Intense 10 minute workout
I refuse to hear any more excuses as to why you don’t have time to exercise. Make the time to improve your health and wellbeing. I have made it so easy for you. This workout is only 10 minutes, it will work your whole body and it can be completed anywhere; the park, backyard, living room, bedroom, office etc. This workout will be sure to get your heart pumping, burn energy and speed up your metabolism.
Here’s a few tips on how you can incorporate it into your day:
– Let the dog run around at the park while you complete the routine.
– In front of your favourite TV show.
– In the kitchen when you know you have to wait 10 minutes for your quinoa to boil or sweet potato slices to bake.
– Outside the bathroom door while your waiting in line for your turn to use the shower.
– In the backyard while your kids are playing or copying your new moves.
and many many more…..
Explanations and videos for the exercises can be found at the bottom of the workout. NO STOPPING and try and beat your time each attempt. You can also make this workout longer by adding in 1 (0r 4) more sets with different repetition numbers eg. x8, x22, x13
Start with a smile and best of luck!

I have a question and I'm wondering if you can share your expertise.
Hubby and I have been incorporating these types of short workouts into our daily routine lately and after 3 weeks we have started to notice the build up of muscle fatigue. Is there something in particular that we should be eating to help with muscle recovery?
I started typing up a reply but there was so much I wanted to share so I've decided to make a post of it. Thank you for your question & the post will be up by the end of today :)
