Hitting your cardio and strength goals every day is not an easy task. On some days, you can fit in a 45-minute Power Yoga class and still have time for a 30-minute meditation round. And on other days, you can’t even complete a sane round of sun salutations without being interrupted by piled up deadlines or pending household chores. Sure you’ve got muscles to warm up, weight to maintain and maybe a new playlist that you’ve been dying to listen to, but sometimes all you have is ten minutes. What do you do? How do you give yourself a fat-burning, heartbeat pumping workout that lets you go to bed content with your fitness goals, if 10 minutes is all you have?

How do you give yourself a fat-burning, heartbeat pumping workout that lets you maintain your fitness goals, if 10 minutes are all you have? 10 minutes of yoga are too less.

10-Minute Treadmill Workout
Here’s a simple treadmill workout that won’t need you to spend a ton of time on the treadmill but still give you an effective cardio boost that burns just the right amount of energy before you get busy again. This is a killer cardio session that doesn’t need you to switch those buttons every 30 seconds. Each interval is of 2 minutes. A combination of walking, jogging and sprinting spread over workout amplifying incline levels. These are the most effective ten minutes you will spend on the treadmill!
Grab a gym towel, skip the yoga mat and hit the tread! Save this one to your phone and off you go!
By the way, yoga has its own 10 minute workout for strength training and flexibility. A flow series which mixes some poses of sun salutations with other asanas (mostly our favourite) and is like the perfect concoction of inhaling, exhaling and stretching. It works your core and your legs and also tests your sense of balance. It’s a workout from YogaWorks and we found this on FitSugar’s youtube channel. Well. anything yoga and we are always ready to try, right?
10-Minute Yoga Workout
Ten minutes of intense workout and fat-burning. We’d love to do 4 rounds of these on a day when we’ve got a new playlist to enjoy! These workouts are fun for a change but nothing beats our regular sessions of flow yoga where we get to show off our snazzy graphic leggings and tank tops, on the yoga mat! If you think these workouts can help someone you know, don’t forget to share this blog with them. And remember no matter how busy it gets, just keep moving!
