At the Men's Health editorial office, we have an unwritten rule: Don’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, we’ve seen the studies that show if you skip an exercise session twice in a row, you’re 60 percent more likely to skip your next one -- and become a fat, lazy sloth. (Actually, the researchers didn’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 Men’s Health Big Book of 15-Minute Workouts and The Women’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 don’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.
