Be Well Workout of the Week: This Workout Proves You Can Do Anything for 30 Seconds

Stop watches at the ready!

This is the perfect workout for anyone who need to be constantly switching from move to move to remain engaged. You’re going to complete each exercise in the circuit for a measly 30 seconds, working really hard during the interval, and then moving on to the next exercise as quickly as you can. You can do anything for 30 seconds, right?

Weights are only needed for the first circuit, so if you don’t have any laying around or, perhaps you’re on the move, feel free to use whatever you have on hand — water bottles, cans of beans, two wine bottles, you know, those types of things … Okay, let’s go, people!
