This workout is one you can do at home with just a set of handheld weights and enough space to move. You can keep it all low-impact and it takes just 20 minutes, or less if you’re crunched for time.

20-Minute Full Body Interval Workout
I’ve written this as a circuit workout, which means you’ll do the first three exercises, then repeat (as time allows) two more times before moving to the second circuit. In the video, I’m doing this as 45/15 intervals: 45 seconds of work with 15 seconds of rest between exercises. Feel free to do them as 40/20 intervals if you prefer. Rest 1 or 2 minutes after you’ve completed 3 rounds of the first circuit, then move on to the second.
Alternatively, you can simply do 12-15 reps of each exercise (both sides, when applicable), instead of working to a timer. Short on time? Do just 1-2 rounds of each circuit.
If you need ideas for a warm-up, try this one.
