This 10 minute workout consists of only 5 moves that can be done from anywhere. The equipment needed can easily be swapped for alternatives. No free weights? No problem. Grab a couple of water bottles instead. And the push up bars are optional but they would be a great addition to your at home gym as this piece of equipment alone is a complete upper body workout targeting chest, shoulders, and triceps- while reducing the stress on wrists.
The great thing about this workout is that since it is high-intensity, you can burn so many calories in a short amount of time- which means give it all you got! I will be doing this workout with you until the very end so don’t give up. Take this workout outside and you’ll get a dose of Vitamin D while you’re at it!
