20 Minute Weight-Loss Workout

A workout that gets results!

When you live in a society in which it’s easier to reach for a basket of greasy fries than for a bowl of salad, it’s easy for the extra pounds to pile on. And because weight loss exercise routines can be daunting, many of us get off on the wrong foot when it comes to fitness. At Skinny Ms., we’ve tried many weight-loss workouts, but this one is special in that it utilizes circuits and uses only body weight-based exercises. You’ll be amazed at the results when sticking to this program and eating a healthy, clean diet.

Equipment needed: Interval timer

What to Do: Complete each exercise for 45 seconds, then rest 15 seconds after each one. Repeat the circuit 4 times and you’ve completed your 20 Minute Weight-Loss Workout. See the videos below for demonstrations of proper form and technique. Repeat this workout 3-4 times weekly on non-consecutive days for optimal results.
