Try the six-minute circuit

So no, I'm not going to tell you that you can get the body of your dreams by working out for six minutes a day, three days a week. However I am going to tell you to try to do the following "Six-Minute Circuit" I created as many times as you can in 20 minutes. This workout requires no equipment besides a stop-watch and can be done at home or outside.

Directions:

• Warm up for 5 minutes.

• Perform the following exercises in the sequence listed.

• Rest at the end of the circuit for 1-2 minutes if needed. Grab a drink of water and continue.

• Repeat as many times as you can in 20 minutes - NO LONGER! Even if you do not have enough time to complete another circuit start it and finish at 20 minutes.

• Take note how far you get, the next time you do this workout, try to get further.

• Stretch when you are done

• Have fun!

Perform the following exercises for 30 seconds each:

• Jump and Stick - Start standing with knees bent, feet about hips width apart, jump up, land on one foot, balance, alternate feet.

• Bodyweight Squat

• Push Up

• Leg Lever - Lay on the ground with feet in the air, lift your hips off the ground and try to reach the ceiling/sky with your heels.

• Stationary Lunge (30 sec. on each leg)

• Jumping Jacks

• Spiderman Push Ups - Standard push up or modified on your knees, lower chest to ground and bring left knee to left elbow. Return to pushup position and alternate sides.

• Overhead Toe Touches - Laying on back with feet in the air and arms extended over you head. Lift your shoulders off the ground with you hands reaching up towards your feet.
