Women do it all! We’re mothers, workers, masters of the house. We balance family, careers, schools, and housework. And at the end of the day, we’re often left exhausted, with no time to make it to the gym. It’s easy to always say to ourselves, “I’ll do it tomorrow.” But taking a little time to care for ourselves and our bodies can make us stronger. That’s why every woman can use a few short but intense workouts, such as this fat burner home workout.
If you’re busy, you don’t need to feel guilty about not making it to the gym. You don’t need to worry about only getting a short workout. Short workouts can actually be just as effective, especially if you already have an active lifestyle. A short workout boosts your calorie burn and helps you create lean muscle mass for all-over tone.
This home workout is just ten minutes, but don’t let the time fool you. These ten minutes are FURIOUS. We’re talking ten minutes of full sweating and heart racing. It’s great for upping your daily calorie burn, and since it takes only ten minutes, it fits into the busiest of lifestyles.
Aim to complete the moves as quickly as you can without losing proper form. The faster you go, the more calories you’ll burn. If you feel like giving up half way through, remember that it’s only ten minutes, and that if you get through those ten measly minutes you’ll have completed a total body fat burning workout. Ten minutes is all it takes!
What You’ll Need: a timer (a kitchen timer or your phone’s timer should work for this), and an optional mat or towel to lay on the floor.
What to Do: Set your timer for ten minutes. Perform the exercises in order, as fast as you can, without breaks in between until the ten minutes are up.
Below, we’ve included videos showing how to perform each move. Using proper form helps prevent injuries and ensures you’re getting the most out of your workout.
