Although I don’t always devote enough time to trying out new routines, I have a standby list of vids I turn to when I’m pressed for time and just want to get the job done as quickly as possible. Lately I thought I should try and expand my horizons and find some new faves! Below are some that I’ve found in my web explorations. I’ve tried them and I like them all. There’s a couple of really quick ones, and there are some that are longer, slower and will give you a more rounded workout. Either way, there’s something for everyone in this list so give it a go if you’ve got a spare 10- 30 minutes. Try one every second day to really see results!
