15-Minute Exercises for Weightloss

Everyone knows that maintaining a healthy lifestyle necessitates regular exercise. Finding the time to work out, on the other hand, maybe more difficult than the workout itself. However, if you only have a quarter-hour to spare, we’ll show you 10 15-minute workouts that are both quick and effective.

1. Primal Blueprint

If you enjoy lifting weights, the Primal Blueprint workout [1] is for you. Two dumbbells, kettlebells, or water bottles are required. Cleans, squats, bent-over circles, and overhead presses are done in three circuit loops of six repetitions each. What’s the catch? Between cycles, you can’t lay the weights down.

2. Yoga Flow Workout


Follow these steps for a fast and effective yoga flow workout [2]:

  1.  Mountain pose.
  2.  Forward fold from Swan Dive.
  3.  The downward-facing dog from a step back.

  5.  Upward-facing dog by lifting your chest.
  6.  Downward-facing dog after raising hips.
  7.  Low lunge with one foot.
  8.  Forward fold.
  9.  Mountain pose.

3. Quick Cardio

This exercise could be repeated four times with each repetition halving the walking time.
