Home workout routines can be incredibly quick and effective, and you don't even need much home workout equipment. Just follow one rule: "Move as much as you can in the time you have," says Los Angeles trainer Gregg Miele, creator of selfdiscipline.com. "That means switching quickly between exercises and adding cardio bursts."
Miele, who has worked with Gisele Bündchen and Ellen Pompeo, has designed three home workout routines that each require one tool! Do them on their own if you're short on gear (or time), or combine them. Either way, you'll sculpt from head to toe, shed fat, and be the envy of your gym-going friends!
A stability ball, or 2 hand towels, or an 8- to 10-pound dumbbell (or a full 24-ounce water bottle). If you want to do all 3 workouts, you'll need all the tools.
How it works
Three times a week, do each move in order for 1 minute. Rest for a minute after the cardio burst, then repeat the series or start the next one. Do each group 3 times.
