10 Minute Workout
It might not seem like a lot of time, but it increases your blood pressure enough to fire up your metabolism and burn calories by being active for just 10 minutes. Vigorous exercise also releases endorphins and strengthens the muscle, bones and lungs (putting you in a good mood). Ever wonder why with a smile, you normally end a workout?
Many individuals believe they have to engage in long, grueling workouts every day in order to stay in shape. That's not the case, though. Fast workouts are actually known to be just as successful in comparison with long workouts. Studies show that short sessions of high-intensity interval training will bring you into shape quickly and effectively.
Here are a few stretches that can be integrated into any workout that takes less than five minutes to complete, if you want to concentrate on improving your endurance. Do you really want to focus on your abs? Check out a 10-minute crunchless ab workout or this one on a five-minute plank sequence in this tutorial.
