So when you've only got 15-20 minutes, try this quick 15-20 minute High Intensity Interval Training at home. Lots of compound movements that work all the muscles in the body and leave you SUPER sweaty!
5 exercises - 50 seconds on, 10 seconds off, repeat 3-4 times. Download the Interval Timer app to time yourself.
1. Forward and Reverse Lunge with 6 Mountain Climbers.
2. Spider Push-Ups

After your workout, fuel your muscles with a post-workout drink or smoothie. Give this a try:
- Almond milk
- half a banana

Blend and enjoy! Pat yourself on the back for your hard work. You'll be burning calories all day long after this doozy!
