All it takes is five minutes a day.

In this plan, you’ll perform one five-minute workout five days a week for four weeks, taking two rest days per week whenever you want them. At the end of each week, you’ll progress to a more difficult workout.

Each workout is made up of five exercises designed by New York City-based fitness trainer Chelsea Dornan. For each move, do as many reps as you can in 60 seconds. Then move on to the next exercise. That’s it!


1. Scissor Legs Plank

Looking for a deep inner thigh exercise, then you need to try out the scissor plank. It also works on the back and shoulder muscles. To get into the traditional plank position, lift your body off the ground with your spine straight you’re your feet and hands supporting your weight. Next, raise your right leg while holding the plank position.
