here’s the first of my “10s in ten” workouts. :)
for me, the actual workout portion barely goes over 8 minutes— so stretching gets ~2 minutes. not a demanding workout at all! in fact, assuming you have more than 10 minutes, i highly recommend repeating the entire circuit once or twice to realllly feel the burn (trust me, you will). still, one run-through’s enough to get your heart rate going, and it’s definitely better than sitting around doing nothing.
the best part? it’s only ten minutes, so don’t you dare say you don’t have time for it. get off the computer for 10 minutes, and just do it.
you know what’s even better? because this uses your own body weight, everyone can benefit from this kind of workout. just ‘cause you’re in shape doesn’t mean it’s too easy for you! likewise, just ‘cause you may not be in tip-top shape doesn’t mean it’s gonna completely kill you. yay!
ps. what are scissors? i totally forgot to explain what these are! haha well, i’m sure you all know how to lunge, right? a scissor is where you lunge on one side and then you quickly transition into your other leg’s lunge by jumping. that is, you switch legs by jumping in the air.
