or the free weights.
Well we no longer have an excuse!
Because we have a 10 minute strength training program that uses nothing but your body and a chair! That means you do everything in the comfort of your own home. No gym, no stress, just strength training goodness! Check it out.
Do each of the 12 exercises for 45 seconds, then you've got 5 seconds to start the next exercise. No breaks. Just go straight until you're done. That will take you ten minutes to do but you'll hardly notice because you're moving from exercise to exercise so fast you don't get bored. Then take a breather, get a drink of water and start over if you want. Do the circuit as many times as you want, once, twice, three times. If the following exercises are too easy, just swap them out for harder ones (burpees etc.). Then let us know what you think!
