Be creative. Mix movements up in different combinations and vary the number of reps day to day. For example, pick all lower body one day and all upper body the next. Once you have decided on the movements and rep scheme for one round, complete as many rounds as possible in twenty minutes. </p> <p>The point is to work at a high intensity for your fitness level for the entire twenty minutes. If the exercise allows, try a more challenging version when it starts to feel easy. </p> <p>Focus on compound movements that target multiple muscle groups at once. For example, combine a lunge with a tricep dip or a squat with a push-up. This will increase efficiency and calorie burn. </p> <p>Don’t stop moving during the whole twenty minutes and move quickly between exercises to keep your heart rate up. Vary the movements, reps, and the order of exercises day to day. </p> <p>There are many different variations of at-home workouts for women, and there is no right or wrong way to get your workout in. The important thing is that you carve out the twenty minutes it takes to do the workout consistently, so you can feel and look your best.</p> </section> </article>
