We have a strength-training routine that only takes ten minutes for days when you’re really busy and only have a bit of time to work out at home. Keep reading to see the routine, and tell us more about the fitness moves you’d like to see on RWM! First, lunges are in order to strengthen your legs and core. With the weights that you feel comfortable with (I like 10 or 15 lb. weights in each hand) start standing with your feet at shoulder width apart. move one foot forward about 2”, and bend that leg slowly until your thigh is parallel to the floor. Come out of the pose slowly back into the standing position. Then, lunge with your other leg. Do 3 sets of 20.

Now, it’s time to work out your arms. Again, use the weights that you feel comfortable with. I like to use 5 lb. weights in each hand for this exercise because this exercise is challenging enough without the added weight. Standing with your feet shoulder width apart and your arms with the weights at your sides, slowly lift your arms out in front of you in a curved motion, keeping them straight. Do 3 sets of 10. After this, you will do basically the same thing, except for lifting your arms out to the sides. Do 3 sets of 10.

Stand on your yoga block with the balls of your feet, holding an amount of weight you are comfortable using. Stretch your legs by pushing your weight up and down on the yoga block. The challenge of balancing will stretch your hamstrings and calves, and will add strength to your legs. Do 3 sets of 20.

Tell us: Do you have any 10 minute exercise routines for days that you can’t make it to the gym?
