If you can count to ten, then you can get fit. Whether you are working out in your basement after work or nestled in some hotel on a business trip, doing ten critical exercises in sets of ten will give you the quick, productive training session you want, all the while leaving you with plenty of time to complete all the other things life throws at you.
Before you begin, however, make sure you are organized. If you have access to a set of dumbbells, place them out where you can get them easily. If you are traveling and didn't feel like lugging around a suitcase full of weights, take along a set of resistance bands; these will do just fine. Also, find a chair. Make sure you have ample room around you and that you have water close by. Once you are set and ready, begin the workout below. Remember, everything is done in a set of ten, and you should move from one exercise to the next with little to no rest in between.
1. Standard push-up
2. Standing bodyweight squat
3. Side oblique raises
4. Tricep chair dips
5. "V" ups (sit-ups)
6. Standing concentration curls
7. Standing calf raises (with or without weights)
8. Leg lifts (for abdominals)
9. Seated shoulder presses
Once you have completed the first cycle, rest for a minute or two, towel off, grab some water, and begin again. Complete the rotation as many times as you wish, and just keep counting to ten. Before you know it, if you eat healthy and stay active, you'll be fit and healthy.
