Be Well Workout of the Week: The Workout to Do When You Have No Time
If this week is a downright crazy week for you, and finding time to fit a workout into your day feels nearly impossible, try this quick full-body circuit workout on for size. It’s made up of three mini 10-minute workouts that are perfect for breaking up throughout the day (or spreading throughout multiple days for that matter, if you’re in that much of a crunch). As long as you have a set of dumbbells (or two water bottles of some cans of beans, really!), you can do these mini workouts whenever and wherever you can squeeze ’em in.
The goal with these is simply to push yourself to make it through each circuit as many times as you can in 10 minutes. And of course, the goal is to try to get through all three of these circuits in one workout session, but let’s be real: life happens. So when you do find the time, set your alarm for 10 minutes, get going and see what you can accomplish. You got this!
