Are you looking for a quick and effective 10-minute workout you can do anywhere, anytime? This 10-minute low-impact circuit workout is easy on the joints and uses only bodyweight so you don’t need any equipment. The compound exercises engage multiple muscle groups at the same time, increasing your heart rate, and burning up calories.

A low-impact circuit workout is great for anyone needing a break from high impact or anyone just looking for joint friendly alternatives. Low impact doesn’t mean low intensity. By using large-range-of-motion movements and keeping a pace, you can give your total body a serious challenge.

This workout starts out with a good warm up to promote mobility in the joints and warm up the muscles. There are three total circuits in this workout. Each circuit consists of three bodyweight exercises in a row, 30 seconds each and repeat then them once. Take a 30 seconds rest in-between the circuits. You’ll do squats, lunges, pushups, core body work and more. End with a quick stretch to promote flexibility and recovery in the muscles, and you’ve got yourself a great 10-minute workout.

    This was my first day of the 10 day challenge. I will be doing the others on my days off. This workout was awsome


    I liked this for a quick easy workout at the end of my work day!

    I loved it! I suffer from joint pain and usually have a hard time working out 5x wkly due to being in so much pain after. But, this kept my heartrate up, challenged me, and gave me the energy I needed for the rest of my day. I'm working from home due to the mandated closures from covid-19. UTV will help me meet my goals, even though I can't go to the gym. Thank u!
