This Workout Tones and Strengthens Every Inch of Your Body in Just 15 Minutes
Can't find the time to exercise? Well, I'm going to let you in on a little secret: You don't need to work out for hours and hours a week to lose weight, build strength, and improve your overall health. In fact, you can complete a full-body workout in just 15 minutes—and you don't even need to go to the gym to do it. The key: compound exercises, which are double-duty moves that fire up multiple muscle groups at once, allowing you to maximize your limited workout time.
The following 15-minute total body workout consists of eight highly effective compound exercises that not only strengthen muscles in your arms, legs, and core, but also challenge your balance and coordination.
Equipment you need:You'll need one light set of dumbbells (3, 5, or 8 pounds) as well as one heavy set (10, 12, or 15 pounds).
Directions: Perform each exercise 10 to 12 times, then move onto the next with as little rest in between as possible. Repeat the whole circuit two times. Do it three to five times a week.
