Tis’ the season of less time for exercise, even for me. Time to resort to the 10 Minute Tune-Up. Believe it or not, 10 minutes of stretching and/ or body weight toning exercises everyday will mean in a big difference in your overall balance, happiness and the way you look in your holiday clothing this season.
Here is a routine to get you started:
1) 6-10 Pilates Roll-ups or 10 second hold -toe touch where you are sitting on the ground with your legs out straight in front of you.
2) 1 min straight arm plank
3) 20 Push-ups (kneeling is fine)
4) 60 bicycle crunches
5) 1 min forearm plank
6) 20 squats, 15 lunges each leg
7) 6-10 Pilates Roll-ups or 10 second hold -toe touch where you are sitting on the ground with your legs out straight in front of you.

The secret to the 10 Minute Tune-Up is consistency. I always suggest doing your routine in the morning because it is more reliable to wake up 10 minutes early then fit your 10 minutes in to a day that may have gotten away from you. Also, any additional physical activity you do is a bonus if you get it done in the morning. You won’t regret it. I promise.
