Summer has a way of sneaking up. And when the flesh-baring weather hits, you want to be ready. To see real results in a short amount of time, we're revving up your fitness routine—but that doesn't mean you'll be slaving at the gym for hours. In fact, you'll carve sleek muscle and torch body fat in as little as 10 minutes a day. "Although these strength routines are short, they're highly efficient, because they feature compound exercises that work more than one muscle group at a time," says strength and conditioning specialist Chris Powell
He designed this program in the same way he trains his clients when they need to shape up quickly. Each sweat session also creates an "after-burn" bonus that keeps your metabolism going long after you're done. Simply alternate between Workout A and Workout B four days a week; turn up the hot-body effect with the perfect dose of cardio.
Another big bonus: This plan doesn't require you to fuel all your workouts with kale salad. You need to eat well, but we've made it easy; throughout this guide, look for nutrition tips from Christine Gerbstadt, M.D., R.D., author of Doctor's Detox Diet: The Ultimate Weight Loss Prescription. Stay on track and see a hotter body in as little as two weeks. (We grant you full permission to order one of these to-die-for swim suits as added incentive!)
