Default 10 Minutes A Day Exercise Challenge - July 22 - 27

We've all got 10 minutes each day to spare...right?!?! Why not devote just 10 minutes a day to exercise!! It's a great way to start an exercise habit and an awesome way to build a fitness base to build upon! The workouts I've selected don't use any equipment except an exercise mat and/or a chair. Don't have a mat, no problem you can simply use a towel! Some of the workouts may have variations that vary in intensity. Pick the level that's most suitable for you! If it doesn't show a variation and you find it's too intense, just move at your own pace. Remember though, these workouts are short so you want to work at a pace that gets your heart rate up. Make the most of your 10 minutes! Enjoy!


Tuesday - 8 Minute Hotel Room Cardio. You'll need a mat and chair for today's workout.

Wednesday - 10-Minute Strong Standing Abs. You can use hand weights if you have them, but the workout can be done without any weights. You can always use soup cans if you want to use weights but don't have any!

Thursday - 9-Minute, Low Impact High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Workout. No equipment required.

Friday - 8 Minute Legs. No equipment required.

Saturday - 10 Minute Total Body Strength. You'll need a mat for today's workout.

Sunday - 13 Minute Quick Stretch. Today's workout is a little longer than 10 minutes, but it's a nice relaxing stretch workout so nothing too tough today! All you'll need is a mat. You deserve this nice relaxing workout! Enjoy!

BONUS WORKOUT! Do you have some extra time? Want to burn some more calories? Try adding in this 10 Minute Low Impact Kickboxing Workout if time permits! You won't regret it! No equipment required.

Nice little burn for Tuesday Hotel Room Cardio Workout! I burned 50 calories even! It's also important to note that 50 calories is only about 1 cookie! This is why 'they' say you can't out train a bad diet! Sometimes people over estimate how many calories they burn during exercise or even daily movement. I once had a friend tell me she takes the 3 flights of stairs at work every morning and figured she was doing well and burning about an extra 100 calories. Not even close! Taking 3 flights of stairs takes about 2 minutes max....that would equal more like 10-20 calories depending on the person!

Moral of the story....don't make the mistake thinking you're burning more than you are and then eating to compensate for all your exercise. You might just undo all you just did!
