The 15-Minute Bodyweight Workout
Jog in place (or do jumping jacks or jump rope) for one minute to warm up your muscles. Then, complete exercises one through five for 30 seconds each, and rest for 30 seconds at the end of each round. See if you can hang for five rounds total — that’s just 15 minutes of work!
