This is workout two: 20 Minute Intervals Workout from The Best Quick Workouts for All-Day Energy article. 20 minutes is an important number to know when working out. Especially for those of you readers who feel frazzles, stressed or even depressed, 20 minutes to a key metric when getting fit.

The 20 minute marker during a workout is when your brain’s chemicals begin to change and produce stress-fighting, happy hormones to make you feel awesome, sleep better and be less stressed. This workout will take you to that fantastic workout “high” place where you feel like you can conquer the world, without taking too much time from your busy schedule. Even more importantly, this workout will get you back to looking like a knockout and fast- it’s a full body toner and tightener. All you need is a set of hand weights, probably starting at 5 pounds each and then building up as you increase in strength and endurance.

If you have more time, you can do this circuit up to 3 times, resulting in an intense 30 minute session that can be done anywhere with just hand weights. If you don’t own hand weights, buy a pair online, at a consignment shop or at a discount house to get a bargain. Hand weights are a great piece of equipment for our home as they are both versatile and easy to store.
