Remember, its quality not quantity that really counts. It’s more than possible to have a great high intensity training session in just 20 minutes. Te key is to incorporate both cardio and strength training. Here is my quick 20 minute workout, perfect for toning up those troublesome areas such as triceps, shoulders, back and abs all you need is a stability ball, some hand weights and a skipping rope. Perform each of the following exercises for 60 seconds before moving to the next. Once you’ve completed all exercises, rest for 60 seconds and then repeat the circuit again up to 3 times.

Start with your feet and hands together. Using your legs, jump off the ground as far as you comfortably can while opening your legs out wide. At the same time lift your arms making a star shape in the air. Bend your knees as you land. Repeat.


Jump both feet off the ground together as you bring the rope under your feet.
