The 10 Minute “Get Off the Couch” Workout

By July 26, 2016Workouts

10 minutes is all you need for this energy-boosting workout. 

We all have those days. Sometimes, all I need to feel better is a little movement. So if you’re feeling restless and like you want to move a little, without having to go all the way to the gym, take 10 minutes, stay home, and do this instead.

Don’t forget to drink water before, during and after your workout for best hydration, body function, and recovery!

Time: 10 minutes

Type of Workout: Bodyweight, circuit training, total body

Sh*t You Need: Clock or other timer*
