At the Men's Health editorial office, we have an unwritten rule: Donâ€™t blow off a workout no matter how busy you are. See, we know through experience that we're much more productive in the afternoon if we break for a run outside, a game of basketball, or a quick lifting circuit around noontime -- even when we're on deadline. Plus, weâ€™ve seen the studies that show if you skip an exercise session twice in a row, youâ€™re 60 percent more likely to skip your next one -- and become a fat, lazy sloth. (Actually, the researchers didnâ€™t go that far, but you catch our drift.)
Excuses beget more excuses. So, let's eliminate the most common excuse for skipping workouts and falling out of shape: lack of time. How? Give this 15-minute total-body metabolic circuit a try. (It's just one of over 80 speedy workouts in our new books, The Menâ€™s Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts and The Womenâ€™s Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts.) You can do this circuit in your hotel room during a business trip, in your office, or anywhere. We believe it'll convince you that you donâ€™t have to spend an hour at the gym to get in a fat-melting strength workout. You can squeeze exercise into even the craziest of workdays. And eliminate the excuse "too busy" from your vocabulary forever.
