It’s the weekend, and this is usually the time most kick back and relax. It is also a time when a lot fo folks try to cram in errands they did not accomplish during week, spend time with friends and family, or are venturing out on a vacation. With so much going on in a 48 hour period, who has time to focus on their workout program? Ummmm….if you are reading this, YOU DO! Don’t worry, you won’t have to go to a gym to do this.

In fact, I put together a little gem that can be done with minimal equipment or bodyweight only. However, the one thing everyone can get from this workout is a body full of sweat, major calories burned, and a bundle of energy to get your weekend started off right. Did I mention, this will get your metabolism racing as well. Ahhhhh yeah!

I know you are saying, “Well bring it on Trainer-Boy!” No worries. One last thing, don’t think this 10 minute workout is confined only to the weekend. Feel free to toss this in on any day during your training program.

Remember you can pick either workout. One uses a medicine ball, kettlebells or dumb bells, and the alternate does not. Perform each exercises for 1 minute with only 30 seconds rest between each. Once you have completed all 5 exercises, rest for 1 minute and perform another round. There you have it, 10 minutes of work, 5 minutes of rest, and a lot of calories burned. let the madness begin!

1. Medicine Ball Slams
2. Double Kettlebell Clean & Front Squat (can also be performed w/ dumb bells)
3. Mt. Jumpers
4. Double Kettlebell Jerks (can also be performed w/dumb bells)
5. Burpees
No Equipment/No Problem Alternative:

1. Push Ups
2. Jump Squats
3. Mt. Jumpers or Mt. Climbers
4. Reverse Stick Up Lunges (perform a reverse lunge w/ your arms raised high above your head)
5. Imaginary Jump Ropes
