Even if you have a packed schedule (enrolled in 18+ credits, belong to at least three clubs, have an internship or start-up… you know who you are), that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your workouts or fitness. In fact, short, high-intensity workouts are just as beneficial as long, moderate-intensity ones.

Here are some simple, fast-paced, high-intensity circuit workouts that you can do anywhere, no equipment necessary. You can even do them while watching Netflix; they only take 10-20 minutes!

Perform each exercise for the designated number of reps and then move on to the next exercise. After you complete the circuit, go back to the beginning and repeat 1-4 more times.

Push yourself as hard as you can during the workout. Since you’re constantly changing the exercise the 10 minutes will fly by, and your body will thank you later!
