The 5-Minute Sculpting Circuit You Can Do At Home

Whether you're traveling, pinched for time, or just can't muster the energy to schlep to the gym, this excuse-proof workout is the one thing you need in your arsenal. At under five minutes but full of intensity, this Tabata workout designed by trainer Kaisa Keranen (@KaisaFit) will give you the quick burn and boost you need when you can't fit in a full-on workout.

All you need is your body, some space, and a mat (if you have one). Like a true Tabata-style workout, you perform each high-intensity move for 20 seconds, then rest for 10. Complete the full set of exercises two to four times, or until you just can't go anymore. (Want to really tire yourself out? Add a few rounds of another Kaisa Tabata routine.)
