hit it!

so it's well known that high intensity training is ever more popular these days as opposed to slogging it out on the treadmill for hours.... but how do you know how to make the most of your 10 minutes you have to train? 

follow these four exercises for an all over body work out in no time at all

squat jumps - feet hip width apart, push hips back. jump as high as possible, landing in squat position. do as many as you can for half a minute then jog on the spot up to 1 minute 

stair sprints - find some stairs and simply run up two at a time and jog down as fast as you can for 20 seconds, rest for 10 then repeat twice

shadow box - do 45 seconds of punching alternating arms as fast as you can, holding weights to increase intensity. again jog on spot for 15 seconds

burpees - starting in either half or full push up do a push up then jump your feet in under your chest and jump into the air, clapping hands overhead. return to push up and do as many as possible in 45 seconds then rest for 15 (or do plank if you can hack it!)

total time - 4 and half minutes work out, be sure to warm up and do a cool down afterwards - all within 10 minutes! 

combine this with at least 30 minutes of daily activity - walking/cycling etc
