Ever have one of those days where you feel like you barely have time to eat, let alone exercise? I know I do! If you are short on time and don’t have any gym equipment in sight not to worry!  You can still get a total body workout with nothing but yourself and a clock or timer!
Here is how you can increase blood flow, your heart rate, mental acuteness, and energy with this functionally efficient blast!

Set a large clock with a second hand in an area with plenty of space in your home, outside, hotel room or anywhere.

At the top of the first minute when the second hand reaches the “12” perform exercise (1) as fast as possible for an entire 60 seconds.
