8 minute workout


workout | marlee and you
I know it's not easy to find time to be active when life, school and work keep you busy. Eight minutes
is definitely not much of a time commitment, so this workout is totally doable on a daily basis. Plus this circuit is great for beginners, give it a try!

This is the perfect routine to get you going in the morning! All you need is a yoga mat, breathable athletic wear and some runners. I do this routine in my bedroom – not a lot of room required. By the time I get to the push-ups, I’m definitely feeling the burn.

Want more of a challenge? Do two sets of this routine with a one minute break in between.

Another healthy/active tip: if you love watching Youtube videos for hours like I do, try committing to doing an activity like squats for the whole duration while you watch. Or try doing jumping jacks during commercial breaks when watching TV. Do something similar to this periodically so that you aren't just sitting still for multiple hours.

Bonne santé

  11. Marlee your blog is the cutest! I'm so excited to follow. And honestly, this is such a great post because I've been struggling to get myself into the gym lately. This is so appealing because it's a short yet a high energy work out!
