It takes time and effort to get fit. You won't wake up one morning with a super lean, super toned bod. We all know this. Consistency and effort are where it is at. But, sometimes, we just don't have the time. Life can be demanding and more pressing concerns take over. Before you know it, you've missed several days of workouts! But don't panic, it happens. If you make a few tweaks to your daily routine, you should be able to keep your fitness levels up when life pulls your attention elsewhere.
Add these to your daily mix and nothing will stop you:
1. Add a 10-minute workout
It doesn't matter how busy you are, you have 10 minutes. You'd be surprised how many calories you can burn in that time. If you are in need of ideas, check out Sweatflix℠!

2. Sneak in more cardio
You don't need a lot of time to fit in more cardio. Just make small changes in your day. Park your car as far away from the office as possible. Say no to the elevator and take the stairs. Stand up and walk around while on a phone call. Take a walk around the office every hour or so. These seem like little things that won't do much but they are a great way to add a little extra calorie burn to your day. Any movement is better than no movement!

3. Do supersets
Supersets will maximize your weight training efforts. To perform a superset, pick a muscle group and do a few exercises for that muscle group without taking any rest in between. If legs are your chosen target, try doing deadlifts, weighted squats and weighted walking lunges, for example. Repeat the round a few times. Doing this will cut your workout time while upping your intensity levels and giving your muscles a great blast, burning more calories.
