Our favorite at home 20-minute workout

Something I’ve learned in my fitness journey is a few minutes of exercise can be all you need. If you’re looking to maintain general fitness 20 minutes can go a long way. You can get your heart rate up, free you mind and sculpt your body.

This quick routine is perfect for a little lunch break workout. Perform circuit 3 times. The third time push it. It's where you’ll make your biggest gains.

10 lunges to kick -5 on each side

  • Do a lunge by stepping backwards.
  • Then bring the foot forward and kick out in front of you.
